Hello, I understand your feeling. We cannot confirm dengue unless and untill it is confirmed in the blood investigations. A same person can get infected once again with a dengue virus and may have symptoms because they are various strains of dengue virus. Yes increase in platelets count implies that the person is recovering from the condition. Thank you
