Typhoid
The first signs
of typhoid.

The rains come with hordes of bacteria and viruses, thanks to higher levels of contamination in water and food. It's the time when eating out should be restricted to a minimum especially food and drink of the street variety. It's also the time when the bacillus Typhoid attacks even milk products, precipitating a fatal attack of typhoid.

Symptoms ::
High fever, sometimes lasting up to 4 weeks. Headache, constipation, abdominal pain, delirium and stupor, even come in extreme cases.

Treatment ::
Appropriate antibiotics. Good nutrition.

Recommendation ::
A clear liquid diet. Patients should be isolated. Preventing a relapse is important, which is why they should convalese till they're completely normal. Infants, the elderly and malnourished people are especially susceptible. Follow your doctor's advice.

Prevention ::
Good hygiene is very critical. Drink only purified water. Maintain personal hygiene. Avoid eating raw leafy vegetables and food stored at room temperature. Avoid visiting typhoid-strucken area but if you must, take a preventive vaccine prior to your visit. Consult your doctor.
