A92.5: Zika virus disease

You have been infected by the Zika virus.

The Zika virus is transmitted by mosquitoes. The virus occurs in America, Africa and Asia, for example. You can get infected by being bitten by an infected mosquito. You can also be infected if you have sex. If you are infected while pregnant, the virus may also be transmitted to the child.

The Zika virus may not cause you any problems. You may also have fever, headaches and soreness in your limbs. You may also experience changes to your skin or your conjunctiva might become inflamed. The transparent conjunctiva covers the eye and the inside of the eyelids. Along with the tears, the conjunctiva forms a liquid film on the eye. Together, the conjunctiva, the eyelids, and the liquid film on the eye all protect the eye from external agents. The conjunctiva also helps defend against pathogens. When it is inflamed the conjunctiva may become reddened. Your eye may also water or get stuck. If the virus is transmitted to the unborn child, it can cause congenital defects and impaired development.
