Heartburn After DHF?

Hello, good night Marisi ...
Complaints of heartburn can be caused by various possible causes, including:
gastritis, or better known as an ulcer condition.
GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease), which is a condition of reflux / rise of stomach acid into the esophagus due to weakening of the muscular ring that limits the lower part of the esophagus with the upper part of the stomach
peptic ulcer, which is a wound in the stomach wall. This condition is usually caused by chronic ulcers, bacterial infections, or the consumption of certain drugs in the long run (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, potassium supplements, etc.)
inflammation of the pancreas, especially if the heartburn feels penetrated to the back, accompanied by vomiting, there is a change in skin color around the navel or waist, stiff stomach, and pain that increases after eating.
gallbladder disorders, which can be accompanied by fever, nausea, vomiting, discolored stool, and chest pain.
Dengue virus infection (Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever / DHF) can indeed cause symptoms of heartburn caused by the activity of the virus directly. In addition, a history of dengue infection can also indirectly cause complaints of heartburn. For example, due to a decrease in appetite due to being sick so you eat tends to be a little, which then causes an increase in stomach acid and a complaint of heartburn.
To help relieve complaints of heartburn, you can do the following suggestions:
eat regularly and on time
if your appetite is still not improving and there are complaints of nausea, eat smaller but frequent portions
avoid consuming sour, spicy, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks
avoid consuming foods that contain gas, such as cabbage vegetables, broccoli, foods that have a developer composition such as bread, instant noodles, and so on
consumption of antacid drugs (aluminum and magnesium hydroxide) to neutralize stomach acid. Take this medication 1-2 hours after eating and before going to bed
avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and herbal medicines or herbal supplements without supervision / instructions from the examining doctor
If the complaint does not improve, we recommend that you see a doctor, to ascertain the cause of the complaint and to get further treatment. Immediately check yourself to the doctor if: heartburn accompanied by vomiting, there are complaints of vomiting of blood, blood in the stool, heartburn accompanied by weakness, fainting, or difficulty breathing.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
