Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.It is always very doubtful and difficult to treat the typhoid patient on the basis of WIDAL test alone.Better diagnostic tests like blood culture or TYPHIDOT tests should be used to diagnose the typhoid tests.Get a blood culture done to rule out typhoid fever.Act accordingly once the blood culture report comes.Thanks and good luck.
