Regular fever is described as a condition in which our body’s temperature is higher than regular body temperature. Fever may occur to anyone at any age. Dengue fever on the other hand is a fever that is caused due to mosquito borne infection and can lead to a severe flu like illness. Dengue fever is caused by the virus that is spread by Aedes mosquitoes. Regular fever may be simple but dengue fever is the most dangerous form of fever.
Dengue is a viral infection that is transmitted by the bite of female mosquitoes. Dengue fever is like an illness that affects everyone, right from infants to adults.
When asked about the signs and symptoms of Dengue to the Doctors from KRIMS Hospitals (which has one of the best Orthopaedic Doctors in nagpur), they said that the most common Dengue symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains etc. Many a times it happens that these symptoms are confused with common flu, but if one is experiencing these symptoms for many days then they must consult their Doctors at the earliest. Doctors diagnose the person who has the Dengue infection with blood test. When you are infected with the Dengue virus, you are advised by the Doctors to drink plenty of fluids.
Dengue is a disease that doesn’t spread from person to person. In order to prevent Dengue, we must keep our surroundings clean as Dengue is caused by mosquitoes and mosquitoes are born in bad surroundings. Generally Dengue mosquitoes are born in clean stagnant water. So you must make sure that you regularly dispose the stagnant water as they are at the risk of carrying the dengue mosquitoes. Also you could keep mosquitoes away from your house by keeping mosquito repellent plants like lavender, catnip, feverfew etc. These plants act as natural repellent for mosquitoes and keeps them away from your house. Also you must properly drain the potted plants by scrubbing them properly to get rid of the eggs present in them.
