Dengue - Treatment
by Dr. Nirmala Rajagopalan.

Dengue is an infection that spreads from one person to another through mosquito bites. It is hence seen in areas where mosquito infestation is high.

A person with dengue will have fever, shivering, maybe swollen glands (lymph nodes), fatigue and rash.


What does a person with these signs have to do?

The first thing to do is to visit the doctor. Specific blood tests will be done which indicate whether the person has dengue or not. If the person does test positive for dengue, then simultaneously the platelet count also has to be done. If the platelet count is too low, then there is a need for immediate admission and transfusion of platelets. If however, the platelet count is not very low, then the person can be managed with conservative treatment of fever and body pain and should also have good hydration. The person will have to be regularly monitored and the platelet counts will have to be checked by the doctor as well.

How can we prevent dengue?

The main thing to do is to keep your area mosquito free by using effective repellants. The other thing to do is to ensure that drains near your house are clean and not water logged because this is where mosquitoes will breed.

Dengue fever is a condition that can be successfully managed if it is diagnosed early and treated early.
