Warning Signs of Dengue Fever in a Child

The dengue virus spreads through mosquito bites. Dengue, also known as break-bone fever, is typically found in tropical regions of the world, especially during the monsoon season when the climate is warm and muggy.

The Aedes mosquito, which can be found globally in tropical and subtropical regions, is the primary vector of dengue disease. An Aedes mosquito becomes a carrier of the dengue virus when it bites a person who has the disease. Although the virus cannot be passed from one person to another directly, the Aedes mosquito does. This mosquito can contract the dengue virus when it bites another person.

Adults, children, and members of any other group can all contract the virus. However, because they play outside and are less knowledgeable about the specifics of these mosquito bites, children are more prone to contract the disease.

Prevention 

  • These precautions must be done both inside and outside the home because the first mosquito vectors bite throughout the day.
  • Wear long sleeves and close your windows to keep mosquitoes out of your home.
  • Regularly monitor your surroundings for locations with standing water.
  • Using personal defences like window screens, repellents, coils, and vaporizers within the home.
