Sorry to ask about the characteristics of chikungunya disease or dengue fever, how do you explain it, please describe it nMy legs suddenly bruise ache, why are there lots of mosquitoes here?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Chikungunya and dengue fever are diseases caused by viruses, which are transmitted to both humans through the bite of the Aedes aegepty mosquito. Both of these diseases also have clinical appearance in the form of symptoms that are similar and difficult to distinguish, even for medical personnel, in the form of:
Fever Joint pain Muscle aches Chills or chills Headache Sore throat Rash or red spots appear all over the body Nausea and vomiting Fatigue
Even if any of these symptoms can be distinguished, it is in the form of joint pain and headaches in chikungunya that are more severe than in dengue fever. But of course, pain is a subjective matter, and in fact, it cannot be used as a rule. So the possibility is to use supporting examinations such as a complete blood test. But on the other hand, the treatment of these two diseases is more or less no different, where the doctor's job is to make sure the patient meets fluid needs and cope with the symptoms that are felt until the body gets better by itself.
In your case, a bruised and sore leg is not a specific symptom for either of these conditions, especially if you don't have a fever. Our advice, check with your doctor to find the cause of your condition through adequate history and physical examination. Meanwhile, avoid mosquitoes by installing mosquito nets, using topical or spray insect repellent, and pay attention to the cleanliness of the surrounding environment by closing the water reservoir, and draining the bathtub. To relieve pain, you can take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the instructions for use listed. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
