Symptoms of dengue fever typically appear within 3-14 days after infection and can include fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, fatigue, nausea, and a rash. In some cases, dengue fever can progress to a more severe form of the disease called dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), which is characterized by bleeding, low platelet count, and increased vascular permeability. In severe cases, dengue fever can lead to dengue shock syndrome (DSS), which can be fatal if not treated promptly.
