How to prevent dengue?


Prevention is basically by:


* Avoiding mosquito bites (by using mosquito repellents containing DEET, picaridin (KBR3023) or oil of lemon eucalyptus)


* Eliminating pockets of stagnant water that serve as mosquito breeding sites at home, workplaces and their vicinity,


* Not storing water in open containers. Covering all water containers with lids.


* Preventing mosquito entry by keeping doors closed and windows screened.


* Wearing protective clothing like long-sleeved shirts, long pants, socks and shoes when outdoors.


* Using mosquito nets at home.


* Scrubbing and cleaning margins of containers used for water (to dislodge the eggs of Aedes aegypti)


* Covering overhead tank to prevent access to mosquitoes.


* Aedes mosquitoes usually bite during the day; therefore, special precautions should be taken during early morning hours before day break and in the late afternoon before dark.


* There is no commercially available dengue vaccine (for dengue Flavivirus).

Never give Aspirin, Dispirin and Brufen tablets to the patient as these are known to increase bleeding tendency and also it increase stomach pain.
It also becomes difficult to detect Dengue in blood tests if the patient has taken these medicines.

Cleaning your surrounding is the key to prevent Dengue. You can remove still water from your surroundings which is the main source of mosquitoes. If you live in an area full of mosquitoes, make sure that you use products in your house that keep these small dangerous creature away. If unfortunate you are suffering from Dengue, then make sure that you eat properly to strengthen your immunity system.

Keeping your surrounding clean is the best possible manner to prevent dengue. At the same time, it's equally important to see that there's no stagnant water in your home and in the locality.
