Dengue Fever - Causes, Treatment, and Management

MD
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Dengue fever is a painful infection transmitted by the bite of one of the 4 closely related viruses that are carried by a type of mosquitoes known as Aedes mosquitoes. The infection is not directly from one person to another.

Symptoms: After the mosquito bite, symptoms set in about 4 to 6 days and can last up to 10 days (as noted below). Most are general symptoms which can be seen with any viral infection and therefore most dengue cases can go undetected.

Sudden high temperatures
Pain behind the eyes
Severe headaches
Swollen lymph nodes
Severe bone and muscle pains (this can lead to suspicion of dengue)
Fatigue
Nausea and vomiting
Skin rash that appears 3 to 5 days after the onset of fever
There could be in some cases gum bleeding, easy bruising, or nose bleeding

The dengue triad of symptoms is fever, headache and the skin rash. This could lead to suspicion and blood tests that can lead to diagnosis.

The acute phase lasts for about 2 weeks in most cases and there is no antibiotic (it is a viral infection) cure for it. The treatment is therefore symptomatic, aimed at reducing fever and pains.

If left untreated, especially in children, a severe case called as Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) can occur, which affects children under 10 years of age and can cause failure of the circulatory system. This can also occur when a person is developing dengue for the second time. This is a serious form and can even lead to death; therefore the symptoms should be taken seriously and attended to immediately.

Diagnosis: Confirmation of dengue is through a blood test, where the virus is tested for.

Treatment: Being a viral infection, antibiotics are not effective against dengue. Pain killers with acetaminophen are preferred. Aspirin is avoided, as it can worsen bleeding. Complete bed rest, hydration and good nutrition are essential parts of the treatment. Being under medical supervision also helps watch out for complications. There is a vaccine under development that could become available in the next couple of years.

Prevention:

Always use mosquito repellents, even indoors
While being outdoors, use clothes that cover the arms and legs fully
Use a mosquito net if your area is highly infested with mosquitoes
Ensure the windows and doors are closed during the evening
If you are suspicious of having dengue, reach out to the doctor
Reduce chances for mosquitoes breeding by keeping the house clean
If there are family members with dengue, protect yourself and them from mosquitoes

Preventing dengue is the best way to manage it; however, if once infected, the person develops immunity to it. Reduced immunity can put the person at risk of developing the condition again.

Failing to do Foreplay can ruin mood or leave you unsatisfied. Sex without foreplay means you’re not taking your needs into consideration, because foreplay is much more important to women than to men. Foreplay is a set of emotionally and physically intimate acts between couple meant to create sexual arousal and desire for sexual activity. Vagina secretes natural lubricating solution which is secreted by bartholin's gland. Foreplay also helps in secreting natural lubricant which will improve sex life.

It is still not clear if the irregularity of periods is due to prolactin, thyroid should be normal and there should not be any polycystic ovaries on scan, plus body weight should be normal. Having ruled out all these one looks at prolactin specifically to be the cause and that too if the levels are more than 100ng/ml.

First of all you need diagnosis of the underlying problem. Symptoms are indicative of PCOS. Thus either we have to rule out PCOS or have to cure it. If you have faith in Homeopathy following medication will help you: Sabal Ser Q 20 drops twice daily in some water Pulsatilla Q 2 drops thrice daily in some water Viburnum Opulus Q 2 drops thrice daily in some water Also from Ayurveda you can use Sudh Guggul tablets 2 tab twice a day with cow milk under supervision of homeopathic consultant only.

Your husband will need a few tests doing to find out the cause of azoospermia. If there are sperms beinf produced in the testes but not reaching the semen and any obstruction is identified then it can be surgically corrected or a ivf considered. Even if there are very few sperms then also icsi can be considered. If there are no sperms being produced at all then donor sperm and ivf has to be considered.

In majority of primigravida engagement occurs between 38-40 weeks or even during first stage of labour. If you have not any complication in pregnancy then the course of pregnancy should be completed that is up to 39-40 weeks and should wait for normal labour.

All About Nipple Discharge

MD-Gynaecologist & Obstetrician , MBBS

Ask Free Question
Nipple discharge is a common part of breast functioning, which normally occurs during breast-feeding or pregnancy. It is often associated with the changes of menstrual hormone. The milky discharge post breast-feeding usually continues for up to two years after stopping nursing. The condition normally gets resolved on its own but if the situation persists for a long time resort to medical assistance.

The following are some of the causes of normal nipple discharge:
- stimulation: normal nipple discharge can arise due to stimulation; chafing of your breast skin due to tight bras or vigorous exercises.
- pregnancy: most women tend to witness clear nipple discharge in the early stages of their pregnancy. Towards the later stages, this discharge usually turns watery and becomes milky in color
- stopped breast-feeding: in some cases, nipple discharge continues for some time after the mother has stopped breast-feeding her newborn
- hormonal imbalance: some women notice tenderness in breasts and nipple discharge during their menstrual cycle

What is an abnormal nipple discharge?
An abnormal nipple discharge is usually bloody in color and is accompanied with tenderness of the breast. Papilloma is a non-cancerous tumor that is often responsible for bloody nipple discharge. Continuous nipple discharge from one of the breasts or nipple discharge that arises without any stimulation or external irritation is abnormal in nature.

The possible causes of abnormal nipple discharge include:

1. Abscess- it is an assortment of pus that get accumulated within the tissues of your body. It is usually accompanied by redness, pain and swelling. Boils and carbuncles are types of abscess. Formation of abscess in breasts may result in nipple discharge.

2. Breast cancer- breast cancer often results in bloody nipple discharge and is often found with a presence of lump in one of the breasts.

3. Mastitis- it is a breast infection that affects the tissues of the breast and is usually prominent during breastfeeding. Fatigue, fever and body aches are common in this situation.

4. Ductal carcinoma in situ (dcis)- normally characterized by the growth of cancerous cells in the milk ducts of your breasts, it is generally identified through mammography screening.

5. Fibroadenoma- in this situation most young women witness an appearance of solid, tumor like structure

6. Galactorrhea: galactorrhea is nipple discharge of milk when not pregnant or breastfeeding. The discharge can vary in color and can be expressed from either or both breasts.

What causes galactorrhea?
Galactorrhea is commonly caused by hyperprolactinemia, especially when it is associated with amenorrhea. Hyperprolactinemia is most often induced by medication or associated with pituitary adenomas or other sellar or suprasellar lesions.

The release of prolactin from the pituitary is held in check by dopamine from the hypothalamus. Prolactin release is encouraged by serotonin and thyrotropin-releasing hormone. This balance can be disrupted by medication (ie. Antipsychotics), underactive thyroid function, pituitary tumors, hypothalamic tumors, damage to the pituitary stalk, nipple stimulation, chest trauma, herpes zoster, and emotional stress as well as a variety of other factors.

Hello- yes irregular menses and weight gain is due to pcod. According to ayurveda there is a fat (meda dhatu) and blood (rakta dhatu) symbiosis in the body, whenever the patient indulge in practices like irregular and unhealthy diet (fast food etc.) and irregular daily schedule (late night workout, sleeping in day time etc.) this symbiosis gets disturbed and body start making fat in excess thus minimizing the production of blood in proper quantity and quality. This is the reason why diseases like thyroid and pcod, menopausal female etc. Develops weight gain with reduced blood levels. In your case only weight loss treatment will not be beneficial for you, or you have to look out for both the aspects. Don't go for allopathic treatment for pcod (metformin etc.) as it will further increase your weight and will create a hormonal imbalance in your body. Follow this ayurvedic routine and treatment to cure both weight gain and pcod- a) tab kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice daily. B) tab hyponid 1 tab thrice daily. C) do basti treatment by nearby ayurvedic doctor (it is a very effective treatment in ayurveda for pcod). D) maintain proper eating routine, avoid fast foods and spicy diet.

Relax. Eat healthy foods and yogurt. Wear cotton under wear and take care of hygiene. Whitish vaginal discharge might be just normal also. If you are smarminess, then take some iron with vitamins.
