There was a warning from the Centers for Disease, Control and Prevention on the latest health issue scare, the bug Triatomine, usually called as kissing bug. As per CDC it can kill humans.
Although the bug might seem completely safe and friendly, it isn’t because it transmits the dangerous Trypanosoma cruzi parasite. This is deadly when it enters the human body. This can cause Chagas disease and affect the lives of 8 million people everywhere.
Chagas disease can cause severe heart issues and even cause death. The signs do not show at first, but 2 months later after the bug enters. The signs are fever, headaches, large lymph glands, muscle pain, hard breathing. Seems like a flu and it cannot be seen at first.
Once this happens, the person also will have skin lesions and eyelid swelling.
About 30 percent of patients with this disease developed cardiac problems, while 10 percent reported to have problems with digestion.
For the time being there is no immunization but an early treatment is 100% effective as well.
