Chikungunya Treatment In Pregnant Women?
, my friend is pregnant. I just got choked and the doctor on the lid hasn’t been opened yet. What medicine are you giving? Because of the pregnant position. Thanks
Hello Zeni, thanks for asking.
The first thing I need to confirm is, if your friend hasn't had time to see a doctor, how do you get a diagnosis of chikungunya? Chikungunya is a systemic infection caused by a virus. The virus is carried by the Aedes Aegypti and Aedes Albopictus mosquitoes, the same mosquitoes that carry the DHF virus. The symptoms are very similar to DHF and zika virus infections, namely:
Sudden high fever.
Headache or dizziness.
Joint and bone pain.
Red rash on the skin.
hence, a diagnosis of Chikungunya cannot be made solely by relying on symptoms. Your friend should consult with a doctor. Your doctor may need to analyze blood samples to help make a diagnosis. Please visit the nearest hospital to the emergency room, because the emergency room must be open 24 hours.
Like most other viral diseases, Chikungunya infection can actually heal itself in about a week. The main action is to increase immunity, including by:
Bed rest or bed rest.
Drink 2 L of water per day.
Ensure optimal nutrition. Eat lots of protein, vegetables and fruits.
Limit activities with a mobile phone so that breaks are not interrupted.
Sleep 6-8 hours a night.
If there is no drug allergy, you can try taking paracetamol according to the dose. Limit the use of paracetamol if the fever is truly disruptive.
Thus the information I can give. May be useful. Regards.
