Hello Widhiya,


Dengue hemorrhagic fever / DHF caused by dengue virus infection spread by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Symptoms include high fever, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, decreased nafsy, muscle aches, joint pain, pain behind the eyes, enlarged lymph nodes, redness, and bleeding (eg nosebleeds, vomiting blood, bleeding gums) . These symptoms can last for 7-10 days. Fever may subside on days 3-5 but it is actually a critical phase because dangerous shock conditions can arise. Fever can rise again and then gradually symptoms improve in a few days.


The diagnosis of DHF is through interviews, physical examinations, and supporting examinations, for example by blood tests to assess the patient's hematocrit and platelet levels as well as examinations to look for anti-dengue. DHF treatment is with fluid replacement and medication to reduce symptoms, such as fever-lowering. If needed fluids are given intravenously. Follow up is needed if there is a worsening of the patient's condition.


The doctor will monitor the patient's condition every day and decide when the patient is allowed to go home based on lab results and the patient's general condition. When the recovery period, symptoms will improve gradually but usually the body feels more refreshed.


If at this time you feel a great headache or your body temperature is rising again, I suggest that you consult with your doctor again so that further evaluation can be done to ensure the condition of your body and subsequent treatment, yes.


For now while waiting for the doctor's control, you can do the following tips:

Drink a lot of water
Eat healthy and nutritious food
Get enough rest
Warm compresses
If there is a medicine that is brought home, take the medicine according to the advice of the treating doctor

Hope it helps you,


Thank you
