    The symptoms you are having definitely fit into your suspicion of malaria +/- typhoid. Wonder how long ago you treated them and the drugs you used. Anyways, it would be ideal to run some lab tests beforr treating again. Kindly see your Dr for the tests and necessary treatment afterwards

    o.k. In treating typhoid with Ciprotab, you actually ought to take it for 10 to 14 days. That said, you still need to run a malaria parasite and Widal tests. Let a Dr see the test results and recommend appropriate treatment for you
