A small insect can cause quite a bit of harm. Nature has many wonders, and some of them can be dangerous to humans. Even as the Omicron scare has increased among people, this new condition has left the people perplexed. Unfortunately, fever and body pains are common symptoms for both conditions, and this is leading to a lot of confusion among patients and doctors. However, doctors and health officials warn that one must not be lax if one develops fever and body pains. They say they must immediately consult a doctor and get tests done. Already there has been an increase in the number of people with Scrub Typhus. To date, 15 patients have reported the condition.
Another factor that is common among those with Scrub Typhus is that it affects children the most. About four children were admitted to the hospital recently with the condition. While two of them have been treated and sent off, two others are still in the hospital.
Usually, Scrub Typhus insects are found in homes, beds, house plants, garden plants, and in places that are wet. The condition spreads when the insect bites a person. Scrub Typhus insects look similar to bed bugs and can be seen during the nights. If the insect bites a person, he or she experiences high fever, severe body pains, and joint pains. In some patients, rashes have also been observed.
So, if you have any of the above-mentioned symptoms, do not delay and immediately consult the doctor for proper care.
