If your husband has been allowed to go home from hospitalization after experiencing Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF), then most likely his condition has stabilized.
For prescription drugs that are difficult to find in your home area, please contact the pharmacy department of the hospital where your husband is being treated to get alternative medicines that can be purchased in your area of residence.
Cough accompanied by fever, is often not a sign of complications of DHF. It could be a cough and fever is an early sign of a cold or flu. The common cold is often referred to as a cold, which is a mild viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. The common cold goes away on its own within 1 to 2 weeks.
For a while, accompany your husband and do the following tips:
If your husband is very disturbed by fever, you can reduce fever by giving over-the-counter fever relievers such as over-the-counter paracetamol. If your husband can rest well even though he has a fever, there is no need to take any kind of medicine. Expand the consumption of fluids by drinking water and consuming soupy foods. You can consume warm ginger water to relieve cough. Rest at least 7 hours at night
Be aware of symptoms that indicate a dangerous medical condition such as severe nausea with heartburn, vomiting mixed with blood, nosebleeds with profuse bleeding, shortness of breath, abdominal swelling, and decreased consciousness.
If your husband's condition does not improve within 2 days, immediately consult a doctor to ensure that there are no medical complications related to the condition of DHF.
