Spread of Dengue Fever

An infected Aedes mosquito transmits the dengue virus from one person to another when it bites them.

Dengue is transmitted by the mosquito, Aedes aegypti, which acts as the vector in transmitting the dengue virus.

The mosquito gets infected by the dengue virus when it bites a person who has dengue or DHF. For about a week the virus multiplies inside the mosquito, after which it bites a healthy person, who soon develops symptoms of dengue fever.

Hi all, if u have a fever in this season get your blood test done for dengue, ASAP.If fever accompanied with pain between eyes, head ache, vomiting etc are symptoms of the disease. Far as i have known there is no medicine except the home concoctions that can save you the agony of Drip/ hospitals transfusions etc: 1] Juice extracted from 2 papaya leaves twice a day. 2) Goats milk [fresh and not boiled/ just filtered) approx 250 ml twice a day. 3) To take care of the fever you can have the Crocin/ Tylenol that the doc prescribes. These concoctions are life savers, when medicine seems to have no answer.

Dengue is a very dangerous disease; however one can get cured through proper treatments. I had suffered from Dengue a couple of years back. It took me about two weeks to recover completely.

hi iv suffered from dengue 2 weeks ago. there no medicine given to me. only antacid for the stiomach taken every morning. My doctor advised me to drink more water. It may be no medical exsplanation but eating 10pcs each day of quail eggs help me improve my platelet. taua taua leaves also is a big factor for me to be able to recover.

don't give aspirin to a suspected dengue patient. it is an a thrombolytic agent, meaning, it is a drug used to prevent blood clots as in patients suffering from hypertensive diseases. in dengue hemorrhagic fever, the part of the blood called platelets, gets depleted, these platelets are important. why? because they aid in the clotting mechanism. if you take aspirin which is a lytic agent, the platelets are prevented from clotting. if the blood doesn't clot, then, there will be bleeding from the nose, the gums or the stomach.

My husband was hospitalized due to dengue. After 5days, his blood platelet count back to normal with no fever at all. After a day he was discharged from the hospital, we noticed again that he has rashes in his body, arms and legs but he doesn't feel anything, no fever, has appetite and no muscle pain. Can I have your advise please?
