How to prevent dengue?
Hello, I am a mother of two daughter. As dengue cases are rising day by day, I am worried. I am a single parent. Please provide me some guidelines on how to prevent dengue fever?
@jaspreet Treat items, such as boots, pants, socks, and tents, with permethrin or buy permethrin-treated clothing and gear.
Permethrin-treated clothing will protect you after multiple washings. See product information to find out how long the protection will last.
If treating items yourself, follow the product instructions.
Do not use permethrin products directly on skin.
Use screens on windows and doors. Repair holes in screens to keep mosquitoes outside.
Use air conditioning when available.
Sleep under a mosquito bed net if air conditioned or screened rooms are not available or if sleeping outdoors.
Once a week, empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water, such as tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpots, or trash containers. Check inside and outside your home. Mosquitoes lay eggs near water.
