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.

Yes as long as it is regular it should not be a problem. Still ensure that you are not anaemic and your body weight is normal.

If your periods are regular better to check urine pregnancy test once and consult doctor as early as possible.

Hello, considering the fact that you have been diagnosed with blocked tubes on hysterosalpingography (hsg), so I believe and the fact that you suffer from painful menses or dysmenorrhoea, there is all likelihood that you may be suffering from severe endometriosis which is causing the tubes to be adhesed and hence blocked. There is a requirement for confirmation of diagnosis with a diagnostic laparoscopy which happens to be the gold standard for endometriosis diagnosis. Further treatment can be streamlined if endometriosis is diagnosed. Also important would be to get a mantoux test done to rule out any pelvic tuberculosis.

I and my partner are above 60 years of age. My partner not allows me to discharge in the vagina due to risk of pregnancy. Due to this I do not get full satisfaction in the game. I would like to know whether is there any risk at this age. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user. Usually around the age of 50, women get menopause and there reproduction ability stops. In that case, your sexual intercourse and ejaculation of sperm within your partners vagina never will cause pregnancy. Take care.

Breast increasing tips and exercise pls.
No medicine or exercise can increase breast size. Breast implant is most effective and common procedure to increase size of breast. In this procedure silicon implant of desised size is pushed under breast tissue. Procedure is done under anaesthesia so there is no question of pain. Patient can go home in 3 to 4hrs. You just need to wear supporting bra for some time and can return to work next day. Externally the look and feel of breast is just like natural young breast. Within few hrs you will regain your confidence and have attractive chest figure. In future pregnancy there is no problem in breast feeding. There is no risk of any major illness or disease associated with this procedure. Implants are available in different sizes. We use international quality implants with no risk of tissue reaction. Cist of procedure is around 75000.

Hello, This may be an early onset of menses this time, just wait and watch if there is no itching vagina or burning micturition.

I am 20years old. I had a cyst on my left ovary (8.3cm). It was removed by micro surgery. Now I am well. And there is no pain and my period is normal. My question is, can it occur again? What should I do to prevent it?

I can certainly occur again as you have not removed the root cause of why it happened in the first place. Take thuja 200 six drops twice daily for a long time. Also have bio-chem tabs - 4 tabs daily for 6 months.

In some cases it's painful in the initial days. You can visit a gynaecologist who can help you after examining you. Follow it up regularly with the doctor who will guide you and also help overcome the anxiety and fear which may trigger the symptoms. You can also try homeopathy along with that later on.

Hi lybrate user, yes you can be pregnant as ipill is not 100% please get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Period two weeks back which you got could be due to pill withdrawal bleed.
