Dengue Fever Essay – Signs Causes Effects and Remedies

Dengue Fever Essay

Although Allah Almighty has blessed the human beings in this world with innumerable blessings, at the same time, human beings have to face various trials and sufferings in every era. These include several natural disasters and various diseases and illnesses. Sometimes an earthquake occurs in a part of the country and causes destruction, sometimes floods cause so much destruction that it takes years to manage the situation. Sometimes an epidemic breaks out in a country and hundreds of thousands of people die.  

These disasters and epidemics do not discriminate between Muslims or non-Muslims or backward or developed nations. Developed countries quickly control the situation with their previous experiences, resources and planning, while in backward countries, the situation cannot be managed due to incompetence or corruption and they hope for help from other countries.

Dengue fever is also an epidemic, the fear and panic caused by it has worried a lot.

It is important to know what dengue is in order to be safe.  What are its symptoms and treatment and what are the preventive measures that can be taken to protect against this epidemic.


Dengue fever is spread by the bite of an Aedes mosquito. This indoor mosquito has black and white stripes on its body. This female mosquito injects the virus into the human body and when it bites a healthy person after biting a dengue patient, the same virus gets into the human body and it also starts to develop fever. This mosquito is up to ten millimeters long. Mosquitoes of this genus are usually most active just before sunrise and just after sunset.


Dengue fever has many symptoms.  Whenever any of these symptoms appear, a doctor should be consulted.

  • Within seven days of the mosquito bite, the fever starts, which is usually up to one hundred and two degrees Celsius. It can be more than that.
  • There is severe headache.  There is severe pain especially in the back of the eyes and in the joints of the body.
  • Hunger decreases and thirst increases.
  • Yes, it’s nauseating and the nausea starts coming. Vomiting occurs, the patient feels tired and nervous.
  • The eyes become red and red rashes appear on the body and itches.
  • Drowsiness occurs and the patient feels restless and moans constantly.
  • The patient has severe abdominal pain. 
  • Also lack of platelets and an excess of red cells are the main symptoms of this fever.
  • The most severe type of dengue is Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF), in which the patient’s gums and other organs bleed.


Ninety percent of the people who come to visit the patient give the patient some instruction about treatment and apply their own experiences to the patient. This is a false tradition. 

It is imperative that the patient and his family always follow the instructions of a qualified doctor or physician for the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. At the time of writing, the dengue vaccine has not yet been developed, but the recommendations given by the WHO for the treatment of dengue have increased in importance.

  • Get a blood test done.
  • The patient should be checked up every hour and if the platelets are low, a drip should be applied and blood should also be given.
  • Penadol or paracetamol are usually
  • prescribed to dengue patients. Give this medicine every three or four hours.
  • Give the patient plenty of juice, soup and water along with normal food.
  • Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen and steroids. 


Sometimes the fear of the disease becomes more dangerous for a person than the disease itself. The mortality rate of patients suffering from this disease is five to six percent, which can be brought up to one or half percent. For this, it is important that the people and the government should take the following precautions.

  • Protect yourself from mosquito bites on a personal level. Wear a full sleeve shirt. Use a mosquito net when sleeping.
  • Eliminate mosquito breeding and shelters. For example, keep the house clean of junk wood, shopping bags, broken dishes, toys, plastic and glass items. Sell or throw them away.
  • It is also important to be careful not to let water stand anywhere in pots, containers, buckets, bottles, waste drums, room coolers, etc. at home.
  • Keep used water storage containers and trash cans covered.
  • Spray the houses and keep the rooms closed with nets in such a way that mosquitoes do not have a way to enter the rooms.

Every year here, countless people die from malaria or hepatitis. But the terror of dingy is more than all these diseases. May Allah protect us from this deadly disease.
