I eat, my head is a little dizzy, my eyes turn yellow, but my nails + skin don’t turn yellow … after that I checked with the doctor ,! The doctor said this is intestinal inflammation ……. r nIs the yellow eyes due to intestinal inflammation or is it a symptom of jaundice … r nPlease explain … r nThanks **** **
Thank you for the question.
Typhus or typhus or typhoid is an infection caused by Salmonella typhoid bacteria. Transmission through food and drink consumed. Symptoms:
diarrhea or constipation
loss of appetite
If typhus sufferers are not treated or treated late, they will be at risk for complications. Complications caused by typhus include:
black or dark stool
out of breath
unbearable abdominal pain
Yellowing of both the body and eyes in typhoid patients is very rare. Do not rule out other causes of yellowing both in the body and eyes that you experience, such as:
Hepatitis A. Hepatitis or inflammation of the liver is often caused by the hepatitis virus. The hepatitis virus associated with foodborne transmission is hepatitis A.
Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is transmitted due to contact with the body fluids of a person with hepatitis B. This disease is transmitted through sexual contact, blood transfusion, and mother-to-baby transmission.
Inflammation of the gallbladder or cholecystitis. The symptoms are yellowish, there is upper right abdominal pain, fever, and nausea, sometimes vomiting.
Gallstones or cholestasis.
We recommend that you consult an Internal Medicine Specialist to find out the exact cause of the yellowness you are experiencing.
The suggestions that I can give:
get enough rest
eat undercooked or thoroughly cooked food
do not consume raw food even vegetables
drinking bottled mineral water
washing hands with soap before and after defecating, eating, and preparing food
eat foods that are known for their hygiene.
Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
