Dengue is a painful, debilitating viral infection which is transmitted by an infected female Aedes mosquito. There are four serotypes of the dengue virus (DEN 1, DEN 2, DEN 3 and DEN 4). Symptoms appear in 3–14 days after the infective bite.
Signs to watch out for:
• High Fever
• Headache & body pain
• Nausea & vomiting
• Presence of rash
How to get it diagnosed ?
Dengue NS1 antigen test: It is a specific test done to confirm infection during its acute phase. NS1 antigen is a non-structural protein found circulating in the infected person from the first day of fever up to 9 days after onset of fever.
Tips to defeat Dengue:
• Have plenty of water, even if you don’t feel thirsty.
• Take lot of fruit juice like lemon juice, orange juice, mosambi juice, papaya juice, pomegranate juice, etc. and focus more on Vitamin C rich fruits.
• In case of excessive weakness, ORS (Oral Rehydration Salts) should be taken.
• Consume easily digestible food.
In Dengue, the platelet count usually comes down. Avoid panicking, even if the platelet count comes down drastically. The count can go up also in the same way it had gone down.
Have alternate day checking of Platelet count. Be careful that the count does not go below 20000. In case of such a drop, rush to the hospital immediately.
