Pediatrician 's  Response
Since your child has tested positive for typhoid ,she will require a good antibiotic cover.
However the ideal way of treating it would be to get blood culture and antibiotic sensitivity test done.
Instead of oral giving injectable antibiotic would be a better choice till the fever subsides and then oral antibiotics for additional 7days for complete cure and prevent recurrence.
The diet should be light ,less spicy and oily including fruits.Once the child is completely fine then give typhoid vaccine which would protect the child from recurrent typhoid fever for 3yrs.
Take care

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

In Typhoid fever in addition to an appropriate antibiotic supportive treatment is also important.

1.Give soft, bland diet

2.Avoid spicy, fried, junk, oily, and outside food

3.Give plenty of oral fluids to maintain hydration

4.Provide proper rest to the child.

5.Continue the medication as advised by your Pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query.
