Overcoming Typhus That Is Prolonged To Almost 1 Month?
Hello, do you want to ask if it’s reasonable or not if you have typhus for more than 1 month? Where we’ve tried to treat it outpatient. Starting with a prescription of the antibiotic chloramphenicol (3 packages for 15 days) was replaced with a patent antibiotic ciprofloxacin (1 package for 5 days). As the patient was worried because he had taken antibiotics too often. Please explain and the solution. Thank you
Typhus abdominalis or typhoid fever is a disease caused by Salmonella typhii bacterial infection. Symptoms caused by typhus can vary from mild diarrhea accompanied by mild fever to multisystemic disorders that can result in death.
In addition to being dangerous, typhus also has a high rate of recurrence, especially in the one year since infection, so generally doctors will recommend you to take control after treatment or if the complaint is resolved.
Like most cases of bacterial infections, typhoid infections are also treated by administering antibiotics that are appropriate for the bacteria. Common antibiotics used for typhoid infections are chloramphenicol or cefalosporin antibiotics. The use of this antibiotic is ideally used in accordance with the results of the bacterial resistance test and carried out for 28 days to ensure the bacteria have died completely so you should discuss about your condition with the doctor who treats you if your complaint does not improve after you take treatment so the doctor can do appropriate follow-up.
Take medication according to your doctor's advice and consult any complaints that you experience so that your treatment goes well and the condition is resolved. In addition, you can also make the following recommendations regarding your complaint:
Keep your food clean in general. Consumption of soft food that is easily digested. Consume enough fluids
