Dengue fever is not an ordinary fever because it is life-threatening and because it is extremely dangerous


This article is related to Dengue fever, and this is an off-topic article (i.e. website development processes). My first and foremost intention of writing this article is to raise awareness about dengue fever among this blog subscribers and those who are reading this write-up. Basically, this blog is related to website development processes and not for anything else to discuss. I am not a health instructor, or any other person related to health issues, so in this post I would not like to recommend or suggest anything written here.


I am Nishant Saxena having more than 10 years of experience in website development of Chandigarh IT Park and created this blog to let more and more people know about the website development processes. We should follow these tips, tricks, techniques, and other things discussed here while creating a good website.

My elder brother – Mr. Sunit Kumar Saxena, suffered from dengue fever in 2015 living in Bangalore city in India, at that time it was at peak level, when he was suffering. Now at present (2024), he is living in Ohio, US and working there in a reputed company as Aeronautical Engineer.

Our engineer encounters horrible dengue and overcomes this tough phase with right dengue perspective, cross threatening, and dangerous dengue fever like a walk in a park, uses his capabilities to tackle it with care – THE dengue fever encounter, read how he fought with dengue fever.

The victim of dengue fever has heard about it, so he knows a little bit about platelets count and its symptoms. So, he when captured by dengue fever he knows somewhat about its treatment. In the beginning, he started treatment for Malaria. Dengue symptoms he knows. He was captured by the dengue virus, unfortunately. He saw many dengue fever related pictures. Finally, he is in the dengue fever band. Don’t ever hear about the dengue fever vaccine. Dengue virus life cycle and how affects our life. Post dengue fever care, he is aware and taking the same nowadays. Immunity after dengue fever no doubt reduces. Zika virus is also a related virus in dengue virus transmission. Please take proper good action against mosquitoes and be aware of dengue, test dengue, and use a test kit for the same. Require diagnosis of dengue fever before starting its treatment. Dengue fever, also known as break-bone fever, symptoms include fever, headache, muscle, and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is like measles. Aedes, meaning “unpleasant” or “odious”. Dengue fever is spread by female Aedes aegypti.

Engineer says dengue fever sucks, and it made him cry.

Some fruit juices that work in my case:

  • Papaya Juice
  • Kiwi Juice
  • Pomegranate Juice

Remember to consume these juices in moderation and consult a healthcare professional if you have any specific dietary concerns. Stay hydrated and focus on a balanced diet to aid your recovery during dengue fever.

In India here people usually call dengue as dengu, denguine, degu, dechu, dengare, denguu, denju, dengare, denu, denise, dichku etc.

People all over the world confuse dengue with -

  • Chikungunya
  • Malaria
  • Dog Heartworm
  • Yellow Fever
  • Eastern Equine Encephalitis
  • St. Louis Encephalitis
  • LaCrosse Encephalitis
  • Western Equine Encephalitis
  • West Nile Virus

We take the initiative through this platform to raise awareness about dengue fever among peoples; the dengue fever is deadly because it leads to death, so I think this is the right medium to convey my thoughts, also it is well-known and called as break-bone fever or dengue fever, is an aedes mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the virus. In a small fraction of cases, the disease dengue fever develops into the life-threatening dengue hemorrhagic fever literally well known as dengue fever, resulting in bleeding, low levels of blood platelets and blood plasma leakage, or into dengue shock syndrome in this dengue fever is common, where dangerously low blood pressure occurs in almost all cases of dengue fever.

This Dengue Fever is also well known as 7-day fever, dandy fever, infectious disease, break-bone fever.


We would like to share our experience of dengue fever and hope that this information will help all readers (engineering and non-engineering field people also).

Important Note: This article should not be considered as medical advice in any form. One should take proper medical treatment in case of dengue fever. Here the intention is only to share our experience.

How It Started, Symptoms Etc.

It started with a slight headache on 25th Sep 2015, on a Friday evening. Mild Fever and headache on the morning of 26th Sep; by evening fever went up to 101F. Took a temperature-reducing tablet. On Sunday 27th, the same symptoms continued during the day. Thinking of a typical headache and feverish body, he took a temperature reducing tablet again. By the evening of 27th Sep, even after taking temperature reducing tablet, when the fever went up to 102F, decided to visit the doctor.

As per the Doctor’s advice, took one injection (to control fever), and, he gave three doses of antibiotic tablets, to be taken for the next three days and temperature reducing tablet, whenever fever shoots. With this treatment, there was absolutely NO sign of relief; fever & headache continued Monday (28th Sep) and Tuesday (29th Sep). No mood for eating whatsoever it is, not even having water. Started feeling very dull and weak. On Tuesday (29th Sep) afternoon, went for a second opinion with another Doctor. Blood test report confirmed positive dengue (NS1). Platelet count variation from 29th Sep till 7th Oct is shown graphically. The interesting part to observe platelet counts which were on the rising trend went suddenly down before finally recovering back. A true roller coaster ride!

On 30th Sep, when platelet count increased from 1.2 to 1.5 Lakhs/Cumm; we thought our deal with Dengue Fever is over! Then came the exciting roller coaster ride. On 1st Oct, it was 1.1 L/C; a drastic fall of 0.4L/C in a single day. On 2nd Oct, the platelet count further dropped to 0.8L/C. At this point, the doctor advised some Injection. The blood test reading on 3rd Oct was 0.82L/C; again, doctor advised for second Injection. After this day, subsequent blood test readings showed an increasing trend in platelet count.

Date-wise platelet count variation is shown in the graph.

  • 11:30 PM – Wheat grass juice.
As per the doctor’s advice, drink, I use to intake as much juice/water as I can (approximately 4 to 5 liters) daily.

Even though the dengue fever headache was severe, I have avoided painkillers of any sort during this period. Got head massage for relaxation. Complete rest; not even walking around the house.

Whenever the fever was on the higher side (101F or above) I used to take prescribed medicines for dengue fever reduction. There were some days, even prescribed medicines were not able to control the fever. At those times, used traditional way of wiping with a wet towel helps.

As a precautionary measure, all family members were using mosquito repellent cream; especially myself. This is a critical precaution that we took, to prevent further spreading. The intention was to stop dengue fever mosquitoes from biting me and spreading it further.

Even when the Dengue fever was over, platelet counts reached 2.5 L/C; there was a lot of general weakness for almost 2 to 3 weeks.

Finally, ………
