When should I call my doctor?

If you develop any of the symptoms of typhoid fever or your condition does not improve, contact your doctor immediately. He or she can evaluate you to determine if you are infected. If you are traveling outside the U.S. and develop any of the symptoms of typhoid fever, contact that country’s U.S. consulate for a list of recommended doctors.
