Symptoms for Yellow Fever ?
Many yellow fever infections are mild, but the disease can cause severe, life-threatening illness. Symptoms of severe infection are high fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, vomiting, and backache. After a brief recovery period, the infection can lead to shock, bleeding, and kidney and liver failure. Liver failure causes jaundice (yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes), which gives yellow fever its name.
Symptoms start 3 to 6 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. Yellow fever is diagnosed by a blood test.
