There are four different viral serotypes that causes dengue. Some people develop symptoms and for some others it is mild and may feel better very soon. For patients who do develop symptoms, with adequate rest and fluids, they start feeling better soon.
Very rarely, Dengue fever can progress into Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever and Dengue Shock Syndrome. Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever is consistent with nose bleeds, vomiting blood, passing blood in the stool etc. This happens because the dengue virus attacks the blood vessels and this also may lead to fluid leakage around the lungs, worsening the condition for the patient.
Dengue Haemorrhagic fever may quickly escalate into Dengue Shock Syndrome with loss of blood and fluid from the system. Your doctor will hospitalise you to treat you for loss of fluids and keep you under observation.
