Hello there. I can understand your concern. The temperature is too high, instead of dolo650, i would encourage you to give her tab. Paragreat XR twice a day after foods. She should have a semi solid diet along with lots of water and other fluids like coconut water, electral, fruit juices etc. Give her a tab. Caripill one tab thrice a day after food for 5 days. Do tepid sponging and keep a watch on her temperature. Measure it every 2-3 hours and maintain a temperature chart. Consult a physician in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Hello Dear, There is no specific diet modification in dengue. However, she must have healthy food. Encourage her to eat proper meals. This is the only sure way to improve and maintain the platelet count. You can repeat Dolo 650 upto three times a day without any harm. Repeat her CBC after a week. She should improve till then and all her counts should be better
