Cough In Patients With Dengue Fever?
In the afternoon I want to ask, how can cough occurs in DHF sufferers
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
DHF (Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever), or more commonly referred to as Dengue fever is caused by Dengue virus infection. This virus is often transmitted to humans through the bite of Aedes mosquitoes, especially Aedes aegypti. This disease has a high incidence in tropical countries, including Indonesia, especially during the transition season.
Clinically, dengue fever will cause sufferers to experience a variety of complaints, such as:
Fever is suddenly high, then falls on days 3 to 5, then rises again (saddleback fever)
Flu-like symptoms, such as coughing, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat
Headache, pain behind the eyeball, muscle aches and other joints
Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite
Deficiency of bowel movements, diarrhea or constipation
Limp, easily tired
Bleeding disorders, such as reddish skin rashes, bruises, bleeding gums, nosebleeds, coughing or vomiting of blood, bloody bowel movements, bloody urine, excessive menstruation --- occurs when entering the DHF phase
Heart palpitations, rapid breathing, weak pulse, cold sweat, dark vision, decreased consciousness --- occur when entering the DSS phase (dengue shock syndrome), and so on
Dengue fever, like other diseases caused by viral infections, can cause sufferers to experience flu-like symptoms (flu-like symptoms), including coughing. It is not clear how this mechanism occurs. However, some literature states that this condition occurs due to the ability of the virus itself to cause inflammation of the respiratory tract, as happens in people with the flu. It could also, because of a decrease in platelet levels in the blood, this cough will appear accompanied by bloody sputum.
Diagnosis and treatment of dengue fever cases should be done directly by a doctor or specialist in internal medicine. With earlier diagnosis and treatment, the risk of serious, even life-threatening complications can be minimized.
Hope this helps ...
