Recovering from dengue and getting back to regular life is bliss! But should you get back to work/school immediately? That's an important thing to consider. You need to rest sufficiently and make sure you are completely healthy before resuming work/school. If you are still weak and have not had proper rest, there are chances you might get infected again or fall sick due to low immunity. Dengue affects your immune system, and you need to make sure that your body is ready to get back into the routine.

In this video, our experts tell you how much rest you require. Dr. Alka Chaddha, a senior pathologist at Hope & Care Clinic and one of our panelists, stresses on how important it is to stay calm and happy to help your body build its immune system. The doctors will take care of you and help you recover. All you can do it not panic and try to be as happy as possible. Sometimes, panic and stress during dengue can worsen your condition making it difficult for the doctors to treat you as it affects your immune system too.
