Homeopathic Remedies for Chikungunya and Dengue   Chikungunya and dengue are viral diseases spread by mosquito bites. While chikungunya and dengue are transmitted from the aedes aegypti mosquito, recent report from the Pasteur Institute in Paris claims the mosquito mutated and now can also be transmitted by aedes albopictus (Asian tiger mosquito). The name chikungunya is derivative of the Makonde word meaning ‘that which bends up’ with reference to the stooped posture developed resulting from the severe arthritic symptoms of the disease.   Symptoms of Chikungunya   Sudden onset of flu-like symptoms including: severe headache, chills, fever higher than 40°C or 104°F, joint pain, backache, nausea, vomiting, petechial or maculopapular rash usually involving the limbs and trunks. Joints of the extremities in particular become swollen and painful to the touch. Conjunctival infection and slight photophobia, redness of eyes may be the first symptom with perhaps a difficulty in looking upward.

Symptoms of Dengue   Sudden chills with high fever, intense headache, muscle and joint pains which make one immobile. Retro-orbital pain and photophobia develops within 24 hrs of the onset of preliminary symptoms. Other symptoms include: extreme weakness, anorexia, constipation, colicky pain and abdominal tenderness. Some cases fever is typically followed by a remission for 2 hrs to 2 days. The rash may be diffuse flushing, mottling, or fleeting pinpoint eruptions on face, neck and chest during the first half of the infection and a conspicuous rash that may be maculopapular or scarlatiniform on 3rd or 4th day. Fever may last for about 5 days. Homeopathic Treatment   Pertinent individual treatment is the heart of homeopathy. Rather than administering medicines geared toward the disease, homeopathic treatment targets the disease based on symptoms which vary from person to person and also to the degree they are present. That is one reason why it is near impossible to develop any random controlled trails in homeopathy. But, over the years, experience has taught the homeopaths that in cases of acute epidemics – the symptoms are essentially same and so can be treated with one remedy or few key remedies.
