– Dengue disease is a mosquito-borne fever that is caused by one of four dengue viruses. Dengue infection is spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. While millions of dengue cases occur every year, most occur in tropical regions of the world.
– Generally, dengue symptoms in kids occur 4 to 7 days after a dengue mosquito bite. They include high fever, nausea, vomiting, rashes, headache, and more. Severe dengue symptoms may indicate a critical form of dengue disease called dengue hemorrhagic fever, or simply, severe dengue fever.
– While there are no licensed dengue fever vaccines in India as of now, researchers believe that the best dengue prevention and control method is to reduce mosquito habitats in high-risk regions.
– If you are searching to understand the dengue fever cure, it can be treated after receiving an accurate dengue diagnosis. Once you receive your child’s diagnosis, the pediatrician will recommend dengue remedies/ treatment options accordingly.
