With dengue cases on the rise, the Department of Health (DOH) is urging the public to know the symptoms of the disease, especially during the critical period when the patient's fever starts to go down.

Dr. Eric Tayag, Chief of the DOH National Epidemiology Center, said on Unang Balita on Friday that dengue symptoms include:

High fever
Rashes
Vomiting
Stomach pains
Nosebleeding
Low platelet count
Difficulty in breathing

Tayag said patients who show these symptoms should immediately be brought to the hospital.
