Effective Treatment & Remedies for Dengue fever at homeoapathicClinic, MumbaiDefinition:-
Dengue fever is a disease caused by viruses that are transmitted bymosquitoes. It is an acute ,sudden illness followed by a benign course withsymptoms 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 Petechiae (small red or purple blistersunder the skin), bleeding gums, severe pain behind the eyes, and red palmsand soles.Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a more severe form of the viral illness.
Prevalence:
Dengue is prevalent throughout the tropics and subtropics.Dengue fever is common, and statistics show it may be increasing inSoutheast Asia. Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, and Malaysia have allreported an increase in cases.Nearly 40% of the world's population lives in an area endemic with dengue.
Causes:
The virus is contracted from the bite of a striped
Aedes aegypti
mosquito thathas previously bitten an infected person.The mosquitoes are more in rainy seasons but can breed in water-filledflower pots, plastic bags, and cans year-round. One mosquito bite can inflictthe disease.The virus is not contagious and cannot be spread directly from person toperson. There must be a person-to-mosquito-to-another-person pathway.
 
Sy
mptoms and signs
y
 
After being bitten by a mosquito carrying the virus, the incubationperiod ranges from three to 15 (usually five to eight) days before thesigns and symptoms of dengue appear.

Painful aching in the legs and joints occurs during the first hours of illness.

Fever and other signs of dengue last for two to four days, followed bya rapid drop in body temperature (defervescence) with profusesweating.
y
 
This precedes a period with normal temperature and a sense of well-being that lasts about a day. A second rapid rise in temperaturefollows. A characteristic rash appears along with the fever and spreadsfrom the extremities to cover the entire body except the face.
