The Right Treatment For Yellow Fever?
What is the cure for yellow fever, and can it be without a prescription?
Hello, Layar, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Yellow fever or yellow fever is an infection caused by a virus and transmitted by mosquito bites. Yellow fever causes the sufferer to have fever, muscle pain, no appetite, nausea / vomiting, dizziness. After that, if not recovered, the sufferer can experience a toxic phase characterized by yellowish skin and eyes, abdominal pain, spontaneous bleeding (nosebleeds, bleeding gums, etc.), vomiting blood, decreased kidney function, decreased liver function, and decreased consciousness.
Symptoms of yellow fever resemble those of common fever, such as dengue fever, malaria, typhoid, or hepatitis. For this reason, if someone has a fever that does not go down with the administration of common fever drugs (paracetamol, ibuprofen), or is accompanied by symptoms of nausea, vomiting, jaundice, weakness, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, not eating, fainting / decreased consciousness, severe headache, disruption of bowel movements, so you should immediately consult a doctor to find out the exact cause.
Yellow fever does not have a specific drug, recovery from yellow fever depends on the patient's own immune system. In the treatment of yellow fever, the therapy is only supportive or relieves symptoms and prevents worsening, for example, fever is given to reduce fever, vomiting / nausea is given anti-nausea, if blood pressure drops then it needs to be intravenous fluids, if kidney failure must dialysis, and if anemia (less red blood cells) due to bleeding, transfusion / additional blood is needed. To find out whether a person needs certain therapy (for example, fluid infusion, dialysis, transfusion), complete data is needed and must be carried out in person first. We recommend that you check with your doctor to prevent worsening and to get the right therapy. Prevent transmission by keeping yourself from mosquito bites.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
