High Fever And Mouth Taste Bitter When Eating After Hospitalization Due To DHF?
, my father was positive for DHF and had been treated for 6 days in the hospital but after exiting the hospital still felt high heat from inside the body and instead the mouth became bitter to eat. Is this a bad symptom to be referred to the hospital again or is the healing process huh? Thanks.
Thank you for the question.
DHF (Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever) depends on the severity and endurance of the sufferer's body, can recover in a short time (1-2 weeks), but can also be slow, even potentially deadly. Frequently, if your father has gone to the doctor and underwent treatment at the hospital and then allowed to go home (not forced to go home), meaning that the doctor considers no more danger signs to worry about and treatment can continue at home.
The high fever and bitter mouth that your father is still experiencing may be caused by many factors, for example viral or other bacterial infections, dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), inflammation of the intestine, side effects of drugs, immune disorders, psychological disorders, and so on. If indeed you measure your father's temperature rises more than 37.5 degrees celsius (using a thermometer), you should first give him the drug paracetamol and do some of the following suggestions so that his complaints improve:
Let your dad rest a lot
Give him lots to drink, especially water, at least 8 glasses per day
Feed him a little but often, first limit oily foods, coconut milk, high in gas, spicy, and too high in fiber
Remind your father to brush his teeth regularly and rinse with salt solution
Do not carelessly give your father medicine, except as recommended by the doctor
However, if the fever does not improve after the doctor's treatment runs out, you can check back to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that further treatment according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
