Red Spots Itch After A Fever?
Alodoc. Two days ago my husband was hot until 39 u0026deg; Other complaints are aching pains and nausea. Already see a doctor too. But on day 3, the temperature has dropped. Red spots and itching occur. Then I invite to the lab to check blood. The result: Hemoglobin 18.4 g / dlHematrocytes 50% Leukocyte 4,800 / ulTrombocyte 192,000 / ulThe question is whether you should check with your doctor again or can be treated at home? The current condition can enter food, no fever, itching in the neck and body and still aching pains. Thank you
Hello Yusti, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of red spots or rashes accompanied by itching after a few days of high fever is generally caused by several conditions, such as:
mild viral infection (erythema infectosumum) which can heal itself allergic to bacterial infections / scarlett fever which is characterized by an infection in the throat and accompanied by a rash on the body Rubella or German measles Varicella or chickenpox Generally, infections caused by viruses will cause a fever that tend to be high and accompanied by aches or rheumatic pain in the joints of the body. But, certain bacterial infections can also cause the same complaints, so it's not specific in nature. If confirmed with the results of the lab where leukocytes as immune agents tend to be normal or tend to be low, which is usually an infection that occurs is indeed related to the virus.
Viral infection actually has no cure, drugs that can improve the condition are immunity from the immune system itself. So basically repairs will happen by themselves over time. And what needs to be done is to build endurance so that it can recover and be better at preventing continued viral infections, so that the body will gradually heal by itself. So what needs to be done so that the body's immunity becomes good again is by:
adequate rest with enough time to sleep at least 6 to 8 hours per day consumption of nutritiously balanced food every day, and do not forget vegetables and fruits consumption of foods high in protein will also help in the body repair cells damaged by infection, so that recovery will be more quickly balance with physical exercise, such as by exercising lightly but not making the body sick like walking in the morning, biking at a sunny time, or light jogging taking additional supplements can help your body recover faster, because sometimes there are some vitamins that cannot be fulfilled adequately by consuming only vegetables and fruit If there is no improvement in at least 3 days, then we recommend consulting a doctor directly in order to get the appropriate treatment. Thus the explanation from us, hopefully helps.
