Dear Lybrate user please repeat your widal test if increasing trends of antigen titres, then it suggests persistence of infection and antibiotics are required to be taken for a few more days you can consult me for more queries/ medications online by clicking on my photo and booking an appointment however, if you found my answer helpful do leave a thanks/ positive feedback as it helps me with my practice.
