Brief Answer:
symptoms of dengue..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX, Welcome to HCM,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern for Dengue,

Please note that Dengue initially presents as any other viral infections i.e. high grade fever along with/ without chills, bodyache along with joint pains, headache, pain abdomen etc.

On further progression, there'll be low platelet counts presenting itself as redness, itching, pinpoint skin rashes, several small subcutaneous bleeding, gum bleeding, reddish discoloration of urine, nose bleeding, subconjunctival bleeding etc.

On further further progression (only experienced in very severe cases) there's swelling all over body, breathing difficulty, internal hemorrhage along with multi-organ dysfunction followed by even mortality..

These are all the dengue symptoms in a nutshell, let me know if you need any further clarifications..

Take Care
Kind Regards
