Typhoid Prevention and Treatment

Monsoon brings a lot of fun, vegetation and cool weather. However, it also invites many health disorders. Dealing with such diseases associated with the rainy season is not very difficult. You should consider certain quick remedies if you face such diseases due to the rainy season.

Typhoid Prevention and Treatment


The disease is caused by the salmonella typhi bacteria and is highly infectious. The bacterium is present in human feces, and a healthy person can fall prey to the disease by consuming contaminated food and water (this is known as the fecal-oral route). Some patients carry the gallbladder infection even after the disease is cured. The pathogen is excreted and flies act as carriers / vectors, contaminating food and water.

Common Symptoms of typhoid fever can include:

* A high temperature that can reach up to 39-40 C (103-104 F)

* Muscle pains

* Stomach ache
