Mosquito borne infections - Causes and Risk Factors

Mosquito borne infections - Treatments

With the exception of malaria, no specific treatment exists for most mosquito-borne infections, symptomatic treatment and supportive care is mainstay of therapy. 

Your doctor may recommend that you drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration from fever, poor appetite, vomiting and diarrhoea. You may be advised to rest 

Paracetamol may reduce fever and alleviate pain. In general, pain relievers that can cause increased bleeding – such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and diclofenac should be avoided.  

If you have malaria or severe infection, you may require care in a hospital for closer monitoring. In addition, intravenous medications and fluids may be required.
