Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Typhoid fever is a disease caused by the bacterial infection of salmonella typhi which usually enters the digestive tract through contaminated food.
Symptoms include fever, abdominal pain, bowel pattern disorders (diarrhea or constipation), nausea, vomiting.
Thus, it is likely that the cold cough that you experience is not caused by typhoid fever, but can be caused by:
Viral infection: usually caused by decreased immunity and lasts <1 week, the sputum is usually clear or white
Bacterial infection: often appears as a secondary infection from a virus, the sputum is usually yellow / greenish in color
Allergies: usually clear sputum, nose and throat feel very itchy, recur
To ascertain the cause of your complaint, you should further consult with a general practitioner to be examined directly. You should not take any medications before your diagnosis is established. Because taking drugs without knowing the disease and without knowing the dosage is dangerous and should not be done. For that, you can discuss what drugs you should take and the interactions with the typhoid fever medication you are taking with your doctor after the cause of your cold cough is known.
To track your illness, the doctor will further explore the course of your disease and will carry out a detailed respiratory function examination to determine the exact condition of your complaint. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as a sputum examination, blood tests, lung x-rays, or if necessary will refer you to an internal medicine doctor. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for you according to the underlying condition.
Things you can do to reduce your cough and cold complaints are:
Pour warm water in a basin, and inhale the warm water vapor to help expel mucus and relieve a runny nose
Avoid blowing your nose with hard pressure and avoid picking your nose to prevent injury
You can consume honey mixed with lemon to reduce throat irritation that causes you to cough
Enough your water intake, which is about 2 liters per day
Use a mask when you are exposed to dust, smoke, fragments of small objects, or when dealing with people who are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as coughing, runny nose, sneezing
Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, excessive caffeine consumption
Avoid foods that stimulate the throat such as spicy, oily, high MSG foods during coughs
Consume nutritious foods, multiply fruits and vegetables to help increase endurance
Get enough rest and sleep 7-8 hours a day, limit strenuous physical activity
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
