Hello Mrs. Annisa! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Dengue fever causes symptoms of high fever at the beginning. Then, the fever will go down, but at the time of the fever dropping can be a critical period for the child. The mother can notice the child who remains limp and difficult to wake up even when the fever drops. Children who are difficult to wake up are a sign of decreased consciousness in children. The mother can also feel her hands and feet become cold. You should immediately take your child to the nearest hospital emergency room for immediate examination and treatment. The doctor will immediately conduct a direct examination of your child and perform blood tests. If your child looks very weak or if the condition is severe enough according to the doctor, your child may need to be hospitalized. Dengue fever can be quite dangerous at this time. Good handling can save the life of your child. However, the possibility of other diseases cannot be ruled out. You need to bring your child to be examined. When your child wakes up, make sure he is getting enough to drink.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
