is used to diagnose typhoid fever
and its useful only in 2nd week of illness.
Typhoid is an infectious disease caused by a bacteria. Its acquired through infected water/ food.
As your pediatrician
said, widal test shows she has typhoid.
Usually if treated with monocef
, duration of treatment is 10 days.
If switched over to other oral antibiotics
, duration of treatment is 14 days.
Fever may come down by 4 to 5 days and her well being will slowly improve. But you have to complete the full course of antibiotics for 10 to 14 days, to avoid complications.
Hope you find my answer helpful.
