Malaria, Dengue and Chikungunya are common diseases but can be debilitating and life-threatening if not treated judiciously. We must, therefore, be vigilant when such diseases are around us. When you are faced with such a disease in your family, you must consult your doctor without delay. 

What we can do: bed rest, temperature charting, hydrotherapy, if fever is very high are key actions to be taken. Plenty of oral fluids, (water, ORS, coconut water, fruit juices etc must be taken. There is no restriction on food.
