Pediatrician 's  Response
good evening, the medicines are started on correct line, the body pains and tiredness due to typhoid fever will last for 10 to 12 days. so currently she requires supportive care in the form of rest hydration with ORS, high protein diet and paracetamol to reduce fevre. if the fever is not reducing even on 3rd day , get a malaria test , retest for typhoid and get a blood culture done , and repeat a platelet count. thank you.
