Fever (body heat), chills, accompanied by dizziness that fluctuates up to 1 week should not be considered trivial. In some conditions, these complaints often indicate an infection that needs to be treated further by a doctor, such as by administering medication or even further observation through hospitalization. Usually, to identify the cause of this complaint, the doctor will not only conduct interviews and regular physical examinations, but also involve several supporting tests, such as laboratory tests, and so on. Early examination to the doctor can make the disease that your husband suffered earlier. So, check with your husband directly to the doctor or the closest specialist in internal medicine.
Here are some conditions that you should watch out for causing your husband's complaints:
Typhoid fever (typhus)
Typhoid fever is caused by Salmonella typhi bacterial infection that is transmitted from the patient to another person via the oral fecal route, which is due to consuming food or drink contaminated with the patient's feces. This disease, in addition to fever and dizziness, also often makes sufferers feel weak, nausea, decreased appetite, experience skin rashes, bowel disorders, muscle and joint pain, and various other complaints. The diagnosis of this disease can be made mainly by laboratory tests, for example by using blood samples, feces, or other tests.
Dengue fever (dengue fever)
Dengue fever occurs due to Dengue virus infection that enters the human body through the intermediaries of Aedes mosquito bites, especially Aedes aegypti. Not only fever and dizziness, dengue fever sufferers can also experience quite severe headaches (especially in the forehead and back of the eye area), muscle and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, weakness, fatigue, signs of bleeding (for example nosebleeds, bleeding gums, reddish skin rashes, bruises), and so on. In severe conditions, this disease can also lead to shock (shock) that needs to be treated IMMEDIATELY by the doctor.
Malaria is a disease caused by the parasitic infection of Plasmodium. This parasite is spread by the bite of female Anopheles mosquitoes, which are mostly found mainly in eastern Indonesia, such as Papua, NTT, Maluku, and Bengkulu. Symptoms that arise due to this disease can vary depending on the type of parasite. However, in general, sufferers will experience fever, excessive sweating, chills, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, diarrhea, muscle and joint pain, and so on.
Other viral or bacterial infections, such as ARI (acute respiratory infection), kidney infections, digestive infections, meningitis, chikungunya, leptospirosis, hepatitis, parotitis, heart infections
Other causes, such as drug side effects, fatigue, exposure to extreme environmental temperatures, drug withdrawal syndrome, excessive alcohol consumption, psychosomatic disorders, thyroid gland disorders, etc.
At this time, besides checking your husband to the doctor, you can first do the initial handling steps as follows:
Give your husband the paracetamol medication so that his fever and dizziness subside
Also give her clothes that are comfortable and warm
Give him lots to drink water, warm water will generally be more comfortable to consume to help reduce chills
Remind your husband to get plenty of rest, if necessary, bedrest
Give your husband enough and nutritious food so that his immune system and stamina are maintained
Avoid giving drugs carelessly (except over-the-counter drugs and drugs that are prescribed directly by a doctor)
Hope this helps ...
