Chikungunya virus results in severe body and joint pain. Therefore, people who are suffering from repeated episodes of fever and other flu like symptoms accompanied with body aches, are mostly ordered this test. The infection also results in formation of skin rash and irritation. Physical examinations that reveal slight skin rashes are mostly proceeded to a chikungunya test.
Undergoing this test is simple and requires a small collection of blood sample. Your doctor may tie an elastic band on your upper arm that collects sufficient blood in your veins. A needle is then used to puncture the vein and thereby collect the required sample for testing.
No prior preparation is needed for this test. Post testing, patients may be required to wait for a day or two to get a detailed report analysis. Chikungunya is not potentially life threatening and if you are detected with the disease, medicines will be suggested that can minimize symptoms to a large extent.
Vaccines are not very much available for chikungunya. Therefore, controlling mosquito breeding is what that can help prevent the disease. Taking measures to prevent mosquito bites is the only measure to stop chikungunya.
