Diagnosing dengue figures can be a little difficult because its symptoms and signs can be easily confused with those of other diseases- such as leptospirosis, malaria, and typhoid fever. Your doctor will probably ask you about your medical and travel history. Be sure to describe your every international trip in detail, including the countries you have visited and the dates, as well as any contact you may have with mosquitoes.
Some laboratory tests can detect evidence of the dengue viruses, but test results generally come back too late to help in taking direct treatment decisions.
There is no treatment or medication, particularly for dengue infection. If you believe you may be infected with dengue, you should use over-the-counter pain relievers to reduce your joint pain, fever, and headache. However, ibuprofen and aspirin can cause more bleeding and should be avoided.
Your doctor should perform a medical exam, and you should drink plenty of fluids and rest. If you feel really worse after the first 24 hours of illness- once your fever has gone down- you should be taken immediately to the hospital to check for complications.
