Suggestive of Paratyphoid fever

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

Thanks for asking to Healthcaremagic

The report suggest that you have paratyphoid fever(which is similar to enteric fever) caused by S.paratyphi A subtype bacteria.

Need more information to help you better

1)Do you have any history of abdominal pain or bowel irregularities in the past 2 weeks ?

2)Do you have any skin lesions like red coloured pigmented spots over trunk etc?

Please reply back so that I can be able to confirm the diagnosis and suggest regarding treatment.

Awaiting your reply..

Brief Answer:
It's Paratyphoid fever

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

Thanks for writing back with needed information.

Your clinical symptoms,history and lab reports are consistent with the diagnosis of Paratyphoid fever.

If I am your treating doctor, would suggest an antibiotic course for 7 days,either as Tab.azithromycin 500mg once a day or Tab.ciprofloxacin 500mg twice a day which help get rid of the infection.

Since the above medications are prescription drugs ,visit your primary care physician to get the same.

Hope I have answered your query.

Feel free to ask if any clarification needed be.

Take care
