Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
IT IS TIME FOR VIRAL IN THESE MONTHS EVERY YEAR THERE IS OUTBREAK OF VIRAL
THIS VIRAL EITHER DANGUE,WINE FLU,OR OTHER VIRALS ATTACK THEY DECREASE PLATELETS
IF U GIVE ANTIBIOTICS OR DRUGS WHICH BREAK WBC WE CAN LAND IN TROUBLE
SO N ANIBIOTICS ,NO PARACETAMOL
THE IDEA IS TO PREVENT FURTHER LOSS OF PLATELETS
NO MEDICINE TO INCREASE CELLS
DUE TO LESS WBC COUNT AND PLATELETS THERE IS LESS OXYGEN CARRYING CAPACITY AND SO COUGH FEVER AND WEAKNESS
KEEP PATIENT IN STRICT REST NEALY ISOLATION
GIVE FLUIDS IN ANY FORM AFTER 15 MINUTES GIVE SYPTOMATIC TREATMENT LIKE MEFTAL SOS FOR FEVER
ANTI ALLERGIC FOR RUNNING NOSE AND SNEEZING
COUGH SYP TO SUPRESS COUGH
ALL SYMPTOMPS WILL GO AUTOMATICALLY WHENCOUNT REACHES MORE THAN 3.5 LAKH
