Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever Critical Phase?

Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
DHF or dengue hemorrhagic fever is a disease caused by dengue virus infection. This disease has 3 phases; the fever phase, the critical phase, and the healing phase. In the febrile phase, the most prominent symptom is a very high fever. This phase lasts for approximately 2-7 days (average 3-4 days). After that, when it starts to enter a critical phase, the fever will start to fall. In the critical phase, plasma fluid leaks from the blood vessels into the tissues. On laboratory tests, a decrease in platelets can be found accompanied by an increase in hematocrit. In this critical phase, severe and dangerous symptoms can also occur, such as:
accumulation of fluid in organs such as ascites (fluid in the abdominal cavity) or pleural effusion (fluid in the space between the lining of the lungs) enlargement of the liver (liver) severe vomiting spontaneous bleeding (eg, red spots on the skin, nosebleeds, or bleeding gums) anxiety and decreased awareness of signs of hypovolemic shock After passing the critical phase (24-48 hours), a person will enter a healing phase where the symptoms begin to improve as well as laboratory values.
If you have a fever that is persistently high for 3 days without a clear focus of infection (no respiratory infection, gastrointestinal tract infection, ear infection), it is better to see a doctor so that further tests can be carried out including laboratory tests.
If you have a fever, make sure you drink more fluids because when you have a fever, your body will excrete more fluids (through your skin and not through pee, so you won't feel it). To reduce fever, you can also take fever medications such as paracetamol.
