Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne disease, which is mainly caused by those viruses that are transmitted to people by mosquitoes. It mostly occurs in tropical and subtropical areas of the world.
Mild dengue fever can cause a high fever, muscle and joint pain along with a rash. While a severe type of dengue fever, which is also called dengue hemorrhagic fever, can lead to severe bleeding, a quick drop in blood pressure and even in some cases can cause death.
Symptoms of Dengue Fever:
In mild case of dengue fever, a number of people, mainly children and teens, might not experience any particular signs or symptoms. Symptoms usually begin to appear after four to seven days of bitten by an infected mosquito.
Along with a high fever (104 F degrees), the most common symptoms of Dengue fever can be:
- Muscle, bone and joint pain
- Pain in eyes
- Swollen glands
In some severe cases of dengue fever, symptoms can get worsen and become life-threatening. In such cases, blood vessels generally get damaged and become leaky. Moreover, the number of clot-forming cells (platelets) in the bloodstream also drops. This severe condition of dengue fever is called dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome.
Signs and Symptoms of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever generally include:
- Severe abdominal pain
- Constant vomiting
- Bleeding from the gums or nose
- Blood in the urine or stools
- Bleeding under the skin
- Difficulty in breathing
- Cold or clammy skin
- Irritability or restlessness
Causes of Dengue Fever:
Dengue fever is typically caused by any one of four types of dengue viruses that are spread by mosquitoes and flourish around residence areas. When a mosquito infected with a dengue virus bites a person, the virus get entered into the person’s bloodstream.
After one gets recovered from dengue fever, he/she get immunity to the type of virus that infected him/her, however, not to the other three types of virus. In fact the risk of developing dengue hemorrhagic fever increases if one get infected a second, third or fourth time.
Diagnosis of Dengue Fever:
To make diagnoses of dengue fever can prove quite difficult as its signs and symptoms generally are similar that of other diseases like malaria, typhoid fever and leptospirosis.
However, the doctor may enquire about the patient’s medical and travel history. Hence, patient should describe his international trips in much detail, including the countries he/she visited and the dates, along with any contact he/she might have had with mosquitoes.
Some laboratory tests can prove helpful in detecting evidence of the dengue viruses, however, these test results mostly come very late to help direct treatment decisions.
Treatment for Dengue Fever:
Actually there is not any specific treatment for dengue fever. The doctor can generally recommend patients to drink sufficient fluids to avoid dehydration due to vomiting and a high fever.
One certain medication, mainly Acetaminophen can provide relief from pain and fever. Doctors also recommend to avoid taking some pain relievers, which can increase bleeding complications like aspirin, naproxen sodium (Aleve, others) and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others).
Those with severe dengue fever might require:
- Supportive care in a hospital
- Intravenous (IV) fluid and electrolyte replacement
- Blood pressure monitoring
- Transfusion to replace blood loss
