Know Dengue Prevention
The most important aspect that must be understood is that ‘Dengue is not an air-borne disease’, it is vector-borne where the vector is a host mosquito. This means that as long as we stay away from mosquitoes, we have no risk of coming in contact with dengue. So, ensure that there is no stagnant water in and around your place of habitation. If your locality happens to have an issue with mosquitoes, alert your city corporation to take care of the issue by spraying insecticide or ridding unwanted stagnant water. Ensure that any form of mosquito repellent is used to avoid risking single perpetrator for dengue from coming into your home.
Those who suspect that they are a victim of dengue are advised to avoid ibuprofen, Asprin or Asprin containing drugs. Drinking lots of water and rest is also crucial. Of course, it is necessary to consult a physician as soon as possible.
Since dengue is a virus caused disease, there is no specific antibiotic to treat it. Doctors can only treat the symptoms. This is why it is important to take precautions against dengue as it is a potentially life-threatening disease.
Hopefully, this article reminds us all how seriously dengue should be taken and what to look out for. Rest and hydration are very important when it comes to curing the deadly disease. Hopefully, science guides us to a cure soon, but until then, prevention is better than cure!
