Denque Awareness Month in the Philippines

by bhebotenchantress | Published: Jul 15, 2013

It’s that time of the year, when the rains come almost every afternoon and every day. With the rains, comes the chance of getting sick. The month of July is Dengue Awareness Month, spearheaded by the Department of Health (DOH). Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a tropical disease affecting most, if not all, of the South East Asian countries, but is also endemic in other parts of the world like South America. This disease affects close to 100 million people each year, with mortality rates high amongst the younger and older population.


Dengue is spread through the bite of the mosquito, Aedes Aegypti, which can be identified through their white stripe markings on their bodies. Since these insects thrive in areas where there are stagnant water, like upturned pails, or abandoned car tires, they can live up to four weeks during their lifecycle.


Most people tend to think that the mosquito itself causes DHF, but it is actually caused by the virus that it carries. Viruses are microscopic non-living things, that contain genetic material specific to a certain pathology, or disease. Once the virus enters the body, it immediately targets the platelets in our blood, which are responsible for sealing cuts and wounds in our body. Platelets are needed to prevent us from bleeding to death. Most patients who contract DHF do not die from having the disease itself, but from the complications the disease brings out like internal bleeding, sudden high fever, and very low blood pressure. Other symptoms include sever headaches, pain behind the eyes, sever joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, and skin rashes arise about three to four days after the onset of fever. Some patients even experience mild symptoms like nose bleeds, bleeding gums and easy brusing.


DHF is sometimes mistaken for a regular bout of flu, which has similar symptoms. DHF is characterized by three phases the body goes through. The first phase is known as the febrile phase, which starts about 7 days after being bitten by the mosquito. The febrile phase has the following symptoms:


1.      sudden fever

2.      headache

3.      mouth and nose bleeding

4.      muscle and joint pains

5.      vomiting

6.      rash

7.      diarrhea


The second phase is known as the critical phase, which can last up to 2 to 3 days. The critical phase has the following symptoms:


1.      hypotension (low blood pressure)

2.      pleural effusion (increase of mucous in the lungs)

3.      ascites (increase of fluid in the abdominal area)

4.      gastrointestinal bleeding


Finally, the last phase of DHF is known as the recovery phase, which can last a couple of days after the second stage. The recovery phase has the following symptoms:


1.      altered level of consciousness

2.      seizures

3.      itching

4.      slow heart rate


Although there is no known cure for DHF, there are several treatments that can be done for the patient that relieves the symptoms of the disease, like platelet transfusions, IV infusions, and complete bed rest. It is very important that the use of salicylate based drugs like Aspirin are avoided for patients who have DHF, since this drug prevents the body from producing platelets.


The most important thing to do is prevention. Preventing the mosquito from making homes in and around your house, and also protecting yourself when you are outdoors through the following measures:


1.      use mosquito repellents

2.      use chemical insect repellents that have the ingredeitn called DEET (N-N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide)

3.      wear protective clothing like socks, long-sleeves, and pants when outdoors

4.      Use protective screens for doors and windows, and mosquito nets

5.      Make sure that open containers of water in and around your house have protective complete covering, to prevent the mosquito from laying eggs in them



DHF is a highly preventable tropical disease, and if you follow the above mentioned ways to prevent it, you will be safe. Good health, and Good vibes!
