Heat-lowering Medication That Is Recommended For Dengue Fever Sufferers?
Hello doctor, I’m asking. What is a recommended fever-reducing medication for dengue sufferers?
First, make sure that it's true that you or your family have dengue fever at this time. Have you seen a doctor? If the doctor says you have dengue, then depending on your general condition and your platelet count, the doctor can recommend hospitalization or outpatient care. Generally if the general condition is good, there is no difficulty eating or drinking, there is no bleeding (under the skin, gums, nosebleeds, or other bleeding), platelet counts are not below 100,000 / ml of blood, then some doctors will advise people with DHF to undergo treatment in home.
If indeed you or your family are currently diagnosed with DHF and are in a stable condition, then the doctor should have prescribed a fever-lowering medication from the hospital or clinic. If the fever-lowering drug has been used up, you can try taking paracetamol or ibuprofen, but it should be in the recommended dosage. Stop taking drugs if there are allergic reactions, such as hives, red skin, itching, swollen lips and eyes, difficulty breathing, dizziness or fainting, or blisters appear on the skin. If it turns out you or your family have not seen a doctor, check first. Make sure first whether the fever is caused by dengue or by other causes.
Don't forget to drink 2 L water per day to help reduce fever. Do not use clothes that are too thick because it will prevent the expenditure of body heat. Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
