Best homeopathic medicines for dengue fever
Dengue fever is an acute infection caused by Aedes mosquito . This breakbone fever dramatically increases day by day in various parts of the world especially in tropical as well as subtropical regions. Experts divide dengue into two categories. One is named “Mild Dengue Fever” in which the patient experience high fever with rashes and joint pain. Another is named as “Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever” in which the patient experience very high fever with serious bleeding and unexpected low blood pressure and in some cases sudden death.
As mentioned above, Dengue fever is caused by the sting of Aedes mosquito which is already infected by a dengue virus. So this mosquito gets infected when it bites the already infected patient with the same virus. Thus, it is true to say that the dengue virus cannot escalate directly from person to person.
