Up And Down Fever Accompanied By Red Rashes On The Entire Body And Headaches?
Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, doctor. Let me introduce Sari as 19 years old. I want to ask about the symptoms that I feel. So, like this, I had a fever for one night with symptoms of a red rash on my entire body, headache, pain in the eyes, weakness, nausea, and joints in my legs and arms. But the next day my fever went down, but the symptoms that I told him I still felt felt even worse. I checked my platelets and thank God it’s normal. Then the puskesmas told me to go home and wait 2 or 3 days if I had a fever again so I could check the platelets again to find out if I had DHF or not. According to the doctor, the symptoms that I feel are DBD? Information please. Thank you for your attention
