Dengue Fever And It's Homoeopathic Treatment

Date: Nov 17, 2021

Dengue: It is an acute infectious disease caused by a flavivirus (species Dengue virus of the genus Flavivirus), transmitted by aedes mosquitoes, and characterized by headache, severe joint pain, and a rash. Dengue is caused due to four viruses namely- DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3, and DENV-4. The virus enters a mosquito when it bites an already infected person. And illness is spread when it bites a healthy person, and the virus spreads through the person’s bloodstream.

Once a person recovers, he is immune to the specific virus and not the other three types. But the probability of developing severe dengue fever, also known as dengue Hemorrhagic Fever, increases if you are infected a second, third or fourth time.
