During monsoon, rainwater gets stagnated and thereby becomes a breeding ground for dengue fever, malaria, chikungunya and other mosquitoes that cause a number of monsoon diseases. The dengue virus is passed on to humans through the bite of an infective female Aedes mosquito, which acquires the virus while feeding on the blood of an infected person. Generally, a person suffering from dengue may see symptoms like fever, rash, body pain, vomiting, muscle and joint pains. But there is dengue that occurs without fever.
According to a BBC report published in the Journal of Physicians of India, people with diabetes, old age, and poor immunity may develop dengue without fever.
The symptoms of Ephebril dengue are quite mild and this type of dengue has very mild infection. The patient does not complain of fever, body pain, skin rash but if they undergo medical examination then there is a lack of platelets, white and red blood cells in their body.
It is advised to visit a doctor for a health check-up and get dengue fever test done. It is also suggested to follow the advice of the doctor as this may further weaken the patient’s immune system and will make his/her body prone to other diseases.
Follow healthy lifestyle, wear long-sleeve clothes, avoid stepping out during morning and dusk, do not let water accumulate in the vicinity, wash hands, use clean utensils, wear washed clothes and use mosquito repellants and mosquito nets, also take plenty of fluids.
