Get Rid of Dengue Fever Naturally

Dengue fever is transmitted through bites from a mosquito. A mosquito can bite an infected person then act as a carrier to a healthy person. The disease cannot be transmitted from person to person, however. While some people may never show the symptoms of dengue fever, if symptoms are present they can be somewhat debilitating and include high fever, muscle pain and vomiting. While there is no cure for the disease except for time. If you feel you have Dengue fever and are also an individual with a weakened or compromised immune system you should seek medical care so that your doctor can help you watch for the signs of dengue hemorrhagic fever, a life-threatening complication of dengue fever. Most dengue fever treatments from traditional medicine are things like over the counter pain relievers, rest and fluids.

The key to preventing dengue fever is to control mosquitos. Make sure there is no standing water around your property and take steps to completely eradicate them when possible. Mosquito’s can be carriers of a number of different diseases, including dengue fever, so it is best to eliminate them when possible.

Make sure you wear mosquito protection especially if you are in regions where dengue fever tends to be prolific such as Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa.
