Dengue Symptoms, Prevention & Treatment: All You Need to Know [Infographic]

Dengue has spread its evil clutches all over Delhi. In all probability, you know at-least one person who has suffered the wrath of the mosquitoes this season. But fear not, as we, referring to a government issued PDF (yes, the government we all love to hate does do some good stuff) have compiled an infographic explaining all you need to know about dengue symptoms, precautions to be taken and treatment and corrective measures.

The first part of the infographic tells you about simple steps you can take to prevent dengue, like covering yourself, using mosquito repellents and nets and not allowing water to stagnate.

The second part tells about the various dengue symptoms, like high fever, headache, body-ache and pain in the eyes, nausea, vomiting and skin rashes, following which you should immediately get yourself tested.

Lastly, if by some ill-fate, you do get dengue fever, you should get plenty of rest, eat a healthy, nutritious diet, and stay hydrated. The infographic also mentions a vital and not very well-known advice- Take ONLY paracetamol during this season to bring down fever and NOT combiflam, ibuprofen or aspirin.
