    hello,Typhoid fever is contracted by drinking or eating the bacteria in contaminated food or water. People with acute illness can contaminate the surrounding water supply through stool, which contains a high concentration of the bacteria.treatment is with antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin,augmentin etc.then prevention is by maintaining proper food,hand and water hygiene.i will advice u treat malaria again ds time with an ACT e.g p-alaxin or coartem along with the antibiotics mentioned above.
