Hello.. Yes it's better yon consult the doctor back since he's having more symptoms...yes it's batter to wait for atleast 3-5 days after onset of fever to do dengue test as the test will come positive only after so many days if it is there.drink water or ors well...hydration is the key in viral diseases.thank you
