Dengue fever is an infectious disease carried by mosquitoes and caused by any of four related dengue viruses. This disease used to be called "break-bone" fever because it sometimes causes severe joint and muscle pain that feels like bones are breaking, hence the name.
Dengue fever can be caused by any one of four types of dengue virus:
You can be infected by at least two if not all four types at different times during your lifetime, but only once by the same type.
You can get dengue virus infections from the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected when they bite infected humans, and later transmit infection to other people they bite. Two main species of mosquito, Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, have been responsible for all cases of dengue transmitted in this country. Dengue is not contagious from person to person.
Symptoms of typical uncomplicated (classic) dengue usually start with fever within 4 to 7 days after you have been bitten by an infected mosquito and include
The rash may appear over most of your body 3 to 4 days after the fever begins, and then subsides after 1 to 2 days. You may get a second rash a few days later.
Symptoms of dengue hemorrhagic fever include all of the symptoms of classic dengue plus
This form of dengue disease can cause death.
Symptoms of dengue shock syndrome--the most severe form of dengue disease--include all of the symptoms of classic dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever, plus
This form of the disease usually occurs in children (sometimes adults) experiencing their second dengue infection. It is sometimes fatal, especially in children and young adults.
Your health care provider can diagnose dengue fever by doing two blood tests, 2 to 3 weeks apart. The tests can show whether a sample of your blood contains antibodies to the virus. In epidemics, a health care provider often can diagnose dengue by typical signs and symptoms.
Dengue is a condition of emergency, where the blood counts fall drastically if not treated effectively and immediately.
Homeopathic remedies can be used as post emergency treatment, where the blood counts have been stabilized. Medicines are very effective in restoring the vitality of a person after such attacks.
Homeopathic medicines can also be used with conventional therapies, to improve stamina, reduce fever, and improve appetite.
homeopathy has a limited role in emergency, but can be of great benefit post emergency.
