Accurate diagnosis?: The question is how was typhoid diagnosed? If by culture, then maybe it is resistant to the antibiotic prescribed. Another possibility is that you're getting better slowly (a temperature chart would be helpful). If no culture was done or the culture was negative, then maybe it's not typhoid.
