Hello doctor,

I had the flu for two days. That included a fever, sore throat, and runny nose with a dry cough. The flu went away and now I just have a cough, but I have developed a rash behind my ears and a runny stomach in which my stool is black.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It seems like a hemorrhagic fever such as dengue in which the patient presents with a bleeding manifestation of melena (black-colored stools), bleeding gums, any hemorrhagic rashes, or hematuria, etc.
  • Black-colored stools indicate that blood is leaking from somewhere inside.
  • These symptoms are due to thrombocytopenia as platelet count decreases.
  • Do a hemogram at the earliest as also urine routine and stool routine examination.
  • I suggest you visit the nearest GP as quickly as possible.

Feel free to follow up any time with a blood investigation.
