My name is Tom, i'm 15 and I've recently been on a holiday to Sabah in Malaysia where Malaria and Dengue fever are common. I had one day in Sabah where I was bitten around 15 times.
2 days later I was cold then quite violently sick.
When I arrived back in the UK, I was then ill again, feeling cold, then hot and then sweating quite a large amount. I've been feeling tired and not very well since I got back around 5 days ago. Usually I cope with jetlag very well and it takes me hardly any time to get over it.
I've gone to the doctors and they did a blood test and i've been told I do not have malaria, but my Platelet count is low and I have to go back in 2 weeks.
If I do have Dengue, will I still be able to visit areas like Malaysia, or is Dengue more deadly the second time?
