Frequently Asked Questions About Chikungunya Test
What is Chikungunya?
Chikungunya is a viral fever. This disease is caused when a mosquito named Aedes aegypti, also known as the yellow fever mosquito, bites and the virus enters our body. Chikungunya disease is not spread directly from human to human but when Aedes mosquito bites a sick person and then bites a healthy person, this disease spreads. When Chikungunya virus enters the human body, that person suffers from fever, cough, cold, body pain and joint pain.
Chikungunya virus causes disease symptoms similar to dengue disease, but Chikungunya fever is not fatal. Although this mosquito is small in size, its bite can cause serious and dangerous diseases. Recently another type of mosquito has been found to cause this disease. Usually this mosquito bites during the daytime, so it is important to take precaution against mosquito bite during the daytime.
What are the symptoms of Chikungunya?
Two to five days after the mosquito bite, symptoms of chikungunya start appearing. Key symptoms are as listed below:
- Fever for 1-3 days, pain in joints and swelling
- A sudden increase in fever with cold & shivering
- Dry skin
- A headache
- Pain in the eyes
- Loss of sleep
- Loss of appetite
- Rashes on hands and feet
- Bleeding from the nose and gums for some people
These symptoms are visible usually for 5 to 7 days, but the joint pain generally lasts longer. Some people may be more affected by the disease, such as infants, elderly people aged 65 years or over and those with other medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease. Such people should consult the doctor immediately upon the appearance of Chikungunya and should be treated with caution.
What are the possible treatment and prevention of Chikungunya?
It is important to consult a doctor when suffering from Chikungunya. Chikungunya can be handled with some home-remedies as well because medicinally it cannot be cured. Medicines are used to suppress and manage the symptoms. Along with taking drugs prescribed by the doctor, a patient should adopt the following measures:
- Drink warm water so that your immune power remains strong
- Consume milk, yogurt or other dairy products
- Consume juice of neem leaves
- Pay special attention to cleanliness of clothing and bedding
- Eat papaya and bitter gourd as much as you can
- Keep the area inside and around you always clean
- Do not allow water to stagnate in areas near your home
- Periodically clean the cooler, if not possible, put petrol in water once a week
- Use mosquito nets while sleeping
- Cover yourself completely when dressing to avoid mosquito bite
- Avoid consuming food or drink kept in open
- Keep windows and doors shut in the evening so that mosquitoes cannot enter the house
There is no commercial Chikungunya vaccine as yet to prevent the disease. Anyone living with the disease can become a source of disease for other people if a mosquito bites a healthy person after biting a patient. So if someone in your vicinity is suffering from Chikungunya, take special care to prevent mosquito bites, especially during the day.
