Is it possible to get dengue twice? Is dengue worse the second time?
Hello, I am 28 years old female. My wife has been diagnosed with dengue second time in the last two months. My doctor said it is dengue. Is it possible to get dengue twice? Is the second instance of dengue more dangerous?
@syed-0 Yes, it is possible as the virus causing dengue fever comes in four strains, and immunity to one seems to make infection by a second strain more dangerous. Death happens if this second-time dengue two viruses has infected the patient. The other strains are much less dangerous.
