Hi Pradeep, typhoid fever runs a course of anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks, but can take many months for full recovery.

For a patient with typhoid fever but already released by the hospital, how long will it take for the recovery of the patient? We fear that the bacterium could be transmitted to other members of the family. Is there a need to isolate the patient? Thank you!

My daughter of 8 years has had typhoid fever for the last 14 days now. While her peak has reduced from 103.5 to 101.5 and the gap between the rise in fever has gone up from 4-6 hours to 6-8 hours, her fever has still not gone, despite giving her 10 ml X twice a day Zifi and once a day 5 ml. of Azithral for the last 5 days. Do advise future course of medical action and how long the fever might last. Also, how long might it take for her for full recovery and for her fever to come down to normal?
