Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
There are several conditions or diseases that can cause the symptoms as you mentioned, including:
Chickenpox (Varicella), is a disease caused by varicella zoster virus infection, which can cause bumps that contain fluid throughout the body, fever, dizziness, pain throughout the body, itching, and others. This condition can heal by itself for several weeks, but it is very vulnerable to be transmitted to other people who have never been exposed to this disease before. Measles (morbilli), is a disease caused by measles virus infection, which can affect both children and adults who have never been affected before. Symptoms can include reddish spots on the skin, fever, sore throat, and others. Dengue hemorrhagic fever, a disease caused by dengue virus, which causes fever symptoms, and often accompanied by bleeding symptoms, such as reddish spots on the skin, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, gastrointestinal bleeding (in bowel movements or vomiting), etc. I advise you to check your father to a general practitioner or internist, so that a more complete examination can be made to establish the diagnosis, and given appropriate treatment. For now, all you can do is:
Consumption of fever medication (paracetamol) with the dosage as stated on the package Warm compresses (on the forehead, armpits or other body folds) Rest (reduce physical activity) Make sure your nutritional and fluid needs are met. In itching bumps, try not to scratch, so as not to cause scars when heals later, and does not cause secondary infections of the skin. Keep your father temporarily with people (including adults and young children) who have never been exposed to the same disease. The danger signs you need to pay attention to are: fever that does not improve for 3-5 days, spontaneous bleeding (nosebleeds, gums bleeding, black bowel movements, vomiting mixed with blood, etc.), convulsions, and decreased consciousness. If you experience these symptoms, consult your nearest health facility immediately.
Thus, hopefully can help
