Hello and welcome,
Thanks for your query.
Since your Salmonella Typhi
O has returned positive, your diagnosis is Typhoid also called Enteric fever
The treatment regimen for typhoid includes:
-Use of an antibiotics
-Rehydration therapy with hospitalization (in dehydrated patients)
Patients with typhoid fever
should be kept in contact isolation during the acute phase, which I am guessing you are. Kindly ensure proper disposal of your urine and feces.
-Kindly avoid handling/preparing of food during this phase
-Also please ensure good hygiene and wash your hands regularly with a good antiseptic/antibacterial soap
The treatment your doctor has advised is more than sufficient to rid you of your infection. You will get better soon. You should take more care and follow the above mentioned pointers to avoid infecting others with the same infection.
It does not spread through touch or any such myth, as long as you are clean, everybody is safe.
I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.
