What Are the Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections?
The symptoms of urinary tract infections include:
Pain or burning during urination
Abdominal pain in the area over the bladder
A need to urinate immediately, as soon as any urine collects in the bladder
Need to urinate frequently
Passage of small amounts of urine at a time
Need to get up from sleep to urinate
Low back or flank pain
Pain behind the scrotum
Painful ejaculation or, rarely, bloody semen
Symptoms such as fever or chills or nausea suggest the presence of a more serious infection, such as a kidney infection, and should receive immediate medical attention. Pregnant women may not have any symptoms of infection, so their urine should be checked during their regular prenatal doctor visits.
Dengue (pronounced DENgee) fever is a painful, debilitating mosquito-borne disease caused by any one of four closely related dengue viruses. These viruses are related to the viruses that cause West Nile infection and yellow fever.
Each year, an estimated 100 million cases of dengue fever occur worldwide. Most of these are in tropical areas of the world, with the greatest risk occurring in:
The Indian subcontinent
The Pacific Islands
