Hello there,

As the diagnosis of Dengue has been made, there are certain warning signs that need to be looked for:

Severe abdominal pain, vomiting, change in temperature and mental irritability.

This is ominous and indicates Dengue shock syndrome. That is why a 48 hour period of observation is necessary in all cases of Dengue.

Your child already has significant bleeding in the form of black coloured stool and nose bleed.

Your child requires intensive monitoring in the intensive care with iv fluids and blood transfusion.

Wishing your child a speedy recovery.

Take care.
