Hello,

1 in 80 is not much significant to say typhoid fever, even previous exposure also may cause above results. Probably, this time you may be suffering from lower respiratory tract infection.

So, avoid cool drinks and freeze water. Use water vapor inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved, please consult your physician so that he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
