Typhoid and paratyphoid are both types of bacterial infections caused by Salmonella. These infections are most common in areas with poor sanitation and hygiene, and are often contracted through contaminated food and water.

Symptoms of typhoid and paratyphoid include fever, headache, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Without treatment, these infections can lead to serious complications such as intestinal perforation and sepsis.

Prevention of typhoid and paratyphoid includes practicing good hygiene, avoiding consuming contaminated food and water, and getting vaccinated. Treatment includes antibiotics and supportive care.

It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you may have typhoid or paratyphoid, as early treatment can help prevent complications and spread of the infection.
