    So glad you found the information useful! And yes sometimes as frequent travelers we forget about our healthcare and transmitting infections! Hopefully more people take the necessary steps to help stop the spread. Thank you for reading!

  2. Omg. This fear is so real! Even in my own home ground – dengue is something that worries everyone. Thanks for the tips!

    This post is sooo helpful! I currently live in Mexico and the mosquitos are ferocious! I’d never even heard of Dengue fever until recently when I started researching viruses carried by mosquitos and what to look out for, because I was being eaten alive when I first moved here. Now, I never leave the house without repellent. It has helped tons!

    Hi. I found this article through lauren, with whom i just spent a few weeks volunteering in myanmar at a school where there was a dengue fever outbreak. And it’s great someone wrote about it! As someone who’s been around dengue a while and who’s partner just had a severe case of dengue fever (despite taking most moskito “precautions”), at the time i would’ve loved to know more about the signs of it getting dangerous (more than the flue). Maybe you could add smth about that…? Like when to go see a doctor (e.g. nose bleeds, blood in urin…) etc.?

      Yes! Because it’s “hemorrhagic” fever (at least, that’s the other less common name for it) any signs of internal bleeding you need to go to the doctor straight away! This includes nose bleeds, bleeding gums, blood in urine, easy bruising, etc. Thanks for the recommendation! I’ll revise this post as soon as I get a chance 🙂
