Dengue Alert

Unable to update my blog for a week, I was down with fever and flu. The fever was high and we thought it was already Dengue. Thank goodness it was just the common influenza. A little rest and more vitamins were the things that I needed to feel better.

However, we can't deny the fact that the number of dengue cases this year were almost double based from last year's records. According to the news, a factor to consider was during the water shortage. More people made sure that they have sufficient water, so what they did was to stock water in containers. Clean water is the best breeding ground for dengue carrying mosquitoes.

How do we know if it's dengue? here are the symptoms to check out for:
  • High Fever
  • Body Rashes
  • Nausea and stomach pains
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Low platelet count
  • Nose bleeding
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or you see these symptoms in any of your loved ones; visit your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.
