Hello there. 

I can understand your concern .
Dengue is a condition which needs only supportive treatment and there is no specific treatment for it.
The treatnent aims at controlling fever by tab. Paracetamol xr one in the morning half in the noon and again 1 in the night after food.
Cap. Absolut 3g twice a day after food.
Tab. Caripill thrice a day after food for 5 days.

Check platelets daily till improvement is double.
Drink plenty of water.
Bed rest.
Soft diet with fruits.
Consult  a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain Bangalore.
