Is It Okay To Drink Worm Juice While Taking Typhus Medicine?
Hello my brother I was experiencing symptoms of typhus .. checked at the midwife and given licoprima medicine .. but my brother’s condition continued to fluctuate in fever. And there are neighbors who tell you that worm juice can treat typhus? Is the worm juice really safe and can it be consumed with the medicine from the pawn? Thank you
Hi Mila, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Typhus or typhoid fever is an infectious disease of the digestive tract, caused by the bacteria Salmonella typii. The risk factor increases in children due to the lack of strong immunity, open eating habits, and unhygienic processing of food and beverages. People with typoid fever will complain of a high fever that lasts 1-3 weeks, stomach pain, diarrhea or constipation. The treatment is to use antibacterial, one example of a drug that can be used is the drug that you mentioned. The drug contains cotrimoxazole. Regarding treatment with worm juice, there are no related studies. Worm juice is still limited to traditional medicine. So that we cannot know the benefits of typoid fever and side effects for people who consume it. Typhoid fever that does not get antibiotics, has a high risk of developing complications. Complications that can occur are gastrointestinal bleeding, perforated intestines and death.
I suggest that you should consult an internal medicine doctor (if your younger sibling is 18 years of age and over) or a pediatrician (if your younger sibling is under 18 years old). The doctor will carry out related examinations to find out whether your younger sibling has typoid or other diseases. If the condition is severe, then hospitalization is required.
Temporary treatment that you can do:
1. give Paracetamol to reduce fever,
2.Give plenty of water,
3. provide soft food such as porridge with high calories and protein,
4. Take precautions by processing food hygienically.
So, hopefully it's useful.
