Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
Typhoid fever is known to be caused by an organism called Salmonella Typhi. It is one of the infection known to cause high fever. Any fever crossing 100 degrees needs to be considered as high fever and there is no rule that typhoid fever always has 102 degrees or more of fever.
Also, Typhoid is diagnosed by tests done on blood sample rater than recording of temperature alone.
What medications you are taking is right and it is important to complete the entire course even though the fever subsides.
Avoid physical exertion and take adequate rest. Keep yourself well hydrated. Consume bland diet at least for 3 weeks.
This would ensure complete recovery from your illness.
Hope the information provided clarifies most your quires.
Wish you good luck and speedy recovery.
