Thanks for query,
Have you gone for S,widal test?as there is respiratory infection if S. widal is positive then go for typhoid treatment.
Go for blood TC,DC,to rule out res. infection.
In typhoid give liquid diet as there is intestinal infection give diet which is easyly digestible.
Give milk diet,fruit juices,rice,curd,butter milk.
Ok and bye.

Hi Sumira,
Typhoid usually affects GI tract and menifest as Diarrhoea, constipation, fever, rash, headache, nausea vomiting rarely affects respiratory system it may be co existing infection. In typhoid you can give normal diet only if liver function is altered fatty food should be restricted, give protein rich food in frequent meals. give milk, avoid fat rich diet for some days,
Take care
