Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
His platelets are very low.
You havent mentioned how dengue was diagnosed? Was there any test done?
It would be better to take him to a hospital near you and get it checked out and consider admission as the platelets are low.
Best regards.

No no need for admission. Provide complete bedrest watch for bleeding if bleeding starts due to any reason then platelet transfusion is must.
