Chikungunya: The joint pain is the most distinguishing feature of Chikungunya. There is no antiviral drug or specific treatment which can cure Chikungunya. However, appropriate care to patients with chikungunya fever according to their actual clinical conditions is available.
See a rheumatologist for the evaluation and pain management.
