Dengue Happen Twice: Can dengue occur again after being cured once? After summer, the havoc of dengue increases with the rains. Dengue is a serious disease in which there is continuous fever. There are some common symptoms of dengue. That is why dengue is called bone fever. Dengue is treated in the hospital but some such cases of dengue have also been seen in which the patient even dies. If someone gets dengue once, can he get it again? This question is often asked.

Can dengue occur again?

Dengue is a special type of virus. It can happen to a person again and again. It is not at all necessary that if someone gets it once, it will not happen again. Any person can get infected by the bite of the dengue mosquito Aedes aegypti. People who live in areas with more forests and vegetation are more likely to get infected with dengue again.

Dengue can take a serious form after getting infected again

According to the doctor, if a person gets dengue for the second time, it can take a serious form. Therefore, if you have already had dengue once, try not to get infected a second time. After surviving dengue once, the body's immunity becomes strong due to which you will remain safe from dengue for some time. But there is no evidence that after having dengue once, it cannot happen again.

According to the WHO report, there are four strains of dengue. However, all four serotypes are antigenically similar. After getting infected with any one of them, cross-protection can be obtained only for a few months. According to health experts, if you get infected with dengue for the second time due to any other serotype, it can be more dangerous. Every next infection of dengue can be more serious.
