Early Signs Of Dengue Fever?
, my body is hot, yesterday was examined by a doctor, the initial suspicion was dbd, but I checked it in the clinic so it hasn’t been tested for blood. When examined at the clinic, my hand was raised in tension and the doctor told me to hold for 2 minutes because the tension would not be removed first, if there were red spots, it meant dbd, but when tried there were no red spots, I was given medicine, after eating my hot medicine went down but after a few hours later it went up again, I had a nosebleed, coughing and if my head cough was dizzy I was very sick, the dizziness was very painful, runny nose, and sometimes like shivering. That’s dbd right? If the heat goes up and down? The thing is my parents said there was no need to check blood at the hospital because the heat went down and my parents said maybe it was just a cold. But I was afraid, if I was not examined, I feared dbd and I was late to the hospital. Please answer
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Fever is one of the body's responses that occurs when there is an infection in the body. Complaints of fever are generally accompanied by other complaints such as coughing, runny nose, headaches, muscle aches, diarrhea / constipation, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, skin rashes, and others. Some infectious diseases can cause complaints of fever such as flu, sinusitis, typhus, dengue fever / dengue hemorrhagic fever, pneumonia, and others.
Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a severe form of dengue virus infection characterized by damage / leakage of blood vessels accompanied by a decrease in platelet levels. Milder infection is known as Dengue fever. Someone who has dengue fever will experience a high fever reaching 40 degrees Celsius, headaches, pain behind the eyeball, muscle and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, redness of the skin, and decreased appetite. To ascertain the cause of your fever complaints, of course, further testing is needed by a doctor. Your complaint may be caused by a respiratory infection, flu, or sinusitis because you have a cold. If fever complaints persist for the next 2 days, please return to your doctor. The doctor will re-examine you. If necessary, the doctor will recommend a blood test to find out more about the cause before determining further treatment.
Also do the following suggestions:
get enough rest
multiply the consumption of nutritious foods
multiply water consumption. Consuming warm drinks can relieve breathing
consumption of paracetamol or pain medication given by doctors to treat fever and headaches
