What precautions should be taken to prevent malaria and dengue?

Malaria and dengue are deadly diseases that are transmitted to humans by the bite of female mosquitoes. After the monsoon rains, the risk of malaria increases due to the breeding of mosquitoes. If you live in an area where these diseases are common, take the following precautions to prevent it. Keep the windows and doors of the houses closed in the morning and evening hours and if possible put nets on them. Use a mosquito net and spray it with mosquito repellent. If possible, use an air conditioner or a fan to keep mosquitoes away.

Do not go to places where there are bushes and standing water, because mosquitoes hover there and lay eggs. Eliminate places in and around the house where mosquitoes can lay eggs. Apply coconut oil on the swollen body parts, it acts as an antibiotic layer from morning till night. If someone gets dengue, keep green cardamom seeds on both sides of the mouth, be careful not to chew them. Keeping it in an empty mouth normalizes the blood cells and increases the platelets immediately. Papaya leaf juice mixed with honey should be given to dengue patient. In case of malaria or dengue, get treated as soon as possible.

Keep in mind that symptoms can appear one to four weeks after a mosquito bite. Its symptoms initially include fever, then headache and chills, but if left untreated, the disease can become serious and can even lead to death. In case of malaria or dengue, use only quality medicines, faulty or fake medicines can prolong the disease. Also, take full advantage of the health facilities provided by the government. If possible, contact the local administration and get mosquito repellent sprayed in your area.
