Dengue fever in Dominican Republican

Recommended Posts

My niece went on a cruise that visited Amber Cove and contracted dengue fever from a mosquito bite. They went on the waterfall excursion and she was bitten twice. She got very sick with high fever, rash, swelling of her face and stomach issues. She did not use any type of bug repellent. She had a great time on the trip and actually didn't have any symptoms until about 5 days later which is typical for this. Make sure to use bug repellent if going here.

And specifically one with DEET - some of the organic ones are not effective on these type of mosquitos.
