Welcome to

You are having typhoid infection of the gastrointestinal tract. For that, it is advisable to take soft and bland diet more like banana, mashed potato, khichadi, etc. Avoid heavy fatty food intake. Take fruit juices more. You should take 7 to 10 days course of antibiotics to kill typhoid bacilli. Drink more water to maintain hydration. You can consult the physician for examination and get prescription of antibiotic like Cefixime for typhoid.
