High Fever or Dengue?

Today is the second day Nadhirah is having fever. Only fever. The doctor pun hiran, her tekak looks fine, no coughing but she's having fever. The doctor already prepared us with reference letter to the hospital. However we will wait till tomorrow. If her fever has not subside, we need to do a blood test. Ni pun sebab, my sister was diagnosed with dengue yesterday and now she is hospitalized. She has been having fever off and on for a week. After a blood test yesterday, she was admitted. Thus, we are being cautious if Nadhirah is infected as well. I do pray hard, its just a normal fever.

Some signs and symptoms of dengue. 
- High fever (104 F, 40°C)
- Chills
- Headache
- Red eyes, pain in the eyes
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Deep muscle and joint pains (during first hours of illness)

- Extreme fatigue

My sis was having some of the symptoms but only yesterday that some rashes appears on her body. Up to now, she's recovering, Alhamdulillah.
