Management Of Dengue Fever In Children Aged 4 Years?

Hello Libye, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Dengue fever is a disease caused by Dengue virus infection. This virus can spread through the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. This viral infection is a self limiting infection, meaning that it can heal itself without requiring certain medications. However, in the course of his illness until healed, dengue sufferers can experience leakage of plasma fluid in blood vessels, so they can experience shock due to lack of fluid (shock here means the organs of the body do not get enough oxygen due to interference with blood flow). For this reason, although certain treatments are not needed, dengue patients must always be closely monitored until they have passed the critical period through laboratory examinations.
Therapy given to dengue fever patients is only in the form of supportive therapy, such as giving fluids through infusion to prevent shock, antidemam drugs to help reduce discomfort due to fever that occurs, as well as anti-emetic medication when severe vomiting occurs in patients. This disease will heal itself in less than 6 days, platelets will also go up by itself (usually after the 6th day), although symptoms of weakness can still persist longer.
Dengue fever vaccine is given to prevent dengue fever and is not given to treat dengue fever. For now, you can follow the instructions given by the doctor at the hospital. Give a lot of drinking for children, give food as they wish to eat, let the child sleep and rest more.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
