Dengue ke Lakshan : Dengue fever is a painful, debilitating mosquito-borne disease, and people who become infected with the dengue virus for a second time have a much higher risk of developing severe disease.Symptoms of dengue fever (Dengue ke Lakshan) include high fever, body rash, headache, muscle and joint pain. Some severe cases cause bleeding and shock, which can be life-threatening.
Causes of Dengue Fever
Dengue fever is caused by any of four closely related dengue viruses. These viruses are related to the viruses that cause West Nile infection and yellow fever.
You can’t get dengue fever by being around an infected person; Instead, dengue fever is spread by mosquito bites. When an infected mosquito bites another person, the virus enters that person’s bloodstream and causes infection.
After you recover from dengue fever, you have long-term immunity to the virus that infected you – but not to the other three dengue fever virus types. This means you can get infected again by any of the other three virus types in the future. If you get dengue fever for the second, third or fourth time, the risk of developing severe dengue fever increases.
Symptoms of Dengue fever (Dengue ke Lakshan)
Symptoms of dengue fever, which usually begin four to six days after infection and last up to 10 days, may include:
- Sudden high fever (105 degrees)
- severe headache
- pain behind the eyes
- severe joint and muscle pain
- having diarrhea
- Skin rash, which appears two to five days after the fever begins
- Minor bleeding (such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums, or simple bruising)
Sometimes, the symptoms of dengue fever (Dengue ke Lakshan) are mild and may be symptoms of flu or other viral infections. Young children and people who have never had the infection before tend to have milder cases than older children and adults. However, they may develop serious problems. These include rare complications such as dengue hemorrhagic fever, high fever, damage to lymph and blood vessels, bleeding from the nose and gums, liver enlargement, and failure of the circulatory system. Symptoms can progress to massive bleeding, shock, and death. This is called dengue shock syndrome (DSS).
People with weakened immune systems and those with second or recurring dengue infections are considered to be at higher risk of developing dengue hemorrhagic fever.
Severe dengue fever occurs when your blood vessels become damaged and become leaky. And the number of clot-forming cells (platelets) in your bloodstream decreases. This can lead to shock, internal bleeding, organ failure, and even death.
Warning signs of severe dengue fever, which is a life-threatening emergency that can develop quickly. Warning signs usually start the first day or two after your fever goes away, and may include the following signs and symptoms (Dengue ke Lakshan):
- having severe stomach pain
- persistent vomiting
- bleeding gums or nose
- blood in urine, stool, or vomit
- bleeding under the skin, which may look like a bruise
- Difficulty breathing (difficult or rapid breathing)
- feeling tired
- irritability or restlessness
