Good evening, thanks for the question
Leptospirosis is an infectious disease that attacks humans caused by Leptospira microorganisms. Rats are the main reservoir and leptospirosis is more common in the rainy season.
Symptoms of leptospirosis can be mild to fatal. In the mild type, leptospirosis can appear like influenza accompanied by headaches and muscle aches. Symptoms include fever accompanied by chills, headaches, anorexia, calf muscle aches, thighs and waist accompanied by tenderness. Other accompanying symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, sensitivity to light, or loss of consciousness.
On physical examination by a doctor can be found yellow / jaundice, calf tenderness, enlarged liver, skin rashes, signs of bleeding, and so forth. To help make the diagnosis can be done additional tests such as blood, urine, or serological tests.
Symptoms similar to lepospirosis include dengue fever, hepatitis A infection, or malaria. Therefore further examination is needed with a doctor to find out the exact cause of complaints that exist today.
Complaints accompanied by coughing can also be caused by acute infections in the upper respiratory tract. The infection manifests with symptoms of fever, cough, runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, weakness, no appetite, nausea and vomiting, and so forth. Acute airway infections can be caused by infection with germs, viruses, or allergic reactions.
Carry out further consultations with your doctor to be able to do an examination to find out the cause and appropriate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
