Brief Answer:
Normalin recoveirng typhoid

Detailed Answer:
This can happen in recovering Typhoid.

Apart from this other thing is lower heart rate also.

You need not worry, unless the kid is having low urine output or breathlessness or conconsciousness.

I would like to know if blood culture was done before starting medicines.

This is normal in recovering typhoid - I say again. Regards - Dr. Sumanth

Brief Answer:
Non spicy vegetarian diet is perfect

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX any non spicy vegetarian diet is good at this juncture. Better avoid nonveg till another 2 weeks.
Am happy that blood culture was done before starting antibiotics.
Return of hunger and appetite is a recovery sign in typhoid.
Another piece of advice is that - give him typhoid vaccine (if not given in the past 3 years) after 28 days of completion of treatment.
