Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne disease caused by the dengue virus, commonly found in tropical regions worldwide. It is a distressing and disabling illness, with the pain likened to the sensation of bones breaking, earning it the nickname “Breakbone fever.”
Key symptoms of dengue fever encompass an abrupt onset of high fever (reaching up to 40°C or 104°F), chills, intense headache (often felt behind the eyes), muscle and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, flushed skin, and occasionally a skin rash resembling measles.
