Dengue fever is a disease caused by a family of viruses that are transmitted by mosquitoes. It is an acute illness of sudden onset that usually follows a benign course with symptoms such as headache, fever, exhaustion, severe muscle and joint pain, swollen glands (lymphadenopathy), and rash. The presence (the "dengue triad") of fever, rash, and headache (and other pains) is particularly characteristic of dengue. Other signs of dengue fever include bleeding gums, severe pain behind the eyes, and red palms and soles.

What are the Symptoms of Dengue Fever?

Symptoms of typical uncomplicated dengue usually start within 5 to 6 days after a person has been bitten by an infected mosquito. Some common symptoms are:

  1. High fever

  2. The fever may reach 105 degrees Fahrenheit

  3. Severe headache

  1. Pain behind the eye

  2. Severe joint pain

  3. Severe muscle pain

  4. Nausea

  5. Rash

Treatment at home if you develop dengue fever

  1. Take rest

  2. Drink plenty of fluids like oral rehydration solution, fresh juice, soups, coconut water. This will help to prevent dehydration due to vomiting and high fever.

  3. Take the medications prescribed by your doctor.

  4. Do not take aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen. These drugs increase the risk of bleeding complications.

  5. Do tepid sponging if the fever is high

  2. Rub the afflicted area with the inside of a banana skin.

  3. Put ice on the spot immediately after being stung.
