As the name suggests, yellow fever comes with evident signs of skin getting yellow and it is a highly contagious and viral disease. Symptoms here include high fever, chills in different parts of the body, pain in the abdominal area and also yellow urine. Even though the disease starts off in the liver it gradually spreads and has symptoms quite similar to that of jaundice.
HOW IS YELLOW FEVER DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of yellow fever is done through a urine or blood tests though liver scans are also suggested.
HOW IS YELLOW FEVER TREATED?
No specific treatments have been found to benefit patients with yellow fever. Whenever possible, yellow fever patients should be hospitalized for supportive care and close observation. Treatment is symptomatic. Rest, fluids, and use of pain relievers and medication to reduce fever may relieve symptoms of aching and fever. Care should be taken to avoid certain medications, such as aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. ibuprofen, naproxen), which may increase the risk of bleeding. Yellow fever patients should be protected from further mosquito exposure (staying indoors and/or under a mosquito net) for up to 5 days after the onset of fever. This way, yellow fever virus in their bloodstream will be unavailable to uninfected mosquitoes, thus breaking the transmission cycle and reducing risk to the persons around them.
DID YOU KNOW?
Personal prevention of yellow fever includes vaccination, as well as avoidance of mosquito bites in areas where yellow fever is endemic. Institutional measures for prevention of yellow fever include vaccination programmes and measures of controlling mosquitoes. Programmes for distribution of mosquito nets for use in homes are providing reductions in cases of both malaria and yellow fever.
