Here’s how you can save yourself from Dengue

 The ongoing monsoon season along with a great weather change has brought in dreadful water-borne diseases like Dengue. India has been one of the worst-hit countries with the number of dengue-related deaths being at an all-time high.
 
The side effects of dengue include high fever (104°F), joined by severe headache, pain behind the eyes, nausea and vomiting, swollen glands, muscle, and joint pains and rashes. These symptoms usually last for 2-7 days, following an incubation time of 4-10 days subsequent to being nibbled by a contaminated mosquito.
 
The cautioning signs of dengue infection include serious stomach pain, persistent vomiting, rapid breathing, bleeding gums, blood in vomit, fatigue, and restlessness.
 
Where there is no particular treatment for dengue fever, patients should look for medical advice, take rest and drink a lot of liquids. Paracetamol can help to cut down fever and decrease joint pains.
 
In the case of Dengue, prevention is the best way to combat Dengue. One should wear proper clothing to avoid mosquito bites. 
In addition, the mosquito-repellents can also help to keep the mosquitoes away.
 
Apart from the prevention of diseases, self-medication is one of the main reason for further spreading of diseases. A number of people make the mistake of taking aspirin or ibuprofen which can lead to further damage. 
 
Also, do ensure that you get plenty of rest and drink fluids to prevent dehydration. During the first week of infection, dengue virus can be found in your blood. 
 
If a mosquito bites you, it can become infected and spread the virus to other people through bites. To help prevent others from getting sick, protect yourself from mosquito bites during the first week of illness. Rest in a screened or air-conditioned room or under a bed net while you have a fever.
