Suggest treatment for symptoms of typhoid
Till yesterday fever was going up to 103-104 farenhiet in every 3 hrs after paracetamol. Today it is limited to 101 and within 4-5 hrs.
Are we going ok or need any further tests done..
It could be Typhoid.
As per your description, routine blood tests except for WBC are normal.
In Typhoid, Widal test will be positive after 1 week.In the first week,blood culture has to be done.Anyway,Cefuroxime 500mg is a very good antibiotic. Paracetamol can be given upto 4gms per day.
Blurred vision could be due to weakness.
Apply cold sponging regularly.
Please give him rest.
It could be viral fever , where are the routine tests will be normal.
If the fever doesn't come down even after 7 days of treatment, I will get blood tests for rare diseases like BRUCELLOSIS and LEPTOSPIROSIS.
Nothing to worry.It will come down.
Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
It's better to admit your son.
It's better to admit your son in a hospital and get him treated.
Now a days,I am giving Paracetamol 1gm infusion Intravenously four times a day.It has given excellent results.
Another common condition that has to be ruled out is Tuberculosis.
Once he is admitted, it will be easy to get investigated and appropriate treatment can be given promptly.
Wish him speedy recovery.
It's better to avoid Nimesulide.
It's better to avoid Nimuselide as cases of kidney damage were reported.
Complete Blood picture cannot confirm Tuberculosis.
As the fever is not coming down,please admit him in a hospital where good General Physician is available .
