Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your wife seems having urinary tract infection due to which she developed high grade fever and high count of pus cells in the urine.

The information you provided of reports is insufficient and depending on this information it is difficult to give advise.

What about the widal test report?

What are the results of the other reports ?

Your wife received antibiotics for urinary tract infection with oflaxacin and this antibiotic will work in Typhoid fever also.

NIFTAS-SR contains the drug nitrofurantoin which was kept as a prophylactic antibiotic to prevent the further urinary tract infections.

I advise you to meet a general physician for the interpretation of the results and for further advise.

Hope I have answered your query.
