U have not mentioned the counts,  so I'm assuming that they are normal. Since your child only has fever,  it is very likely that it is viral. Development of rash also points towards a viral fever In most cases of dengue,  child will have other symptoms like swelling over body, vomiting, pain in abdomen, loose stools, listlessness, breathing difficulty In viral fevers the fever subsides after appearance of the rash If you are still worried u can take a second opinion
