Are Red Spots On The Skin A Sign Of Typhus Or Dengue?
Good evening my doctor wants to ask, I have a fever (hot cold), cough, runny nose, headache, from Saturday, but after taking the medicine so the body becomes flooded with sweat. to typhus or dengue or not? thanks in advance.
Hello, Nurul Nur Azizah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Red spots on the body can be caused by various causes, for example: viral infections (dengue fever, measles, herpes, etc.), blood vessel disorders, blood clotting disorders, etc. To determine the cause, need more complete data about the course of the disease, physical examination, and supporting examinations. Investigations that may be needed for example a complete blood test.
So, to determine what disease you are suffering from, the process that I have mentioned above must be carried out. If there is still a fever, weakness, more red spots, there is sudden bleeding (without injury) such as bleeding gums, nosebleeds, tightness, abdominal pain, headache, you should immediately see a doctor to be treated accordingly. Keep consuming enough fluids, nutritious food, and enough rest to boost your immune system.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
