Pediatrician 's  Response

Hi Sonia,
Thank you for your query,
You consult a Pediatrician for the examination and interpretation of this reports.
Monitor your temperature chart daily and take paracetamol in prescribed dose when there is fever.
As the typhoid test is borderline, repeat the test after 1 week to see any increase in the test titres.
Some time empirical antimalarial medication is neccessary to control the fever in endemic areas even though the test for malaria is negative.
So consult your Pediatrician.
Hope I have answered your query.
