Query regarding Typhoid
Hi. My friend Had 101 Fever around 29 Dec 2021 and symptoms were of covid. Was on azithromycin 500mg and crocin for 3 days. Fever subsided but uneasiness and headache remained. However covid test was negative and situation wasn't great. So got tested for typhoid. Had 1:320 result for Salmonella Typhi H on 1st Jan 2022 accompanied by fever. Hence took cefixime for 5 days and crocin SOS. Fever subsided. Now on 10th Jan got retest done but again SALMONELLA TYPHI H came 1:320. Even Typhidot test showed active antigens TYPHIDOT-IGM So, I am Not sure of further course of treatment. Should he continue the medicines? Or needs to take some other medicine. I am attaching the reports below of both 1st January,2022 as well as 10th Jan,2022. Kindly reply
