Materia Medica for Dengue

Dengue General

Dengue or Dengue fever is a form of viral infection. It is transmitted from body to body by an infected mosquito, named Aedes Aegypti. Dengue virus is categorized under the Flavivirus family. First case of Dengue was reported by Benjamin Rush in 1789 and was termed as Breakbone Fever. It is prominent in the tropical and subtropical climates worldwide. Being an arboviral, it affects nearly 50 million people and claims approximately 25,000 lives in a year. There are 4 serotypes of the Dengue virus (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, DEN-4). A body may develop immunity against a particular serotype upon recovery. However, the body may still get infected from the other 3 types of Dengue virus. Dengue fever can affect anybody but it is more likely to affect people with weak immnue system.
Symptoms of Dengue may appear in 3 to 10 days from the day of mosquito bite. Symptoms may vary from person to person, they maybe mild or severe. At times symptoms are so mild, they get easily confused with those of Flu or other viral infections. Symptoms may also go away and return back for another period of 2 to 3 days. Dengue symptoms include severe Joint and Muscle pain, sudden high Fever, severe Headache, extreme Tiredness, swollen Lymph nodes,
pain behind Eyes, Exhaustion, Nausea, Vomiting and Skin Rashes. In rare cases dengue may develop into Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) or Dengue Shock Syndrome (DSS). DHF may result into bleeding from the mouth and nose, low levels of blood platelets, blood plasma leakage, damage to the lymph vessels, bruises under the skin caused by bleeding. DSS is the most life threatening forms of Dengue. It may lead to leakage of fluid or plasma from the blood vessels, severe pain in the abdominal area, frequent Vomiting, Heavy Bleeding, Disorientation, shock that results by a sudden drop in Blood pressure. Both DHF and DSS are extremely dangerous and may require immediate hospitalization.

Platelet count falls very rapidly and if remedial measures are not as swift as the drop in platelet count, the patient will deteriorate.

Fortunately, these tinctures are available at Homeopathy dispensaries. In Homeopathy these tinctures are known by their botanical names.

Dear herbpathy team,

My dad has been diagnosed with 'suggesstive secondary dengue'. His reports shows both igg and igm to be positive.

The doctors had failed to diagnose it earlier. It has been 12 days. His platelet level was very low in his first blood test but in his second blood test (the one we took two days ago), his platelet count is within the required range. His fever, which had been fluctuating between 101-99?C has been normal since four to five days back.

Could you please tell me what these things indicate? Since all things are now normal, is there something else we need to be careful about?

I'm particularly worried about internal bleeding. I've heard it to be a consequence of dengue. There have been no bleeding marks or blood related vomiting or excretion either.

Please let me know whatever you can. I'll be forever grateful.
