Currently there is no vaccine for dengue and no specific drug to treat dengue infection. Hence prevention is very important (when you travel to an endemic area or live in an endemic area).
There is no foolproof way to prevent dengue infection.
Ways to prevent dengue infection include:
•Take precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes and
•Control breeding of mosquito.
What you can do to prevent mosquito bites.
•Close the windows at dawn and dusk (active mosquito times) to prevent mosquitoes from entering your house.
•Wear protective clothing like long pants and long-sleeved shirts.
•You can apply permethrin (a common synthetic chemical insecticide) to your clothing and shoes.
•Clothes pretreated with permethrin are also available.
•Use insect repellent. DEET insect repellent is available as liquids, lotions, and sprays. Apply 10-30 percent DEET insect repellent on your exposed skin. Choose the concentration of DEET insect repellent depending on the hours of protection you need. Higher concentration of DEET, gives you longer protection.
•Do not allow children to wear shorts and half sleeved clothes
•Mosquito that transmits dengue infection usually lives indoor and is found in dark, cool places like in closets, under beds, behind curtains, and in bathrooms. Use flying-insect spray to kill mosquitoes in these areas.
•Use flying-insect spray in sleeping area to kill mosquitoes.
What you can do to control mosquitoes around your home
•Remove the place where they live and breed (i.e. their habitat).
•Remove standing water from places where mosquitoes can breed like gutters, old tires, buckets, plastic covers or any other container
•Clear and change the water in coolers, pools, rain barrels, and potted plant trays at least once a week to eliminate possible mosquito habitats.
•Regularly treat and circulate the water in swimming pool. http://www.onlymyhealth.com/how-can-one ... 2977600907
