Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Widal Test (Slide Agglutination) in Indore


Frequently Asked Questions about Widal Test (Slide Agglutination) in Indore

Q. How is a widal test performed?

A doctor will clean the skin using an antiseptic alcohol cotton swab or wipe and take out a blood sample from your veins using a needle. The blood sample will be stored safely and transported to the lab for analysis.

Q. Is there any risk associated with a widal test?

There is usually no risk associated with this test. However, some people may feel a slight sting when a needle is pricked and may experience some bleeding that is normal and usually not bothersome. Rarely some people may also experience slight swelling or bruising at the site of the needle prick. Applying ice 3-4 times a day for about a week may help reduce swelling and bruising. If it does not get better, consult your doctor.

Q. How does typhoid spread?

Typhoid spreads by consuming food or water contaminated with Salmonella typhi. You can also get infected if someone infected with typhoid touches your food without washing their hands. People who drink contaminated water or eat food washed in contaminated water can develop typhoid fever. Some other ways via which typhoid fever can be contracted include using a toilet contaminated with bacteria, touching your mouth before washing your hands, eating seafood from a water source contaminated by infected body wastes, eating raw vegetables that have been fertilized with human waste, contaminated milk products, and engaging in oral or anal sex with a person who's a carrier of Salmonella typhi bacteria.

Q. How can I prevent typhoid fever?

Avoiding contaminated foods and drinks can help to prevent typhoid fever. While traveling to an infection-prone area, drink only bottled or boiled water, eat properly and hygienically cooked food, and avoid eating seafood or salads. Additionally, getting vaccinated against typhoid fever can also prevent it.

Q. How long will it take for me to recover from typhoid?

You will start feeling better within a few days, 3 to 5 days, of starting the treatment. However, without any treatment, it can take weeks or even months to fully recover, and the symptoms may return.
