Dengue or Viral Fever
I’m not feeling very well… yesterday I nearly vomit in my car on my way back home. I went to see the doctor and she told me either I got viral fever or dengue fever. There are differences between dengue fever and viral fever… if the person gets very high temperature, headache, fatigue, and nausea… these symptoms similarly to viral fever. However if the symptoms persists more than 4 days, even though the temperature is not high, but fatigue, nausea, vomit, headache became more serious, it might be the symptoms of dengue fever. The more accurate diagnose for dengue fever are through blood and platelet counts. The most suitable time to do the blood count is on the 4th day of the incident. Ohhh… I hope this is just a viral fever and not dengue.
