Can Children With Dengue Fever Take A Bath?
Excuse me, my 4 year old sister has symptoms of DB, her fever has gone down, but red spots appear. Is it serious? And can you bathe it? Thank you
Hello Mnaufalafi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
If it is true that your sister has symptoms of dengue fever (confirmed by a blood test and also a doctor's examination), then the cause of your sister's fever is 2, if it occurs between day 3 to day 5 of fever, then this is a critical period of dengue fever so that a fever that falls is not a sign that your sister has recovered but in a critical period that is very prone to experience worsening if not handled properly. Plus the patches that appear on the skin of your sister can only describe the bleeding that occurs in the body of your sister.
Therefore, the best recommendation is to immediately bring your younger sibling to the nearest hospital emergency room for further examination whether your younger sibling requires hospitalization at the hospital or not based on his current condition.
For the problem of bathing alone, your sister is still allowed to take a shower but by using warm water (not cold water or water that is too hot), and it is recommended to take a shower in a not too long time.
I hope this helps.
