Dengue fever is a sickness you can get from mosquito bites, and it's common in warm places. It's important to know the signs because it can become very serious. 7 warning signs of dengue fever are:

High Fever

Sudden onset of a high fever, often reaching up to 104°F (40°C), is a common early symptom of dengue fever.

Severe Headache

Intense headaches, often described as a severe frontal headache, are a common symptom.

Pain Behind the Eyes

Pain, discomfort, or pressure behind the eyes is another characteristic symptom of dengue fever.

Joint and Muscle Pain

Severe joint and muscle pain, also known as myalgia and arthralgia, are frequently reported in dengue cases.

Skin Rash

You might notice a skin rash, and it can look different. It could be flat and red (maculopapular), or you might see small purple or red spots (petechial). It can also be more widespread.

Mild Bleeding

Mild bleeding, such as nosebleeds, gum bleeding, or easy bruising, may occur. In severe cases, there may be more serious bleeding manifestations.

Persistent Vomiting and Abdominal Pain

Persistent vomiting and abdominal pain can be signs of severe dengue and may indicate complications.
