What is the complete treatment of typhoid?

Treatment of typhoid is complete, when the patient is no more the carrier of typhoid fever. It was a common problem in olden days when chloramphenicol was used to treat the typhoid fever. Chloramphenicol is a bacteriostatic drug. With the advent of bactericidal drugs, you have less number of carriers of typhoid fever. You have to do repeated culture of stool sample to rule out the carrier stage. Some times the typhoid bacteria is hidden in gall bladder and then you may have to remove the gall bladder. Such precautions are practically never taken in developing countries.
