Thanks for posting your query.
Typhoid fever may last for 10 to 14 days. Body temperature typically rises in the evening and drops in the morning. symptoms improves with antibiotic use and full course of treatment should be taken to ensure complete eradication of bacteria.Complete bed rest is essential.You should take a liquid diet of orange, barley juice and milk. Orange juice, especially, hastens recovery as it increases energy, promotes body immunity and increases urinary output.Gradually start a well-balanced diet.
Hope you will get well soon.
Take Care!
