Greetings and thank you for using HealthReplies.com services.
Dengue fever is a dengue virus infection that causes symptoms of fever, and also manifestations of bleeding such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums, reddish spots on the skin, gastrointestinal bleeding (bowel mixed with blood or black) and others.
To make the diagnosis of dengue fever, information on symptoms of fever and bleeding is needed, and also laboratory tests such as antibodies against dengue virus (IgG-IgM Anti-dengue), NS1 antigen, signs of blood coagulation such as increased hematocrit, decreased platelets, etc. -other. On the other hand, there are several diseases other than dengue fever that can cause a decrease in platelet values. Therefore, although it is often used to monitor the improvement of the condition of dengue patients, platelet numbers alone are not enough to enforce a dengue fever.
Platelet numbers in patients with dengue fever usually follow a certain pattern, where platelets will go down on fever day 3 to day 5, and will begin to improve in the following days. However, not all cases experience the same pattern, due to individual variations. In addition, because the lower limit of platelet values is 150 thousand, your current platelet value is still slightly below this limit, so you don't need to worry. All you need to pay attention and do now is:
Make sure your fluid needs are met. What is dangerous in the condition of dengue fever is shock due to the amount of fluid that comes out or seeps from blood vessels, causing circulation failure and can cause a decrease in consciousness until death. As long as the fluid needs are met, dengue fever will improve by itself. Watch for signs of bleeding that appear. Signs of bleeding can appear on the skin (reddish spots), clear bleeding such as nosebleeds or bleeding from the gums when brushing teeth, coughing out blood, or hidden, such as bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract, and others. Taking medication that is recommended by a doctor, is usually a symptomatic medicine, or to relieve symptoms, such as fever, cough, nausea, etc. Rest and maintain adequate nutrition to maintain body condition Routinely control the condition of the doctor who handles the signs dangers that you need to be aware of such as:
Prolonged fever (more than 1 week) Continuous headache Bleeding a lot Bleeding awareness of seizures Such information from me, hopefully can help.
