Could frequent urination be a symptom of dengue?

I am 26 years old, about 5'7 and weigh about 140 lbs. Not much to say about my medical history...I do have a weak immune system and have allergies almost always. I am allergic to lots of foods/medicines/chemicals/scents. The most major thing to mention is a knee surgery I had about 10 years ago.

I live in Maui and there has been concern about dengue fever. I may have been exposed about a week ago (hiking in the rainforest/waterfall areas). I went to the doctor yesterday with some symptoms but nothing was determine. Today I have more symptoms and wont be back to the doctor till Thursday. Is increased peeing (like every hour compared to maybe once every 5-6 hrs) a symptom of dengue? And if I have dengue is there anything I can be doing NOW to help before my next doc visit to confirm what I have?

Hello dear,

Thank you for your contact to health care magic.

I read and understand your concern.

I am Dr Arun Tank answering your concern.

No peeing more is not the symptom of the dengue.

Fever which is coming and going and severe muscle ache with bone pain while having fever is the symptoms of the dengue.

But if you want to confirm the status of the dengue you can do a card test. This simple test will screen dengue from you.

Once tested you can do the management accordingly.

As such there is no treatment available for dengue. But you can take the fluid therapy. This can help flush the virus from the system.

Checking out platelet count is also necessary. If your platelet count goes down severely you may face the hemorrhagic episode. This will be helpful in proper management.

In future avoid mosquitoes bites as dengue can be spread by the mosquitoe bites.

I will be happy to answer your further concern on bit.ly/DrArun.

Thank you,
Dr Arun Tank
