Dengue and Malaria are diseases that affect s number
of people due to the fact that this is primarily transmitted by mosquitoes.
These diseases attack the immune system of the patient making him/her weak to
fight further infection that may come his/her way. I just dread this because
the fatality level of these diseases are actually escalating as time goes on.
There are a number of ways to protect yourself from these ailments; first you
can go and get a vaccine that will boost your immune system against dengue or
you can repel those dengue mosquitoes away.
And since I do like herbal homemade remedies, my go to solution for this is to make
and use herbal mosquito repellent.
