A.Gopalakrishnan, Principal in-charge of the college, led a team of homeopaths in distributing free pills to 4,502 people inside the Goripalayam dargah.
Dr.Gopalakrishnan is quoted as claiming:
“It is a very effective medicine and we are distributing it free of cost. It has to be taken for three consecutive days,”
Dengue Fever is virus-caused disease that is spread by mosquito bites it begins with a sudden high fever, often as high as 104 – 105 degrees Fahrenheit, 4 to 7 days after the infection.
A flat, red rash may appear over most of the body 2 – 5 days after the fever starts. A second rash, which looks like the measles, appears later in the disease. Infected people may have increased skin sensitivity and are very uncomfortable. Other symptoms include: Fatigue, Headache (especially behind the eyes), Joint aches, Muscle aches, Nausea and Swollen lymph nodes.
There is no specific treatment for the disease and the condition generally lasts a week or more. Although uncomfortable, dengue fever is not deadly. People with the condition should fully recover.
There is no evidence to suggest that homeopathy can do anything to prevent or treat dengue fever but people may mistake the natural course of the illness for the remedies working.
