Do I have the symptoms of Zika?

If you think you may have symptoms related to Zika (which can include rash, joint pain, and red eyes; also possibly muscle pain and headaches), you should contact your healthcare provider and avoid exposure to mosquitoes (see “What are the symptoms of Zika?”).

If you are ill and are worried you might have Zika or another mosquito-borne virus such as dengue, it is important that you be evaluated by a healthcare provider. Many of the initial symptoms of Zika are the same or very much like those of other conditions and require specific treatment (such as leptospirosis or dengue).
