how'll someone get Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever instead of Dengue Fever? only after repeated bites by mosquitoes?


i would like to know that why dengue fever is divided into DF and DHF? is it for the different approach of managements? how will someone get DHF instead of DF? i read in some literatures saying that only after repeated bites by the mosquito,DHF will only develop in the patient?is that true?any experimental evidence to support that? hoping for a reply,thank you very much.
----------

you could catch both from being bitten by a female aedes aegypti mosquito. those terms were used to describe the stage in which the patient is in. DHF/dengue hemorrhagic fever means its getting worse. in dengue you watch for 2 things, initially we note a decrease in the platelet count, then there is a hemoconcentration later on as seen by elevated hematocrit levels. that is the time you worry over bleeding tendencies when both decrease in platelet and hemoconcentration are present.  (+ info)

Do you have to have fever with Toxic Shock Syndrome?


I have a headache, diarrhea, and muscle pains. One thing many sights say is sudden fever, can you have TSS without a fever?
----------

TSS symptoms develop rapidly and this is a key clue. The symptoms range in severity, depending on the Strep or Staph bacteria involved.

With TSS you'll have flu-like symptoms, such as muscle aches and pains, stomach cramps, a headache, or a sore throat. The flu-like symptoms of TSS are common to many illnesses, but they develop much more quickly and are more severe than symptoms caused by a less serious illness.

You'd have a sudden fever 102 or greater, vomiting and diarrhea, a rash that looks like a sunburn, signs of shock, including low blood pressure and a rapid heartbeat, often with lightheadedness, possibly fainting or restlessness and confusion.

I doubt you have TSS.  (+ info)

Why virus, such as hemorrhagic fever will attack human eyes first?


I wanted to the fact about the virus. I search through internet cannot find it.Thank for help.
----------

well, the blood vessels in the eye are small and visible, so it will appear to affect the eyes first?  (+ info)

What causes arthralgia and myalgia in Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever?


Your muscles and joints ache because your body is using all of its energy to fight off infection, not to take care of your muscles and joints. It is like when you have the flu and your body aches, it because your body is trying to fight the infection using all the resources it can.  (+ info)
