I was a military member that was diagnosed with Dengue Fever back in 2003. Since then I have skin reactions to the sun and had surgeries on my knee and shoulder. I was an active person but my injuries we sustained while performing normal activities, i.e., walking and sleeping. I need to know if there is a clinical link between Dengue Fever and my skin reactions and cartilage tears. Also, is there a link between Dengue Fever and bone calcification (if possible)?
