Symptom differences between Zika, Chikungunya and Dengue fever

There is no commercial vaccine or specific antiviral drug treatment for dengue, chikungunya or zika virus infection.  People infected should be protected from further mosquito exposure during the first few days of illness to prevent other mosquitoes from  becoming infected and reduce the risk of local transmission.

Once a person has been infected,  he or she is likely to be protected from future infections of the same virus. Differential clinical diagnostic and co-infection  with other mosquito-borne diseases should be considered.

Treatment with aspirin and other and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) should be avoided because of a potential increased risk of hemorrhagic syndrome.This article is not intended to provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, but simply to provide information about the diseases. If you develop the symptoms described above and have visited an area where these viruses have been reported you must see a doctor to identify the disease and indicate the correct treatment. These are also diseases that must be notified to the health authorities, which is very important to scientific studies about these viruses. Public health Authorities will take action to mitigate the risk of local transmission.
