We understand the concerns that you feel
The mosquito that causes dengue fever or also called the Aedes aegypti mosquito is a mosquito carrying the dengue virus. This virus will cause someone to experience symptoms of dengue fever. If accompanied by signs of bleeding, the disease is referred to as dengue hemorrhagic fever.
Not all Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes carry the virus. Female mosquitoes have the potential to transmit the virus into the body, but not with male mosquitoes. Dengue virus has 4 types, including DEN 1, DEN 2, DEN 3 and DEN 4. If someone has an infection with one of these viruses, then the body will produce antibodies / immunity. Antibodies that have been formed can protect a person in the next exposure to the virus. Even if exposed and cause infection, generally the symptoms will not be too severe.
If found Aedes aegypti mosquitoes bite the surface of your skin, prevention of dengue infection should be done by maintaining immunity. There is no specific drug to treat viral infections. In addition, viral infections are self limiting disease, which means they can be cured by repairing the body's own immunity.
Here are the recommendations that you can take to take preventative measures and efforts to maintain the health of your immune system, namely:
Perform a healthy lifestyle
Eat healthy and nutritious
Expand the consumption of vegetables and fruit
Needs daily bodily fluids
Avoid stress and fatigue
Get enough rest at home
No smoking and alcohol consumption
Be diligent in washing your hands after doing activities and before eating
Safeguarding the environment with 3 M, closing water reservoirs, periodically draining the Bathtub, burying / recycling unused used items and potentially triggering standing water
Using bed nets
Using larvicide powder for mosquito larvae
Do not hang clothes carelessly and tidy up household appliances so as not to become mosquito breeding grounds
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
