Typhoid is an infectious disease that can be spread through contaminated water and food. Typhoid fever is caused by a bacteria called Salmonella Typhi which causes a life-threatening infection. What happens is that this bacteria, Salmonella typhi, reaches the stomach through food or water; after that, it multiplies and starts causing infection. In such a situation, within 3 to 5 days, all the symptoms start appearing in the body. Know what these symptoms are.

Early symptoms of typhoid:
