Red Spots After The Treatment Of Dengue Fever?
In the morning, the doctor wanted to ask, what was the completion of the red spots?
Good afternoon, thanks in advance for asking HealthReplies.com.
DHF is a dengue hemorrhagic fever disease caused by dengue virus, which is spread through the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Symptoms that can be experienced include:
- high fever up to 40 degrees Celsius or more
- pain in the joints, muscles, bones.
- pain in the back of the eye
- nauseous vomit
- decreased appetite
- swollen lymph nodes
- red rash (usually appears about 2-5 days after a fever).
There are 2 types of fever due to dengue virus, namely dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue fever, for dengue fever is usually more severe symptoms with damage and leakage of blood vessels and reduce platelet levels or blood platelets, so usually in these patients bleeding can occur such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums , or bruises under the skin that indicate bleeding under the skin. But in dengue fever the symptoms are milder, symptoms begin to appear around 4-7 days after a mosquito bite (incubation period) and usually lasts about 10 days.
In dengue hemorrhagic fever there are phases of the disease, namely:
- phase of fever: the presence of high fever around 5-7 days, with other symptoms such as pain behind the eyes, dizziness, nausea, vomiting. In this phase there is a decrease in platelet count so that it needs to be monitored closely.
- critical phase / plasma leakage phase: in this phase the body temperature goes down but it is actually a dangerous phase, because of the possibility that plasma leakage can not be detected and bleeding can occur. this phase can occur around 3-7 days since the fever and can last about 24-48 hours. in this phase there is a need for close monitoring of body fluid intake (try not to be inadequate and not excessive).
- healing phase: after passing through the critical phase, this phase occurs around 48-72 hours. in this phase the body fluid that had previously leaked starts to re-enter the blood vessels, so it is important to maintain fluid requirements so as not excessive.
If you experience this disease and symptoms of reddish rash after that can be a sign of small bleeding under the skin, we recommend that you recommend control to the doctor who previously treated you. So the doctor can check whether your previous illness has completely healed and the rash is now a symptom of another disease, or if this is a continued symptom and you still need supervision in the recovery period.
Thus the information we can convey, thank you and hopefully useful.
