"Noel got dengue fever in Thailand: ”the Half holiday is ruined”"

"During the Thailandsresan got Noel Helin, 8, severe headaches, a high fever and was so tired that he could barely talk. "

"At the hospital found that he suffered from dengue fever. "

"– We want more people to get the information about the high risk of dengue, " says his mother, Erika. "

"the Family Merman had looked forward to a relaxing holiday on the thai island of Koh Lanta, far away from the about the christmas stress at home in the Shed. "

"But after barely a week's vacation forced the family to switch the beach life to, hospital beds, drip, and constant worry. "

"Youngest child, Noel was suddenly weak, lost appetite and began to complain of headaches. When paracetamol didn't help, went the family to a hospital on the island. "

"– They explained to us that it is very much dengue fever right now. We took samples and it turned out it was dengue, which was behind noel's symptoms, " says his mother, Erika. "

"the hospital staff thought that Noel would be inserted immediately in order to be able to be kept under observation. Erika and dad Tommy took turns to sit in the hospital bed, and keep the son company. "

"– You get extra worried when it comes to children as there is a risk of bleeding and end up in shock, " says Erika, who is a nurse. "

"Erika and Tommy felt heavy to Noel infected with dengue. "

" We had been eyeing up everything. Purchased protective clothing against jellyfish and spritat hands in order not to be sick, " says Tommy. "

"– I grinade. I was very sad, it feels jättehemskt that have pulled there kids and so happen out for it here, " says Erika. "

"a Very common disease."

"Anders Tegnell, statsepidemiolog on Folkhälsomyndigheten, explains that dengue fever is very common in countries such as Thailand. "

"– It is one of the world's most common infectious diseases found in all countries with some warmer climates. It is spread by mosquitoes that do not exist in Sweden."

"According to Tegnell vary the severity and symptoms from person to person. "

"– the Symptoms are very high fever, very pronounced muscle and joint pain, you have a lot of pain in the body. Some people get a little rash also. Some get dengue without noticing it at all, while a few die of the disease. "

"In the most severe cases, the affected have both internal and external bleeding, lowered blood pressure, and end up in shock. "

"– Why some become seriously ill and others do not is unclear. There is a certain connection to if you have had dengue before, then you have a higher risk to become very ill, but not very much."

"the Reputation of the person who had dengue fever should never visit a dengueland again is, however, no one should listen to, according to Anders Tegnell. "

"– the Risk of becoming seriously ill is still very small. "

"There is no treatment for dengue, it is just the symptoms that can be relieved. "

"– It is about the need to protect themselves against mosquito bites. It is always a wise idea to bring mosquito repellent when you travel to these countries. At night you should sleep under mosquito nets or air conditioned rooms. "

"the Family tells us that they did not receive information about the risk of dengue fever prior to their journey, and would now like to draw the attention of others on the disease. "

"– We want more people to know about it here and have the opportunity to protect themselves. We talked with other tourists at the hotel and no one knew that there was so much dengue, or how to protect themselves against it, " says Erika. "

"the Tui, the Swedish travel company that is the largest in Thailand, invites its travelers to read about the country they are going to, but currently has no specific information about the dengue. "

"the Dengue fever is one of the world's most common viral disease that produces flu-like symptoms. "

"the Virus, which is available in four different variants, spread by mosquitoes and is found in many countries in Asia, Africa, central and south America."

"the most affected will be healthy, but the condition can become serious and require intensive care in the hospital. The disease usually goes on by itself, but the one that gets high fever during a trip abroad in the countries where dengue is to seek treatment right away."
