The symptoms of dengue fever that you should consider

Symptoms of Dengue Fever - Dengue fever or dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are acute febril disease found in tropical areas, with geographic distribution similar to malaria.

The disease is caused by one of the four serotypes of the virus from the genus Flavivirus, family Flaviviridae. Each serotype is different enough so that no cross-protection and epidemics caused by several serotypes (hiperendemisitas) can occur. Dengue fever is spread to humans by the mosquito Aedes aegypti.

Here are some of the symptoms of dengue fever:

1. Red Spot
Often at the beginning of fever, no red spots. There are also some cases that are no red spots.

2. High Heat
Heat could fall up, or may not fall at all during the day.

3. Shivering and bone ache
Feeling cold all over and there are certain points on the body's bone ache.

4. Dispose of black water and hard
This phenomenon is seen when platelets are running low

5. Platelets began to fall
Platelet levels may be known by blood tests in the laboratory.

6. Pain when eyes looked to the side
Some friends have this pain when glanced to the left and right side.

7. Neck pain
Sometimes, too, swelling in the neck and sore

If you are a high heat with prolonged (more than 1 day) and not cured by taking drugs, try to go to the nearest hospital and check your blood. If you find you're in platelets below normal limits (normal range: 150000-500000), be careful.

There are ways that can be taken without having to stay in the hospital, but need a strong will to do so. The way it is as follows:

1. Drink water min. 20 medium-sized glasses every day (more is better)

2. Try to lower the heat with hot-lowering medications (eg paracetamol)

3. Some friends and doctors recommend drinking additional ions such as "POCARI SWEAT"

4. Other beverages recommended: red guava juice to increase platelets (some are suggested: Angkak leaves, guava leaves, etc.)

5. Eat nutritious foods and try to eat in quantity that many (though usually of interest to eat would decrease drastically).

Actually, all the above efforts aim to increase body resistance against dengue fever, because it basically does not have dengue certain drugs (and indeed there is no cure for it). Resilience of the body can be seen from the number of leukocytes in the blood. When the leukocytes started to increase (improve), it is usually platelets, which then increases.

If you are able to no.1 of the above business without the slightest less, you do not have to go to the hospital for hospitalization (save it?)

If we are hospitalized, consider the drug presented, because there is no medicine that can cure dengue fever that (except for fever). Infusion is necessary, but do not ever want to be given antibiotics (unless there are other diseases). Tablets are usually given vitamins.

Notice also the results of laboratory every day. In fact, if the platelets had increased over the lower limit of normal (platelets graph does not go down again), had normal body heat back (36'C-37'C), blood pressure (tension) is normal, a sign that you've started to recover, and you've can ask the doctor for outpatient care only.

During the house, trying to drink water as much as possible to keep running. If you are worried and not sure able to outpatient care, keep living your hospitalization. (quoted from various sources)
