Dengue Fever Topic Guide
Dengue Fever: Dengue fever is a disease transmitted to humans via mosquito bites. Dengue fever symptoms and signs include rash, fever, headache and joint pain. Diagnosis may involve a complete blood count and spinal tap to rule out other diseases. Adequate hydration and pain-control medications will help to manage dengue fever symptoms.
Complete Blood Count (CBC) Complete blood count (CBC) is one of the most common blood tests. The complete blood count test provides valuable information about the quantity of the different types of cells in the blood. Red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are the major cells in the blood. Complete blood count can assist in diagnosing anemia, certain cancers, kidney problems, and allergic reactions.
