Limp Body, And The Tongue Feels Bitter After Typhus?
Hello, I want to ask my mother, the week after that, it hurts right now, but why is her body still weak, the tongue still feels bitter, and after being out of the bathroom, it’s always cold, why?
Hello Rahma, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should explain first, has your mother already been treated for typhoid fever and took antibiotics until they run out? If not, then your mother should complete the treatment first. Usually the symptoms of typhoid fever will improve on the second or third day of treatment and healing occurs within 7-10 days after therapy.
If indeed your mother does not experience improvement in symptoms after undergoing therapy, it needs to be re-evaluated, whether the symptoms are not cured or the symptoms have healed but returned again. If the symptoms do not heal, it is necessary to reevaluate the antibiotics given whether they are still effective in overcoming the infection (the bacteria that cause typhoid can experience resistance to the antibiotics given). In this case, the doctor will suggest an antibiotic change or a culture and antibiotic sensitivity check first.
If the symptoms have improved and then return again, then there is a possibility of relapse. In 5-10% of patients who have experienced symptoms improvement after antibiotic therapy, relapses or the return of typhoid infections can occur (most often within a period of 1 week after therapy). Relapse infections are usually milder and occur shorter than the first infection, but therapy with antibiotics again is also recommended.
You should bring your mother back to see a doctor. You can also take your mother to an internal medicine doctor for further evaluation and management.
Some things you need to consider:
make sure your mother eats food that is guaranteed to be clean
you should eat foods that are still warm
drink more fluids
give soft food first, give food more often
make sure your mother washing hands with soap before eating and after defecation
get enough sleep and rest
