Dengue Fever Topic Guide
Dengue Fever: Dengue fever is a disease transmitted to humans via mosquito bites. Dengue fever symptoms and signs include rash, fever, headache and joint pain. Diagnosis may involve a complete blood count and spinal tap to rule out other diseases. Adequate hydration and pain-control medications will help to manage dengue fever symptoms.
Joint Pain Joint pain can be caused by injury or disease affecting any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the joint. Pain also occurs with joint inflammation (arthritis) and infection. Joint pain symptoms can be associated with local warmth, swelling, and tenderness. Treatment depends on the cause and can include rest, cold applications, medications, physical therapy, or surgery.
