Get investigated

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting the query

If the fever has not come down since 4 days then i suggest you to get investigated. You should get CBC, Urine routine, WIDAL, and Dengue NS1 tested.



Any issue do follow up

Take care.

I got my CBC and URINE test done along with some other tests. Fever get reduces at times but for abt half a day remains near 99. So I take Dolo 650 mg. I am doubtful whether I should continue with Allegra M because it caused me extreme breahtlesness.

Please review my attached reports.My Nasal congenstion is there and is of white color. I am taking steam and other ginger etc home remedies. I dont get coughing sense but when gargle, I see it is white color.

Please advise if I still need to get WIDAL, Dengue test done.
Also please advise what food/drinks I should avoid and take.

Brief Answer:
No need of WIDAL now

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Instead of DOLO have HIFENAC P tablet 3 times a day. For nasal congestion take Tab. Ebast DC. Discontinue Allegra tablet.



Now no need of WIDAL.
Wait for 3 more days, if still the symptoms remain same then you can repeat the CBC.

Take care.

Thanks for reply. Hifenac P -- is it a antibiotic or normal painkiller and paracetamol?
My body pain is not much . Got minor on shoulder. I should be able to manage without painkiller. I just checked my fever it is 98.9. Also nasal congestion is better and mucus color is my transparent. Please advise if you still want to take hifenac P and Ebast DC medicine?

Hi XXXXXXX

I'm sorry for the delayed reply Hifenac P is not an antibiotic. It is a antipyretic. I hope your fever is relieved now.

My daughter is febrile for 4 days already. She had laboratory tests giving low WBC count and normal platelet count. The following day, WIDAL test and repeat CBC was done. The WBC count lowered and also the platelet count, and positive for typhoid fever as evidenced by the WIdal test. She was guven Cifixime to be taken 2x a day and was able to take the first dose. Then all of a sudeen she had nose bleeding when the temperature has already lowered. It is somehow confusing if it is Dengue fever or typhoid fever

I had tested Widal positive two weeks back. I had taken a second Widal test a week back and the readings are TO - 1/20; TH - 1/640; AH - 1/20 and BH - 1/80. The med specialist said that it was normal. I had taken a week long course of antibiotics before this test. I don t have any fever but do have gastric problems and a bit of constipation . Do I have typhoid? What precautions do I need to take? The Dr had told me that I don t need any medication and that I could eat anything and exercise as well. Is it OK to do so? Also, can I consume alcohol? Pl advise.
