Dengue Pain Accompanied By Stomach Pain And Shortness Of Breath.?
Sok mahon permission to ask this, my brother has been affected by DHF for 6 days and has checked positive for DHF after being taken to the hospital, the doctor recommends that he be told to go for an outpatient treatment.
DHF / dengue hemorrhagic fever is a disease caused by the dengue virus and spread by the Aedes mosquito. Symptoms include fever can reach 40 degrees Celsius, vomiting, joint pain, muscle aches, abdominal pain, weakness, there is bleeding such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums, blood vomiting, swollen lymph nodes, and red rashes. The fever phase can resemble a horseshoe where the fever will improve on days 3-6 and the fever can again until the 7th day. In this phase of fever down is actually a critical time in DHF patients because if the patient's condition is not well monitored the patient may experience deficiency caiarn and experience dangerous shock.
Abdominal pain can be related to liver enlargement in DHF patients while shortness of breath needs to be thought about the presence of fluid in the pleural cavity. This fluid comes from plasma leakage that occurs in DHF patients. Severe abdominal pain and shortness of breath in DHF patients must be immediately ascertained and treated.
Therefore, I suggest that your brother immediately return to the emergency room or to a doctor of internal medicine (pediatrician if your sibling is still a child) so that observations can be made on his current condition and can be given more optimal treatment. Handling will be adjusted to the conditions of your relatives, for example by giving fluids through infusion and fever-lowering. Periodic blood observations and tests will also be carried out until the patient's condition improves.
However, if shortness of breath and abdominal pain are caused by other things that are not related to DHF (for example digestive disorders, asthma, respiratory infections), then treatment will also be given according to the causes of abdominal pain and shortness of breath. Try not to delay control to the doctor or the emergency room if you experience complaints that are increasingly burdensome.
Hope it helps you,
