What Causes Body Pain And Persistent Cough When Diagnosed With Dengue?
Old case of dengue. Possibly an independent case of viral infection.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through the details and understand your concern. IgG positivity indicates that sometimes in life the child has suffered from dengue fever. I do not think it to be due to anything else.
Let me mention that dengue is a type of viral infection. Possibly the child has another episode of a random viral fever. You need not be alarmed about it or about dengue. Dengue is a disease transmitted by mosquitoes and so you need to use mosquito nets and prevent development of breeding ground for mosquitoes. The primary concern about dengue is because a very small percentage of the affected individuals may develop dengue shock syndrome (DSS) where fluid moves out of the blood vessels and unless that fluid is replaced (by drinking plenty of ORS, water or through IV fluids) vascular collapse and therefore shock may result. But even in case of DSS all that needs to be done is to ensure a good hydration, nothing more. So, you need not panic about dengue. Just make sure to drink plenty of fluids.
Unless you find any sort of bleeding manifestations, you need not rush to the hospital without delay.
Please be patient. Feel free to ask me back if you have any further queries.
Not a cause for concern.
Thanks for writing back. I have checked the attached report. You can rest certain that your child is suffering from a viral upper respiratory tract infection. This infection is the cause of the body ache. It is a very common phenomenon. I do not see the requirement to see a specialist. You would need to be patient. Wait and watch. Things should resolve in a week.
