Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and can understand your health concern.

  • Only symptomatic treatment is recommended that is antipyretics for fever and antacids for nausea and vomiting.
  • Take plenty of fluids in the form of water, oral rehydration salt solution (ORS) and fruit juices.
  • Do not take any intramuscular injection. Watch for any bleeding from any body parts.
  • If platelets are below 30000, then platelet transfusion is required. Consult a physician if you develop cough, breathing difficulty or abdominal pain.
