Dengue : Prevention & Ayurvedic Management 

What is Dengue??
            Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection, found in tropical and sub-tropical climates worldwide, mostly in urban and semi-urban areas. The virus responsible for causing dengue, is called dengue virus (DENV).

Causes of Dengue??
            Dengue is caused when a mosquito bites an infected person, picks the virus and then bites someone else, thus passing the virus from one person to another.

Is Dengue dangerong in Pregnancy??
            A pregnant woman already infected with dengue can pass the virus to her fetus during pregnancy or around the time of birth. Dengue can have harmful effects, including death of the fetus, low birth weight, and premature birth.

Dengue in Children-
            Symptoms of dengue in children and those who have acquired the disease for the first time may be mild. Dengue symptoms in children are almost the same as in the young and in adults. A very high temperature in children can sometimes lead to fits or convulsions.

Risk Factors in Dengue:
            Children and old people are vulnerable to dengue disease. A small percentage of people suffering from dengue fever can develop a more serious form of the disease known as dengue hemorrhagic fever. The dengue hemorrhagic fever can trigger dengue shock syndrome.

Preventive Measures:
