Phuket has been malaria free for decades. However, you should still take precautions against mosquito bites. After sunset, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, use mosquito repellent, or stay indoors or under a mosquito net. Anyone who develops a fever within two weeks of arrival should see a doctor immediately. If you come into contact with jellyfish, seek medical advice immediately.
Immediate aid: clean the skin with high-percentage alcohol, lemon juice or vinegar or moisten it with sand - this cleanses the jellyfish slime. Warning: do not use fresh water to clean the affected area.
- Bites from dogs or monkeys
Must be treated with tetanus and rabies injections by a doctor.
- Sexually transmitted diseases and HIV / AIDS.
Urethritis remains the most common treatable sexually transmitted disease among tourists in Asia. Gonorrhea from Southeast Asia is often multi-resistant. As syphilis becomes less common, HIV / AIDS is spreading at an alarming rate in most Asian countries - largely from unprotected sexual contact. The use of condoms is a must. This disease is endemic to Southeast Asia. It is caused by dengue virus, which is caused by the bite of an Aedes mosquito that lives in and around houses. The mosquitoes bite during the daytime.
Dengue infection often leads to a fever with bleeding in the skin and other organs (hemorrhagic dengue fever) in the locals, mostly children, which can sometimes be fatal. In travelers from non-endemic areas, the infection usually manifests as a fever with a rash on the skin, severe headache, and muscle pain (dengue fever), which is usually not fatal. Dengue infections are common in the rainy season (around May to September) when the Aedes mosquito is more common. Travelers should use mosquito repellent during the day, especially in the rainy season. Those showing symptoms of dengue infection should consult a doctor to determine the cause of the condition.
