Fever That Has Not Subsided For More Than 5 Days?
Good night,. I have had fever for more than 5 days. The fever is accompanied by cough with phlegm, runny nose, dizziness, and sometimes nausea. I was treated 3 days ago and I was taking paracetamol until the medicines that were given were gone, but the fever was still not subsiding, even sometimes my body temperature suddenly jumped. If I get dbd, no red spots appear on the surface of the skin. So what disease do I have this?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever, cough with phlegm, runny nose, dizziness, and nausea are not always related to dengue fever (or often referred to as dengue hemorrhagic fever, DHF). Various complaints can also arise due to other causes, for example rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinus), tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the tonsils and throat), bronchitis (bronchitis), gastroenteritis (intestinal infection), gastric ulcer, typhoid fever (typhus), allergic urinary tract infections, and so on.
Very diverse possibilities for the cause of your complaint, making the diagnosis can not be established without direct examination. Therefore, if it is true that complaints have occurred more than 3 days, and do not improve after you go to the doctor, you should go back to the doctor or specialist in internal medicine, yes. Laboratory tests, X-rays, ultrasound, or other doctors can also do if deemed necessary to help determine the best management for your complaint to improve.
For now, you can first resolve your complaints through the following steps:
Rest more regularly, not too late at night Eat on time, don't procrastinate When you feel nauseous, do not eat spicy, sour, fatty, oily, and gas-rich foods Don't over-consume caffeinated drinks don't consume alcohol Keep yourself away from exposure to substances that are vulnerable to make you allergic, for example cold, dust mites, etc. Optimize your immune system, i.e. by exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, a balanced nutritional diet, and not smoking. eased Hope it helps huh ..
