the initial symptoms of chicken gunya and dengue are very similar. there is constant vomiting and nausea. this does not stop inspite of anti vomiting drugs
3rd day of fever is very important if there are respiratory complications like breathlessness and abdominal boating leads to clinically in favour of dengue. now there are card tests which are rapid reliable too. but costly in India.
chicken gunya chloroquin intramuscular injections are very effective . if given during 1st 3days it works wonders. the muscular swings and tendon swellings disappear fast.
if choloroquin is delayed the swellings last for many days
i would recommend choloroquin for treatment.
