Detailed Answer:
Hi

Greetings from Dr Divakara P
Thanks for posting your query.

Typhoid is not a big major disease . It is a bacterial infection which if treated with proper antibiotic shall become alright is few days .

I hope you have been started on an antibiotic course. The choice of antibiotic varies from doctor to doctor as per his experience . In my practice I use Cefixime+Ofloxacin for the treatment which has given good results.

In addition you need to drink hot water, maintain good hygiene, avoid non veg food and oily food.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask.

Regards.

Avoid non veg food, avoid food from hotel , eat home made food, even fruits juice made outside should not be taken , home made fruit juice can be taken.

Avoid curds and buttermilk also. Drink hot water.

Follow the diet for 2 weeks .
