The Cause Of Fever Accompanied By Red Spots On The Body But The Results Of A Negative DB Examination
I want to ask, I have a sudden fever with very high temperatures accompanied by red spots on the body, as well as other dbd symptoms similar to the pain that I experienced. The pain that I experienced was 4 days I decided to have a blood check but the results of the blood check showed that I was not dbd. Did I get dbd or not?
Hello Aditya, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Responding to the story you are telling, dengue hemorrhagic fever is an infection caused by the Dengue virus. Where the transmission occurs through mosquitoesAedes aegyptidanAedesalbopictus. This disease is commonly found in Indonesia because Indonesia is a tropical country so mosquitoes are easy to breed. The signs and symptoms of the infection are not as specific as most people know. Signs include:
High body temperature that can reach 40 degrees Celsius or more.
Pain in joints, muscles, and bones.
Loss of appetite.
Pain in the back of the eye.
Nausea and vomiting.
Swollen lymph nodes.
Reddish rash (appears about 2-5 days after fever).
Now for this reddish rash that is often mistaken for most people. The rash occurs due to leakage of blood vessels due to the dengue virus attacking platelets in the blood. The rash here is not like just a few red spots, they are numerous and difficult to count. But actually the complaint is very rare. Red spots in dengue fever are commonly referred to as ptekie.
Because the signs and symptoms are very difficult to distinguish from other diseases, doctors usually need a supporting examination through a complete blood test, and anti-dengue IgG & IgM is needed to diagnose a dengue fever infection. Based on the story you told, the doctor has done an examination and you were declared not affected by dengue fever. But if you still feel a fever complaint on days 5-7 of the first fever go back to consult a doctor.
Right now what you can do is:
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious food.
Inadequate your fluid needs, drink 2 - 2.5L of water per day so you are not dehydrated.
Take medicine from a doctor that has been given to you.
Evaluate your complaint, if there is worsening check your situation.
Avoid going outside the house because your immunity is currently down to minimize Covid-19 infection.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
