Dengue, a viral infection, is caused by the bite of infected mosquito and female mosquito Aedes aegypti is its primary vector. Fever, reddish eyes, eye pain, headache, stomach pain, joints and muscle pain and laziness are primary symptoms of dengue fever. Dengue is sometimes fatal.
Dengue fever lasts for five to seven days. It can cause a drop in the counts of white blood cells and platelets, leading to the immunity loss.
