Dengue can weaken your immunity
According to health experts, dengue fever is a vector-borne disease caused by four different viruses, it is spread by female Aedes mosquitoes. Whenever the body is infected with the dengue virus, the immune response works together to fight the virus. The B-cells of the immune system produce antibodies that detect and neutralize foreign particles. However, the virus can weaken your immunity in the process, making you more likely to get sick or fall prey to other fungal infections.

People who already have comorbidities, if they get dengue, may be at risk of developing mucormycosis after recovery. People with weak immunity need to take special precautions. Black fungus can affect our ears, nose, eyes, some part of the brain. After recovery from dengue, if there is redness in the eyes, blurred vision, pain in the eyes or anything unusual, contact the doctor immediately.
