  Health Tip: Do I Need a Zika Test?
You may, if you meet these criteria

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Zika is a viral disease contracted from an infected mosquito.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests Zika testing if you:

  • Show any symptoms, such as red eyes, sore muscles, joint pain, rash, fever or headache. It's important to be tested, particularly if you are pregnant.
  • Visited an area where Zika infection is widespread.
  • Had unprotected sex with someone with symptoms of Zika, or who recently traveled to where Zika is widespread. You should be tested even if you don't have symptoms.
