Is it worth getting dengue test? Or just keep resting and rehydrating and monitor for complications. Seem to have all main symptoms, and live in Asia.

When this happens, the patient can start bleeding which could be catastrophic. The test is very easy-- tourniquet test and I'm sure any doctor there will know how to check u. Then, please get a platelet count and do what the doc tells u. ...Read more

I'd dengue a month back. During hectic travel, had same symptoms again. Today IgM test antibodies detected. Is it confirm I have dengue again ?

No: Anti-dengue igm can stay around for as long as a year. The best way to make the diagnosis of a second attack is by symptoms and signs. It is often quite severe, since it's by a second variant of dengue and you're very immune to the first, so your immune system may make you seriously ill. You'll know in a short time. Hoping this is not dengue again, or that you'll get good supporting treatment. ...Read more

IgM tests indicate recent exposure -perhaps you were one of the lucky ones with a subclinical form of the disease (no major symptoms). Hope your doc can help ...Read more
