Hello I have gone through your complaints. Hair fall is not related to the medicines most probably. Here we have to think why your child is getting affected by typhoid so often? You need to maintain proper hygienic status with sterile water for consumption. Your child needs to get vaccinated against typhoid every 3 yrs. typhoid test i.e Widal is considered positive if the titres are more than 1:160 dilutions
