Typhus or typhoid is a gastrointestinal infection caused by Salmonella typhii bacterial infection. This disease causes a series of symptoms such as fever, especially in the afternoon, nausea, heartburn, constipation, and impaired food intake. Curing this disease usually requires good treatment in terms of soft food intake, adequate rest, and the role of proper antibiotics, treatment usually takes quite a long time, namely up to 2 weeks more. Post-treatment is normal if a person has not been able to return to normal before, including in terms of appetite. However, to keep the intake fulfilled, give small portions of food more often. If a condition such as fever is found again, it is possible that the infection has not been resolved or that there is a new infection. In addition to consuming enough water to prevent dehydration due to fever, it is important for you to check your younger sibling directly to the doctor to see if there are other possible causes behind the complaint. Here we attach an article about typhus. Hopefully this is useful.
