I have read your query with diligence. It seems like you are being treated wrongly. If I were your treating doctor, I would consider this as viral fever and manage you symptomatically with Paracetamol.

What I mean to say is Dolo and Cetrizine medicines are good for you. However, there was no need for Gramocef-o 200DT in you.

Your blood picture also shows that you probably have a viral fever with the platelets being slightly on the lower side.

Your test for salmonella typhi 'o' at 1:160 and "H" at 1:80 is still fine. You do not need treatment for this.

Please check your platelet count again now to be sure that all is well.

I hope this helps you. Please do not take any other medications.
