Hello Ensu, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a disease caused by a virus and transmitted through mosquito bites. in general, starting on day 3 or when the fever begins to fall, at the same time there is a decrease in platelets for the next 1-2 days.
In handling dengue fever, there is no kushus method that is done, where the principle of treatment is to overcome the symptoms and prevent the virus infection from getting worse. done include:
provide fluid intake or drink plenty of water, and if necessary given by infusion, to anticipate plasma leakage caused by viruses and prevent dehydration to prevent and monitor the occurrence of bleeding by bed rest to monitor vital signs such as blood pressure, pulse and temperature. and monitoring the amount of utin out. periodic laboratory blood monitoring to monitor the condition of the infection regarding the return of the patient, must be evaluated based on a direct examination of the patient, clinical static assessment of the patient and consideration of laboratory support. to find out more about it, it helps you consult with a doctor who treats and examines your child directly.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
