A 10-year-old Sister, Being Treated, Has Improved But It Was Suddenly Like A Seizure?
My brother’s doctor was treated for about 3 days, the first day he said he got typhus and then the night was still hot said the sister had been affected by Dengue fever because indeed in my village too many who had dengue fever, after that my brother’s condition gradually improved body and appetite was normal , but suddenly he was like a seizure, body dinggin u0026amp; my eyes were closed, the sister shouted, she said critically, but thank God, it has improved again, the situation is like that, why did the nurse say later if there was a high fever, it means the virus was like that, I wasn’t too hear because I was scared, please explain and give advice
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Dengue fever is a disease caused by dengue virus and transmitted by Aedes aegepty mosquitoes. The disease is characterized by a fever whose pattern is like a saddle of the horse, which is fever in the first 1-3 days, followed by a fever that falls or seems to improve on days 4-6 (which is also called the critical phase), and the fever will rise again on the day 7-9 which is called the healing phase.
We suspect that this is what the Sister wanted to try to explain at the time, that what your sister experienced was a critical phase. Called the critical phase because in this phase, even though the patient seems to be 'cured' which is marked by a fever that is down or even normal, the patient is in periods of the highest risk of leakage in his arteries and resulting in bleeding that is often not realized. This may be the beginning of the symptoms of seizures and so on experienced by your sister. The majority of deaths in dengue fever sufferers do exist at this critical phase.
Of course, not all dengue sufferers will go through a critical phase with such symptoms. For those whose immune system is good and very controlled, the critical phase can be passed well without any complaints. His body temperature will rise again and enter the healing phase. His health will gradually improve, his appetite will increase, and his complaints will decrease and his platelets or blood clots will rise. However, it needs to be understood that it is not certain that what we are conveying is really what the health worker wants to convey to your sister. Then it would be better if you reconfirm the knowledge that you can from us by re-asking the sisters or doctors in charge. It's your right to know.
The dengue fever has nothing to do with typhus, and its role in your younger brother's condition can only be answered again by the doctor who examined him directly, whether he really had typhus and dengue at the same time, or typhus recovered and followed by dengue fever, or the initial diagnosis that says that your brother has typhus is wrong and in fact what he is experiencing is dengue fever.
The point that you and other family members can do now is keep encouraging your sister so that her psychic also helps her body to heal, pay attention to her needs, and help the medical staff to monitor your sister's clinical condition. If there is an emergency or condition that you are worried about, don't hesitate to call the nurse or ask the doctor on duty. So, hopefully answering your question.
