Treatment For Typhus?
Tonight, I want to ask .. r n r nI am typhus but currently recovering. During typhus I took ciprofloxacin … I was feeling better, although sometimes I still felt chills and weakness. When I was under control again, I was given the drug cefadroxil. Is it better if I run out of ciprofloxacin just stop and don’t need to drink the cefadroxil or just keep taking it? Please advice .. r n r nThank you
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Typhus or typhoid fever is an infection of the digestive tract caused by the bacteria Salmonella typhii. These bacteria can be transmitted from sufferers to other people through contaminated food or drink. Typhus sufferers have symptoms of diarrhea or constipation, fever, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, decreased appetite, headaches, and weakness. To diagnose typhus, your doctor needs to know your complaints, examine you, and do a blood test on you. If it is proven that typhus from a blood test, the sufferer will be treated with antibiotics for a certain period of time. Treatment is said to be successful if the patient has experienced improvement in symptoms.
Regarding the need to return to taking antibiotics, I am sorry that I cannot give an opinion on this matter. To determine the need to return to taking antibiotics, the doctor needs to come back to know your complaint and examine you. The doctor may also need to do repeat blood tests before deciding to give this antibiotic. If you have any doubts, you can return to consult your previous doctor or check with another doctor to ask for a second opinion regarding this antibiotic administration.
Please keep your food intake, avoid consumption of food and drinks that are not kept clean. Avoid consumption of spicy and oily foods, consumption of caffeinated, fizzy and alcoholic beverages. Get enough fluid for your body by consuming water. Get plenty of rest until your condition recovers.
Hope this information is useful.
