Traveling, and taking a family vacation, always seems like a great idea, especially when you are going overseas to experience beautiful beaches and new adventures. That is, until you come across mosquitoes and they start to bite you. This can turn into a dangerous situation, since getting a mosquito bite can actually make you extremely sick.

Mosquitoes are not only annoying, as they tend to bite at all times and all places, but they also can carry harmful diseases with them, such as the Zika virus, Dengue, and Chikungunya. Getting a mosquito bite is no longer an issue of being itchy, now you need to worry about the dangers that it may have on the health of you and your family.

The Zika Virus can cause a fever, rash, joint pain, and pink eye. These symptoms can last for anywhere from several days, to weeks. It has been reported many people who become infested by the Zika virus end up hospitalized. Although death due to the Zika virus is rare, it is important to remain protected when you are outdoors at all times, especially if you are traveling overseas.

Not only can the Zika virus make you extremely sick, if you are trying to conceive a baby or are pregnant, it can cause birth defects to your unborn child. For this reason, doctors recommend that women who are pregnant do not travel to any areas that have reported an outbreak of Zika. If a pregnant woman must travel to an area that has reported a Zika outbreak, it is recommended that she follows all her doctor’s recommendations, and avoid mosquitoes as much as possible.
