Good day,sir My wife is suffering with typhoid fever at 99-99.5 degree for the last 1 month.he is taking medicines, but no recovery. temprature does not go to 98.4 from 99-99.5. doctor has not given any tablet for temprature like crocin.he said fever is due to infection.pl advice.
As your wife is having fever for last one month it may be a fever of unknown origin (FUO) which should be thoroughly evaluated to find out the causes for the fever. As she is having for last one month all the relevant investigations should be done to rule out the cause of fever.
As your doctor has prescribed paracetamol to reduce the fever, this drug will act for 6 hours and it will control the fever for this duration but it cannot cure the condition. The source of infection should be found out by the investigations.
To confirm it has typhoid after having fever for last one month your wife should undergo stool and urine culture to confirm it. There are many conditions which can lead to fever of more than one month which should be evaluated thoroughly.
