The Galveston County Health District is seeing an increase in the number of reported murine typhus cases within the County.
Because typhus is flea-borne, residents should avoid contact with infected fleas. Symptoms usually begin one to two weeks after exposure and may include fever, headache and a rash. Typhus may also cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and coughing. With early treatment, patients typically experience a less severe illness and shorter recovery time. More information can be found on the Galveston County Health District website.
