Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Dengue fever is a type of viral fever and the treatment is just symptomatic.  Nothing else. So let the doctors take care of the patient. Do not interfere in the treatment process. Just ask the patient to drink plenty of fluids and have good diet. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety... It's an viral fever there is no specific treatment...treatment is mainly supportive and as he has jaundice it's better to stay in hospital till he recovers or atleast platelets starts raising... I would suggest you to trust your doctors they will be surely doing good to him..Regards.
