Treatment Given To Dengue Fever?
8 months ago I was exposed to DHF / DHF where at that time I had a lot of drops, decreased immune system, felt dizzy, muscle aches, and body temperature increased and finally I decided to be taken to the hospital and had a blood test and I was positive for DHF. 1 week I was on the hospital while I was being treated I was often shivering hot, every time I was exposed to hot cold water and the nurse was always given paracetamol to reduce fever. What I want to ask is there are no complications for DHF? and there is no effect of the DHF drug? Thanks. Please answer
Hello Afil, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
DHF (Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever) or also known as DBD (dengue hemorrhagic fever) is a disease caused by the dengue virus which is spread through mosquito bites. This disease is a self-limiting disease which means that it can heal itself without requiring special treatment. The treatment given in cases of DHF is a supportive treatment, namely treatment to treat the symptoms that appear, for example giving fluids to prevent fluid deficiency and shock, administering fever-reducing drugs such as Paracetamol, and administering nausea drugs in the event of severe nausea and vomiting. eat.
DHF itself can heal in approximately 1-2 weeks, although sometimes symptoms such as fatigue and weakness can last longer. During the first week of the course of this disease, various serious complications can occur, such as bleeding, shock, swelling of the liver to liver failure, swelling of the brain. However, after the course of the disease, DHF rarely causes long-term complications. Drugs given as symptomatic therapy for fever such as paracetamol will not cause certain long-term complications (after 8 months) if they are taken according to the dosage (the safe dosage range for paracetamol is very wide, so paracetamol overdoses are rare).
If you are currently experiencing certain symptoms of illness, you should consult your doctor directly so that they can be examined and given appropriate treatment.
