Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for asking your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that Widal test has come positive but the titre is not that significant to start medicine as false positive rates are very high . It needs to be repeated to see rise in titre .

Her ESR is high that means some chronic infection or disease process is going on .I would advise you to consult a physician . If a person has low grade fever and raised ESR diseases like Tuberculosis , take a paracetamol tablet 500 mg if fever occurs and seek medical advise as soon as possible .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
