Suggest remedies for dengue fever

Posted on Fri, 8 Dec 2017 in Infections
Question: Hi Doctor,
I am age 36 male. I got dengue fever on 12-10-2017 and got admitted to hospital on 14-10-2017. I got discharged on 18-10-2017. Bcoz my platelet count was 1.2 lakh. It was NS1 reactive. How ever i was having itching at that time and on my body. But no rashes.I had vomiting with bit of blood clots , chills.I am attaching the discharge summary of the report. Currently as on today, My problem is i am having red blisters on my penis head. I am attaching a pic of it . I also have itching on my hands and lower thigh. I noticed these red blisters few days before. They are a bit irritating. I stopped all the medication given by the doctor except monotax tablet. My question is why did i get these red blisters. Are they due to dengue fever or not? Or or they due to something else. I had intercourse with my wife twice after i came from the hospital. After that i noticed these red blisters that are irritating. How ever when i use tablet they are not itchy or irritating. No pain while urination. Upper skin cover of the penis also have few red blisters. But when i touch that part or move my skin up and down i feel itching pain and irritation. Once i use monotax tablet twice daily after breakfast and dinner, I feel that itching is reduced a bit in both my body as well as those red blisters. But if dont use that tablet i have itching on my lower thighs and arms. what should i do. Is this due to dengue or intercourse. Iam not sure please help..Thanking you sir in advance.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HealthcareMagic..
I thank you for posting your query here and I am definitely going to help you out..

I read your question completely and have understood it well enough..

I have also gone through the discharge summary and the photograph that you have attached.

Please note..

1. Itching is non specific considering your disease of dengue.
It is seen in few patients and totally normal. Nothing to worry for that..

2. Vomiting and blood clots again is expected In the dengue disease.

3. Yes. In dengue, sometimes there may be micro vascular bleeding, leading to such a scenario.
This is very much related to the disease.

4. Yes, you are right.. Such lesions usually cause pain, itching.
Suggest you not to involve in intercourse unless the lesions heal.

Usually they will heal on its own. No need for any medications.
Use the tablet given by your doctor.

5. It is because of dengue. Don't worry.

You can wait for 4 to 5 more days. No sexual activity. And those medications.

You should be fine..

Hope this helps you,.
In case you need further assistance, please contact me back.. Take care.
