Thanks for using this forum....

Pyrexia because of salmonella is good possibility,maybe you should shift to a higher cephalosporin the fourth generation and note the decrease in titre...Long term pyrexia becomes challenging and I guess you should seek some physician to have a thorough checkup and investigations..Do you have evening fever or intermittent fever?

take care...
