I have been suffering with cough and cold from several days. I met doctors and the cough was in control due to antibiotics given by her. But, 3 days ago, I felt a fever as well so my doctor suggested to do blood test and chest X-ray. I have been diagnosed with positive widal after test. The results are as below:
S. TYPHI ANTIGENS
Antigen O - AGGLUTINATION - 1: 160
Antigen H - AGGLUTINATION - 1: 160
S. PARATYPHI ANTIGENS
Antigen AH - NO AGGLUTINATION - NIL
Antigen BH - NO AGGLUTINATION - NIL
Now, my doctor has given me below medicines: MAHACEF - PLUS as antibiotics
NIMROS PLUS for fever
PENZOLIN - D CLEANCHEST-LS for cough
Anukof syrup for cough
I am confused if I should continue with the medicine or get hospitalized. Please advise if these medicines are sufficient enough for treatment as the cough problem is very severe.
you do not need to worry about reports, you do not need hospitalisation. Just continue the medicine and maintain diet restrictions as advised by your doctor.
Wish you speedy recovery.
