Mosquitoes are notorious for their disease-carrying capabilities. They are responsible for transmitting humans with a variety of potentially dangerous and deadly diseases. This article discusses some viral diseases that can be transmitted from mosquitoes to humans. The list of mosquito transmitted viral diseases includes malaria, dengue fever, several forms of equine encephalitis, West Nile virus and yellow fever. 

Malaria 

Malaria is one of the most common infectious diseases, which is spread by the bite of an infected female Anopheles mosquito. The disease is connected with a wide range of symptoms, from body ache and fever to serious infection that leads to coma, seizures and even death. 

Dengue Fever 

Dengue fever is an acute viral infectious disease caused by Aedes aegypti, a domestic, day-biting mosquito. Infection with dengue viruses produces a variety of illness ranging from vague sickness to fatal blood disease. Common symptoms include swollen lymph nodes, high fever, muscle aches and pain, rash, weakness, nausea and vomiting. 

Encephalitis 

A viral disease, Encephalitis is transmitted to humans through the bite of mosquitoes. It reasons severe inflammation of the brain that may lead to eternal brain damage. The majority viral encephalitis infections don't create any symptoms at all. It only leads to common flu-like symptoms such as headache, fever, malaise and muscle ache. In rare cases, it may direct to severe symptoms such as stiff neck or back, high fever, vomiting sensitivity to light and confusion. 

West Nile Virus 

West Nile virus (WNV) is a potentially serious illness. Generally, people infected with the virus will not develop any symptoms at all. However, the possibility of severe illness and death is highest for people over 50 years old. Fatal encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) is the most serious symptom of WNV infection. 

Yellow Fever 

Yellow fever is a tropical disease transmitted between humans by mosquitoes. It occurs only in tropical South America and sub-Saharan Africa. People with mild symptoms of yellow fever may experience fever, bloody nose, headache, nausea and slow heartbeat. The severity of the disease is ranging from an influenza-like syndrome to hemorrhagic fever and severe hepatitis. 

Other viral diseases that are transmitted to humans from the bite of mosquitoes include epidemic polyarthritis, Rift Valley fever, Ross River Fever and Barmah Forest disease. 

It is advisable to use natural mosquito repellents 
 such as the Skin Armour Deep Woods Outdoor Soap, which contains in it a protective shield to safeguard you from many serious illnesses due to mosquito bites
