ChikunGunya - what are the long term effects?

I had chikun guniya once and I was treated with mild prescription. It then relapsed after few months and I was put on steroids for an year. Now I am totally cured of the virus and also I dont have joint pains anymore.

What are the long term effects? am i prone to arthritis sooner? would I develop any joint or other problems or pains?

also I have a lot of acne marks on my body. could this have caused due to chikun guniya side effects?

Hi there!

Long term effects of chikungunya are not known, though there is no increased risk of developing arthritis later in life. Acne marks is not a symptom of the condition.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
