How to diagnose Zika

Zika is diagnosed through a laboratory test. Your health care provider will determine whether you should be tested based on your:

  • activities
  • symptoms
  • pregnancy status
  • places and dates of travel

How to treat Zika

Currently, there's no cure for Zika virus. Treatment aims to relieve symptoms.

Avoid taking a pain reliever that contains acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) until infection with the dengue virus has been ruled out.
