There is no reason to panic; with a little bit of precaution and rest, one can easily fight dengue fever. In this post, I want to share some of the quick and simple ways to fight dengue fever and get out of it easily.
According to World Health Organization (WHO), India is slated to be the country with world’s highest dengue burden, about 34% of all the cases occurring here. Mosquitoes are everywhere, in posh places and also in shabby areas. The mosquitoes breed where they get suitable living conditions like food and water. In Kolkata, recently dengue bearing mosquito larvae are found in the posh schools and homes too. And here, we’ll discuss how to prevent and fight dengue without fear.
So what is Dengue fever?
The World Health Organization says, “Dengue is a viral infection transmitted by the bite of an infected female Aedes mosquito. There are four distinct serotypes of the dengue virus (DEN 1, DEN 2, DEN 3 and DEN 4). The symptoms of the illness only appear 3–14 days after the mosquito bite and not immediately. Dengue fever is a flu-like illness that affects infants, young children and adults alike.” Dengue is a very severe and critical issue which requires immediate treatment.
What are the symptoms of Dengue fever?
The most common symptoms include fever, headache, nausea, joint pain and skin rash. But these symptoms are common for normal flu as well. However, if you have any of the following symptoms, then consult doctor without any delay.
- Sudden, high fever
- Severe headaches
- Pain behind the eyes
- Severe joint and muscle pain
- Fatigue and exhaustion
- Nausea and vomiting
- Skin rash
- Low blood pressure
How to prevent and fight dengue fever?
Preventing and fighting dengue fever is easier. Here are some of the best ways to fight dengue fever easily.
- If you have any empty pails, buckets or containers where water is stored, then empty them and turn them down. If you cannot empty it, then cover it with thick protective lids.
- Clean empty flower pots, and do not overwater them. Excess of water may get stored near the plants, and this is a potent breeding ground for the dengue causing mosquitoes.
- Use screens on your doors and windows and make sure there are no holes on the screens.
- Apply mosquito repellents on all exposed areas. There are certain mosquito protection ointments; you can apply them on your skin too.
- Always sleep under a mosquito net, as during sleep, the chances of getting mosquito bites are high.
- Use mosquito repellant plants like tulsi, mint, marigold, and neem. These plants can repel the mosquitoes from your house.
- You can use certain extracts of essential oils like, tulsi, lavender, neem and mint. The mosquitoes cannot endure the smell of these plants and they eventually leave.
- If you have a garden around your house, then trim it. Do not let weeds and other unwanted plants grow near your home as these are the favourable grounds of the bugs.
- You can use mosquito repellant sprays that are available in the market, but you must not use them in front of children.
- Clean the interior and the exterior of the house regularly so that the mosquitoes do not find any proper place to hide.
- Close the windows and doors after evening, as this is the high time when mosquitoes enter the home.
These are some of the ways by which you can prevent the dengue from attacking your home. You can take help of the professional pest exterminators who will use proper chemicals and pesticides to remove the mosquitoes. They are professionals, and they use eco-friendly chemicals so that your home environment is safe and hygienic.
