Brief Answer:
Positive for malaria and typhoid

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to health care magic.

I have gone through your reports attached with your query and based on that you are positive for malaria by Plasmodium vivax and also for typhoid fever.

I suggest you get in touch with your GP and get a prescription for a quinolone antibiotic or third generation cephalosporin for 7-10 days.

You can take over the counter painkillers which will also help reduce the fever.

Diet should include liquids or easily digestible carbohydrate-rich diet.

Vegetable soup and fruit juice is useful.

For vivax malaria, you should get a prescription for Tab Chloroquine for two days and Tab Primaquine for two weeks.

Please discuss the above mentioned treatment options with your treating doctor and decide the best option.

Bed rest for a week is recommended.

I wish you a speedy recovery.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks.

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.
