As less than 2% died from typhus, it is obvious that it is possible to define the disease timely and get rid of the nasty infection. The doctor will conduct several tests to identify the source of illness. Those are skin biopsy, Western blot, different blood exams, and immunofluorescence examination. First, the physician takes a sample of body’s surface. Then, fluorescent dyes might be useful to find the bacteria. Finally, simple blood test assists in stating the diagnosis properly.
