How to manage dengue fever at home?
Hello, I am an 18 years old male. My roommate is suffering from dengue. He was suffering from fever and even had joint pain, so we both visited a doctor. I want to take care of him at home as well so that he recovers faster. Can anyone tell me how can I manage dengue fever at home? Thank you!
@ronak Hello, Dengue is a virus, so there is no specific treatment or cure. Firstly prevent dehydration A high fever and vomiting can dehydrate the body. The person should drink clean water, ideally bottled rather than tap water. Rehydration salts can also help replace fluids and minerals. Give him papaya leaves juice, and orange juice. Contact your doctor if he gets serious symptoms. Thank you!
