Identifying Dengue

Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection that causes flu-like symptoms and can develop into a potentially lethal complication called severe dengue. According to health officials the most common symptoms are:

  • FEVER – around 40°C
  • WEAKNESS – intense fatigue
  • HEADACHE
  • PAIN IN THE BODY – behind the eyes and joints
  • RED SPOTS ON SKIN

If the sufferer also experiences vomiting, bleeding, intense abdominal pain, cold hands and feet, blue lips, or a drop in pressure they may have developed dengue hemorrhagic fever. In this case hospital care is necessary.

Always contact your personal physician when in doubt or suspicious of disease.
