Dengue is one of the most common kinds of debilitating mosquito-borne disease that happens because of the mosquito biting. It usually happens in tropical countries. The symptoms of the same include sudden rise in fever, vomiting, nausea, acute body pain, etc.
HOW IS DENGUE DIAGNOSED?
The health care practitioner will suggest a couple of blood tests to track the platelet count which drops drastically in dengue. The other tests done are antibody tests and molecular testing (PCR).
HOW IS DENGUE TREATED?
Those who suffer from dengue should avoid aspirin and opt for acetaminophen. Treatment includes medication or paracetamol to bring down the fever. The individual may be hospitalised to provide fluids through intravenous and on the whole this is a life-threatening disease.
DID YOU KNOW?
Mosquitoes that carry this infection are bigger in size than regular ones. However, if one person in your home is affected, there is a risk that others are prone to it too. You should use mosquito repellents at home as effective preventive measure.
