Friends today I am discussing about Dengue fever .
Dengue Fever triggers an instant scare, and rightly so. It’s a viral fever spread by mosquitoes and caused by the Dengue virus. It is also known as “break bone fever”. The main symptoms of Dengue Fever are high fever with severe muscle and joint pains. Other symptoms include headache, pain behind the eyes worsened by eye motion or pressure, nausea or vomiting, and skin rash. A few cases of Dengue Fever may show a bleeding tendency too, when it is termed Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever. The bleeding may be under the skin (Petechiae, Echymosis, Purpura), from the nose (Epistaxis), gums, vomiting of blood (Hematemesis) or blood in stool. In such cases, the platelets (cells responsible for clotting of blood) in the blood significantly decrease in platelets leading to hemorrhages and also extravasation of fluids . In severe bleeding and extravsation of fluids , shock develops with lowered blood pressure, rapid or weak pulse with cold clammy skin and restlessness. Such severe cases with shock are referred to as Dengue Shock Syndrome.
