Typhus or typhoid fever is a disease caused by a bacterial infection of Salmonella typhii. This disease is transmitted from the consumption of food or drinks that are not hygienic and contain these bacteria. Typhoid fever is usually characterized by high fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea / vomiting, feeling weak, aches, headaches, sore throat, constipation, loss of appetite, and dirty tongue. To diagnose typhoid fever, the doctor will usually do a physical examination, and supporting examinations such as a Widal or Tubex-tf blood check that shows the bacterial antigen of Salmonella typhii. However, this test will usually show positive results when the fever has entered the 6th day
Besides typhoid fever, there are several other possible diseases that you suffer from, namely:
Common cold. Dengue fever. Hepatitis A. Therefore, you should visit a doctor so that the doctor can evaluate your complaints further, conduct a physical examination, and conduct investigations such as blood lab checks, Widal tests when fever has entered the 6th day, and anti-hepatitis tests so that the doctor can provide the right medication handling.
Here are the things you can do to reduce complaints and speed up the healing phase:

Wear a mask when traveling, and use a tissue or handkerchief when coughing or sneezing. Inadequate intake of nutritious nutrients and drink 2-3L of water per day.
