hello there.

dengue symptoms are fever with or without chills , body pains, headache, redness of eyes, weakness.
suggest you visit your doctor and get yourself examined and get a CBC, urine complete done. if platelet count is less, it points towards dengue, then you might need dengue serology done for confirmation of dengue diagnosis.
what you should do is for any such suspicious fever or fever with headache, just take paracetamol, don't ever take aspirin which is commonly used for headache by many as it may deteriorate your condition further.
drink lots of water and veggies and fruits
regards,
Dr Anil Jain
