You’ve probably noticed in the news that dengue has become a major issue in many countries.
Sadly, all it can take is one bite from a mosquito that carries the virus. Most who contract dengue do not recover.
What are the symptoms of dengue?
- Sudden fever coming within 2-7 days of the mosquito bite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Severe headaches with pain behind eyes
- Nose and gum bleeding
- Skin rashes
- Easy bruising
- Joint and muscle pain
Dengue is not contagious; it cannot be spread from person to person but is only contracted after a bite from an infected mosquito.
Right now it has been reported in the news that there is no “cure” or vaccine found for dengue. However, natives in many countries have found that a drinking a blend of young papaya leaves in water has helped them recover.
