typhoid is only diagnosed only lately as it does not come in the tests
you need antibiotics for 3 weekto copletely get rid od typhoids
as you take antibiotics and analgesics there can be hyperacidity which causes acid reflux and throat pain
and u need to take liquid antacids plenty of fluids and triamsolone mouth paint locally for controlling throat pain

General & Family Physician Dr. Chobufo Ditah's  Response
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these symptoms and this diagnosis of typhoid. The symptoms of typhoid are not very conclusive and only the context and laboratory findings can help confirm the diagnosis. These drugs especially zenflox is the principal antibiotics used for this treatment. If a blood or stool culture were done, the antibiotic that is best adapted to this would be very helpful.

However, if with this treatment, if things are not getting any better, then you may want to contact your treating doctor for a review of treatment. if a blood culture was not done, the let him consider doing so and also investigating into other causes f chronic fevers.

I hope you find this helpful. Thank you so much for using our services and feel free to request for more information if need be. I wish you the best of health.
