After recovery from Dangue still fever
My son had fever on 12 sep. We take medicine since 13 sep. When fever was not going down, CBC test done on 17 sep. In that test result parameters of WBC (2.0 )and Platelets (131) were below normal ranges than Dengue test also done which was Negative. We admitted my son in children hospital. After taking treatment of 2 days again CBC test done on 19 sep, this time WBC was normal but Platelets were 71 (earlier it was 131). Doctor said that it show symptoms of Dengue. Since 17 sep night my son had no fever. Today CBC test done all ranges within limit but after discharge from hospital (today) and after 17 sep night, my son has fever again today (21sep). Don't know What should I do ?

Hi, WBC recovers earlier than platelets hence the change in cbc reports. Dengue sometimes have biphasic fever and at times biphasic rash also. So long as the child is feeding well and passing urine 3-4 times/day you need not worry. Improving WBC infact is a reassuring sign that the child is recovering.  ( Read my article on Dengue- Google search Dr Abhishek Madhura and Dengue) The fever remission will take another 2-3 days.
Next Steps
Watch for oral intake and urine output. report bleeding from gums or urine immediately to the treating doctor.
