Dengue Fever Prevention?
Dengue hemorrhagic fever or DHF is an infectious disease caused by the dengue virus which is carried by mosquitoes. This disease has the main symptoms of fever, signs of bleeding, abdominal pain, etc. In a condition that is severe enough, dengue can cause shock due to loss of body fluids which, if not treated quickly, can cause death. Factors that can increase a person's risk of experiencing dengue are:
Living environment that has poor sanitation Dirty environment Not protected from mosquito bites, for example using anti-mosquito lotion, etc.
In DHF, due to the loss of body fluids due to a reduced number of pieces of blood in the body, the precautions that can be taken so that this disease is not life threatening are:
Drink lots of water Consumption of paracetamol to reduce fever Increase nutritious food Consumption of vitamin C, which can be obtained from fruits such as guava
Fever for 5 days can be caused by DHF but it is also possible that it can also be caused by other infectious diseases such as typoid fever, hepatitis, etc. If your complaint is felt to be more worrying, it's a good idea to visit a doctor to get the right treatment.
