Hello dear, Typhoid comes with a wide range of symptoms, all of which may not be present in a single individual. Fever in typhoid does not remain constant, it keeps on increasing persistently like the steps of a ladder. Hence called step-ladder pyrexia. In case of other viral infections, fever may be either continuous or intermittent type. So, it will be better to consult your General Physician for a proper clinical examination. Symptomatic relief can be obtained with Paracetamol 500 mg (to be taken after meals) As your fever is persisting for approx a week, you need to get certain investigations like complete blood count, Urine examination, Widal test for typhoid, peripheral smear for malaria parasite & Dengue check. Wishing you a good health. Take care.
