Hi Doctor, I am having fever since last 6 days with continuous headache. I am taking Paracetamol on regular intervals, but my fever temperature is not decreasing from 100 degree, sometimes it reaches to 103 degree as well. Because of the fever my appetite is also reducing day by day. I got it checked from doctor and she suggested me to get some blood tests done. On 8th October my Leucocytes count was 4200 (Normal Range- 4000-11000 cu.mm) and my Platelets count was 1.85 (Normal Range - 1.5-4.5 Lakh/cu.mm) but on 11th October my Leucocytes count decreased to 388 from 4200 and platelet count 1.42 from 1.85. Then I had the other readings as follows:
Dengue Antibody IGM - Not Detected. Dengue Antibody lgG- Not Detected. Dengue NS1 Antigen - Negative. Malaria Parasite/Blood Parasite Identification - No MP seen in smears examined. Then I had Complete Blood Count (CBC) Test. The report says: RBC Count is showing low - Current is 4.24 (Normal - 4.50-5.50). MCH is showing High - 33.70 (Normal - 27.00-32.00). MCHC is showing high - 35.80 (Normal - 32.00-35.00). Red Cell Distribution Width is high- 15.20 (Normal - 11.50-14.50).
Differential Leukocyte Count (DLC): Eosinophils is showing NIL-0.00 (Normal 1.00-6.00). Absolute Leukocyte count: Eosinophils is showing NIL - 0.00 (Normal 0.02-0.50). It has been 6 days now and I am still having the fever.
Kindly suggest what could be the reason and please help me know if I have dengue?
Why is my platelets count decreasing?
