Hello Crisma, Thank you for the question.
Someone is said to have a fever if his body temperature reaches 38 C or more. Fever is a result of the body's defense system when fighting infections that enter the body. Fever that is accompanied by other symptoms that you mentioned can be caused by flu, sore throat, dengue fever, or typhus.
Dengue fever is a dengue virus infection that is transmitted through mosquito bites. Symptoms of dengue fever can include high fever, headache, pain behind the eyeball, joint and muscle pain, skin rashes, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite. Symptoms usually occur for 2-7 days. Only with the information that you submit can not be ascertained whether you experience symptoms of dengue fever, because these symptoms can also occur in other diseases mentioned above.
If you experience symptoms of high fever and have been going on for 3 days or more, it is recommended that you check with the nearest general practitioner so that the doctor can do a check on you before determining whether you need further blood tests or not and if necessary what blood tests you should live. Further treatment will be given by the doctor after knowing the cause.
In the meantime, please do the following:
get enough rest for 7-9 hours every day limit your physical activity multiply consumption of water at least 2 liters every day multiply consumption of nutritious food consumption of food in small portions but more often if you experience nausea and vomiting avoid consuming spicy, sour and oily foods according to paracetamol consumption according with the rules of use on drug packaging to cope with fever and headaches. Hope this information helps you.
