Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Continue the medication as advised by your doctor for typhoid fever.
The loose motions may be due to antibiotic associated and can be treated by adding probiotic to his treatment.
Oral rehydrating solutions in sips to be given to prevent dehydration.
Appetite will be less during infection and it will improve once the infection being treated.
Hope I have answered your query, eventhough it is late.
