Regarding Treatment After Typhus?
Doctor, I often have typhus and ulcers. Even though the diet is regular. I also consume worm water, which the villagers usually use for typhus. It just feels like it still doesn’t heal. Do you need an endoscopy? Oh yeah, are omelettes and precedels fried? He said typhus could not eat fried fritters. And is typhus allowed to shower and wash it? Some say that during typhus you should not wash your hair first, fearing fever again. I should have checked last week, only until now I am lazy to go to the hospital because I can’t sit down for a long time and have to lie down. I’m afraid of being treated again. So seek treatment at home even though you still have a fever. Why don’t you? Please explain, doctor.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Typhus is a disease that occurs due to Salmonella typhii bacterial infection. This disease affects a person usually through food and drink that has been contaminated. The most common symptom in typhus is a high fever that fluctuates. Usually rises at night and falls in the morning and during the day, but not to normal. In addition, symptoms of diarrhea / loose stools may also appear or even constipation or difficulty defecating. Headaches, stomachaches, and a dirty tongue can also be signs that someone has typhus.
Apart from typhus, you also need to know other diseases that are characterized by fever, namely:
Dengue fever Malaria Strep throat Hepatitis
In your case, if it is really due to typhus, endoscopy or examination by inserting binoculars into your digestive tract is not routine. Usually to diagnose typhus or differentiate it from other diseases, only a blood test, Widal test or Tubex TF test is needed.
Regarding your question about the prohibition of typhus in the form of a ban on eating fried foods, not taking baths and not washing your hair, it is not true. People with typhus are still allowed to take a bath, and even if there are restrictions on fried food (a term for all fried side foods, such as tofu, tempeh, bakwan, cakes, eggs) even then it is more to maintain food hygiene and provide stomach space for more nutritious food. , but not absolutely prohibited.
Typhoid treatment can be done at home or in hospital, with usually those who are treated in the hospital are those who get typhus accompanied by continuous vomiting, repeated diarrhea, flatulence, and other complications. However, it is not the patient who determines the need for someone to be hospitalized or may be at home, but the doctor after carrying out a series of examinations on the patient. In the end, the doctor will give it back to the patient and family. But for those who decide what to do at first, it's still a doctor.
So what you have to do is have your condition checked by a doctor. First, to ascertain whether you have typhus or not, and second, whether the treatment of your disease can be done at home on an outpatient basis or must be hospitalized.
While waiting to see a doctor, keep a healthy lifestyle by consuming at least 8 glasses of water a day, avoiding cigarette smoke, stress, and spicy, sour and oily foods, getting enough sleep, limiting physical activity, regularly taking medication and control, and keep eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
