As soon as the weather changes, the fever virus starts spreading its feet. Sometimes high fever, sometimes body breaking fever, sometimes cough with headache, cold, low fever, sometimes fever with flatulence, flu (viral) typhoid, malaria, dengue etc.
, The symptoms of each fever are different, which are difficult to pin down. Common man to know in general. The discussion of Kovid is enough and it can be diagnosed only by RTPCR test, but it is also important to know the symptoms of other fevers. Come, let us know the symptoms of some common fevers that surround us every year during the change of seasons.
flu (viral) / corona
This fever is the most common fever because its virus remains in the air, making the weak, old and children easily vulnerable. This fever spreads the infection very fast. If someone else uses the thing that came in contact with the patient, then the risk of it going viral also increases like phone, handle, towel etc. Often this viral fever lasts for 3 to 5 days.
Symptoms include headache, joint and muscle pain, fatigue, sore throat, cough, cold (runny nose or stuffy nose), redness of the eyes.
Although no test is required in this fever, but its symptoms and symptoms of corona are similar, so RTPCR test should be done after a day or two in case of high fever. If the fever persists for more than 5 days, a complete blood count is performed. This shows that there is no infection in the blood. If the count is low then there is viral fever, if the count is high then there is bacterial fever, then doctors start treatment accordingly.
Treatment :-
The fever can be up to 102 degrees in this. For this, doctors recommend taking paracetamol every six hours. Children are advised to take Paracetamol Syrup according to their age and weight. If the fever does not improve for a day or two, consult a doctor.
Malaria Fever:
This fever is spread from mosquitoes to humans. Earlier malaria was followed by fever every day, but now it has been seen that fever also remains constant. Malaria fever is caused by the bite of the female Anopheles mosquito. This mosquito breeds in dirty water and often bites in the evening.
Malaria fever often lasts for a week, but if not treated properly, the fever can persist for up to 2 weeks. High fever is often accompanied by chills. Common symptoms include headache, body aches, tremors, vomiting or nausea, and feeling weak. Sometimes the patient even faints.
This information is obtained by conducting a blood test. One must definitely go to the doctor for examination so that he can do proper treatment and also can tell the dosage. Rest is required. Do not take anti-malarial medication on your own without a doctor’s advice.
Typhoid :-
Typhoid fever subsides on the first day, then gradually increases. Typhoid fever is caused by Salmonella bacteria, which cause ulcers in the intestine, which are also the cause of fever. Typhoid is spread by drinking dirty water. Although there is a vaccine for typhoid, it is not 100% effective. Fever recurs even after vaccination. Still, you should get vaccinated. This gives 65 percent protection.
Typhoid fever can last from 2 weeks to 4 weeks. If not treated properly it can get worse. Fever is high in typhoid. Its main symptoms are headache, body pain, vomiting, heart failure, sometimes blood in the stool. A blood test is necessary to confirm typhoid. Doctors speak for the Vidal test or blood culture test. Once confirmed, a course of antibiotics is given. It may take 5 to 7 days for the fever to subside. Do not panic. Keep hands clean, drink boiled water.
Dengue fever is also spread through mosquito bites. It is spread by the bite of female Aedes aegypti mosquito. These mosquitoes bite during the day especially in the morning. This fever lasts for 5 to 10 days.
In this too high fever, severe headache, pain behind the eyes, weakness, vomiting, abdominal pain, dizziness are its common symptoms. Sometimes bleeding gums, bloody stools or vomiting may occur. Dark bluish black spots may also appear on the body. The patient may have low BP, may become unconscious.
There are three types of dengue. Simple, dengue hemorrhagic, dengue shock syndrome. Dengue fever is also detected by the test, it is known even on the first day after getting this test done. In case of simple dengue, take paracetamol every six hours after resting the throat. Take more fluids. Take lemonade, buttermilk, coconut water so that the blood does not thicken and does not freeze.
In the remaining two dengue fever, platelets start decreasing, which can have a bad effect on the vital organs of the body. Even after the fever subsides, platelets must be done after a day or two. Keep checking BP also.
