Dengue is one of the most common kinds of debilitating mosquito-borne disease that happens because of the mosquito biting. It usually happens in tropical countries. The symptoms of the same include sudden rise in fever, vomiting, nausea, acute body pain, etc.
HOW IS DENGUE DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis is done by a general physician who will conduct a physical examination based on the symptoms as well as lab tests that will basically examine the blood and urine samples. These tests will help in showing the extent of the spread of the virus.
HOW IS DENGUE TREATED?
There is no specific treatment for classic dengue fever, and most people recover within two weeks. To help with recovery, healthcare experts recommend
• Getting plenty of bed rest
• Drinking lots of fluids
• Taking medicine to reduce fever
For severe dengue symptoms, including shock and coma, early and aggressive emergency treatment with fluid and electrolyte replacement can be lifesaving.
