What is dengue fever?

Dengue fever is caused by the dengue virus, transmitted by infected Aedes mosquitoes. There are four subtypes of the virus. Infections are more severe in immunocompromised individuals, the elderly, and young children. A second infection can be more severe due to cross-reacting antibodies from the first infection. Severe dengue fever can be fatal.

Symptoms of dengue fever

  • Fever

  • Headache

  • Muscle pain

  • Bloodshot eyes

  • Fatigue

  • Swollen lymph nodes, usually small swellings at the neck, armpits, groin and behind the ears

  • Eye pain

  • Nausea or vomiting

Questions your doctor may ask to check for dengue fever

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Do you have headaches or a heavy feeling in your head?

  • Do you have muscle pain?

  • Do you have bloodshot (red) eyes?

  • Do you feel you fatigued?

Treatment for dengue fever

There is no cure, and treatment is primarily supportive with fluids and painkillers. Severe cases require hospitalization for emergency treatment, which may include blood transfusions, close monitoring, and fluid replacement.
