Dear Sir/ Madam,

Thank you for posting your query at healthcaremagic.com
Since it is prolong and recurrent, please do repeatedly blood analysis including culture and sensitivity for antibiotics.

Many cases, there are drug resistance typhoid. Even today ideal drug is standard one.

Keep the child well hydrated with plenty of fluids in the form of fresh fruit juices, simple light food in the form of porridge, milk, etc.
Since it is the disease of the gut (intestine) patient should be carefully monitored not to give heavy and spicy food.
Following this patient should be vaccinated with anti-typhoid vaccine.

With this child will develop immunity again typhoid and relapses.


Wishing your child a speedy reocery!
Your thank you note is appreciated! Looking forward.
With best wishes,
Dr. Vishwanath Patil

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?
