Thanks for your query.
As per reports you are having typhoid.
I suggest you to take medicines as prescribed.
Yes rest is important for recovery.
As you mentioned you travel a lot so I suggest you to take care of food while travelling.
Typhoid is spread through fecooral route so source is usually contaminated food and

Regarding your diet presently take plenty of fluids,fruit juices,vegetable soup,fruit and soft bland diet.

After you recover get yourself vaccinated after 2weeks .

Hope this helps.

God bless..

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
If I were your treating doctor for this case of Widal positive ( faint ) for typhoid fever I would come up this treatment and avoidance.
1 Since Widal in your case is faintly positive so in my opinion get in one more test for Widal from another , because this test varies from lab to lab.
If Widal shows 1:160 or above then take levofloxacin 750 mg / days for 10-14 days in the night + pantaprazole . Only these tablets are enough in my opinion .
2 If Widal is not positive then get in blood for E S R , if its value > 50 mm ist hour then consult one more physician and get his opinion (2nd).
Betnesole in my opinion is not good as it further lowers the immunity.
When typhoid positive I advise my patient don't take ice mixed products including ice cream & cold drinks.
So do properly as advise above. Good luck. Dr. HET
