Navigating Dengue: A Comprehensive Guide to At-Home Monitoring
Dengue fever, a mosquito-borne viral illness, is a growing concern in regions like India. Its symptoms often mimic those of other diseases such as malaria, influenza, Zika, chikungunya, measles, and yellow fever, making diagnosis a challenge. Moreover, dengue cases are on the rise.
In a similar vein to how we adapted to managing COVID-19 at home during the pandemic, we're introducing a home-based solution for dengue. NanoHealth presents the Dengue Home Monitoring Program, designed to empower you to take control of your health in the event of a dengue infection.
Understanding Dengue's Phases
Dengue fever manifests in three distinct phases:
1. The Febrile Phase
What to Expect: Symptoms typically include fever, a sore throat, a mild headache, and intense body aches ("break-bone fever"). It may also entail an itchy rash, reduced appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea, fatigue, and irritability.
2. The Critical Phase
Timing: The critical phase usually ensues 24 to 48 hours after the fever subsides.
Why It's Important: This phase demands extra vigilance as it coincides with a drop in blood platelet count.
3. The Road to Recovery
Signs of Improvement: Gradual restoration of appetite and decreased dehydration indicate recovery. During this phase, your condition progressively improves.
