Specializes in Infectious Disease

Typhoid fever: That depends upon the sensitivity of the strain of Salmonella typhi present in your community. Ampicillin or amoxicillin might be good, as well as azithromycin, but this needs to be discussed with the doctor treating you and will depend upon the lab results.
