Typhoid is an infection caused by the bacterium Salmonella typhimurium (S. Typhi).
The bacterium lives in the intestines and bloodstream of humans. It spreads between individuals by direct contact with the feces of an infected person.
The two major symptoms of typhoid are fever and rash. Typhoid fever is particularly high, gradually increasing over several days up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit or 39 to 40 degrees Celsius.
The rash, which does not affect every patient, consists of rose-colored spots, particularly on the neck and abdomen.
Other symptoms can include:
- abdominal pain
Typhoid is caused by the bacteria S. Typhi and spread through food, drinks, and drinking water that are contaminated with the infected fecal matter. Washing fruit and vegetables can spread it if contaminated water is used.
