Dengue fever should not be taken lightly for the reason that it is a serious mosquito-borne disease comprised of 4 various strains. Once not treated properly or if there’s another strain of the disease that’s contracted, dengue hemorrhagic fever, a more serious disease, will follow, which could result to the victim’s permanent disabilities or worst, death. So, proper protection against the dengue fever may prevent it from happening.
One important thing to note is there are no medicine available to treat dengue at this moment. There are no vaccines as well. Once infected, it is best for the person to be hospitalised to be monitored to ensure safety. So protect yourself by preventing mosquito bites.
Philippines is one of the places in the world that’s affected by dengue and other mosquito-borne diseases like Zika virus. Basically, the disease spread by bites from the infected Aedes mosquitoes. Mosquitoes would bite a person who has fever and virus that enters the mosquito. Once the mosquito bites a healthy individual, the insect will transfer dengue fever. There are generally 4 degree dengue viruses. That is the reason why the hunt for treatments and a vaccine is a big deal.
Symptoms of Dengue Fever
The disease’s mild forms may produce a variety of symptoms such as flu-like symptoms, headache, vomiting and nausea, headaches, pain behind the eyes, muscle pain and join, high fever, and rash. Some people might not experience symptoms, especially the ones with a mild case. As a matter of fact, most people who are infected might not develop symptoms that can increase the risk for transmissions. If symptoms develop, they start about 4-10 days usually after the patient was bitten by infected mosquitoes.
Dengue – Is it Contagious?
The transmission of dengue fever does not happen from one person to another. You cannot catch this disease from somebody who has it. The most typical way of getting infected with dengue is through the infected mosquito bites. In some rare cases, pregnant women may pass the disease to their unborn child or this could spread from the infected donors through organ and blood transfusions.
