Hi Nadhien

Thank you for your question

Dengue fever is a fever caused by infection with the dengue virus that is transmitted to humans through mosquitoes, where this disease makes the patient's body temperature very high and is generally accompanied by headaches, joint, muscle and bone pain, and pain behind the eyes. The severity of the dengue virus infection itself will be different. Starting from dengue fever that is not accompanied by bleeding symptoms and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is a complication of worsening dengue fever. Symptoms of dengue fever are severe, where there is damage to blood vessels and lymph nodes, vomiting accompanied by blood, bleeding from the gums and nose, shortness of breath, and swelling of the liver that causes pain around the abdomen. It can even cause bowel movements with blood as your child is experiencing. This bleeding occurs due to a decrease in the number of platelets in the blood due to infection, so that blood clotting becomes disrupted. In a stable condition, where the platelet count has started to normalize and your child's general condition has stabilized, usually it will be allowed to go home.

Regarding bowel movements with blood that occur when your child is at home, there are several things that may cause this condition:

Platelet levels decrease again, resulting in bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract which then appears when your child defecates. Lower gastrointestinal bleeding due to other causes. Bacterial infection of the gastrointestinal tract (dysentery). The presence of hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids). Injury to the anus and surrounding areas due to difficult bowel movements (lack of fibrous food and having to strain when defecating). If this complaint persists, I suggest you to re-examine your child at the nearest doctor. Make sure your child is drinking enough water. Then make sure that your child does not have difficulty defecating because they consume less fibrous foods. If your child has diarrhea that is accompanied by blood, it is likely that your child has dysentery and needs to be treated with antibiotics.

Make sure you check your child back to the doctor.

Hope this answer helps you.
