Hi.. Persistent infection needs to be treated with appropriate antibiotics.. A better choice of antibiotics guided by a culture and sensitivity test can help in treating any persistent infection.. Discuss with your doctor regarding these.. Continue with proper and healthy nutrition..

typhoid is caused by the typi bacilli. It spreads by the feco oral route. Hence i would advide you to continue on the antibiotics till the stool culture on two occasions come negative. Also a change in the antibiotic may be necessary if you are resistant to the current medicine. If the fever worsens i would advise you to call your emergency number immediately. Drink water which is purified, boiled and cooled. Wash your hand regularly. Avoid heavy foods and foods like meat till the symptoms subside. Have adequate water. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
