My Fren Kena Dengue...

Yesterday, I visited my fren at GH Melaka, she kena dengue. Kesian dia. She was very weak as her low blood flow. Seeing her like no energy at all, no strength to control her own body. Till her gum bleed yesterday. Already 4 days she was admitted. Hopefully she's recovering. So where do dengue come from?

Dengue viruses are transmitted to humans (host) through the bites of the female striped Aedes aegypti mosquito (vector). Breeds easily during the rainy seasons but can flourish in peridomestic fresh water, e.g. water that is stored in plastic bags, cans, flowerpots and old tires.

Basically, dengue commences with high fever and other signs as listed above for 2 to 4 days. Then, the temperature drops rapidly and intense sweating takes place. After about a day with normal temperature and a feeling of well-being, the temperature rises abruptly again. One may feel exhausted for several weeks, most cases of dengue take approximately one week to recover. Once a person recovers from dengue, he or she will have antibodies in their bloodstream which will prevent them from having a relapse for about a year.

How about any treatment for denque?
There is no specific treatment to shorten the course of dengue fever. Medications are given to alleviate the signs and symptoms. Aspirin should not be given to patients. It will cause severe bleeding. It is advisable to take paracetamol to relieve muscle and joint aches, fever and headache. To be sponged down with water at room temperature using a wet, squeezed out towel for about 20 minutes at a time. This will help to help lower the high temperature.

Ice water should not be used for this purpose. The best is bed rest at it is essential to a speedy recovery and should consume plenty of water which will help to alleviate the illness. Should be kept in a room that has screens to prevent mosquitoes from entering or else under mosquito netting until the second period of fever has subsided.

Utilize cooking soda and h2o to your vegetation routinely. Just combine the two ingredients inside a apply bottle and mist the leaves of your plants and flowers. This combination acts as a organic anti--fungal treatment method. Damaging bug sprays might be eliminated if you utilize a cooking soft drink mix at least twice a week. [url=]Foli342334o[/url]
