You probably know this thing linked to dengue

It is not uncommon for anyone who is bitten by a dengue mosquito to develop a fever and become ill. 
If 4 people are bitten by a mosquito, only 1 person has a fever and gets sick. While the remaining 3 people are asymptomatic. Some people survive because they have a better immune system.

Only 5% of people with dengue fever have their lives at risk, meaning that if 20 patients have had dengue, there will be only one person whose life is at risk due to dengue. There are a total of 3 stages of dengue and during this time different conditions are seen in the body.

The fever phase

lasts 2 to 7 days in the first week of dengue fever, which is accompanied by fever as well as body aches and pain behind the eyes. Bleeding from some parts of the body is also possible during this time. Then red rashes are also seen on the body. Early stages of dengue include fever as well as abdominal pain, weakness, and shortness of breath.

Critical phase

This stage begins within 2 to 3 days of the fever ending. This causes swelling on various parts of the body such as the hands, feet and face. Apart from this, there may be problems of water filling in the lungs and water in the stomach. At this stage the patient's platelet count decreases and this increases the risk to life. This stage problem can be prevented if adequate treatment is taken at the right time. This requires treatment according to the advice of doctors.

It is important to drink enough fluids during this time. In which electrolyte powder, coconut water, juice, papaya leaf juice etc. should be taken. Care should be taken to prevent diarrhea and vomiting during this time. Blood pressure and platelets should be checked periodically. Platelets count stays above 1 lakh when recovery begins. And the plasma starts coming back into the blood. In this way the balance of blood pressure and pulse is maintained. Disclaimer: Be sure to consult your doctor before implementing the information provided in this article.
