It is a common misconception that dengue reinfection is not possible and that you will get lifelong immunity if you get infected once. However, the truth is that not only can it be infected twice, but it can also be quite dangerous. There are four types of dengue virus: DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3, and DENV-4. If you are infected with one type of virus, you are unlikely to be infected with the same type of virus again. Therefore, you may be infected with other types of viruses. In addition, reinfection could also be serious.
Dengue can affect you as a common fever accompanied by severe headache, muscle aches, joint pain, discomfort and pain in the eyes, skin blemishes and vomiting. Or it can be serious and dangerous that destroys the vital organs of your body. In these cases, it could cause bleeding and death. Intense stomach pain, vomiting, suffocation, bleeding in the mouth, severe exhaustion, and blood stains from vomiting are some of the symptoms of this.
Places where water is stored such as the fridge tray, ponds and pots are the breeding ground for the Aedes mosquito that spreads dengue. They lay eggs in bodies of water and sources of dirty water. Cleaning the environment at least once a week is the best way to destroy the eggs of Aedes mosquitoes. Sleeping under mosquito nets is also an effective method. Although a dengue vaccine has been discovered, it is not really popular.
It is better to prevent dengue infection than to seek treatment after becoming infected.
