My wife was admitted in hospital for 6 days and got discharged yesterday only. She was suffering from Dengue. As per the last blood report everything was normal except the SGPT count. As per doctor it will be taken care by medicines. She is still suffering from body ache and joint pain, specially in legs. Is their anything to worry about or it will go away with the time?

My daughter has been diagnosed with dengu with Dengue antigen test coming positive. The platelate count was 285 on 26th sep , 215 on 28th sep and 212 on 29th sep. It has been 7th days she is having continuous fever which goes up to 103 F and after a dose of Calpol 650 it comes down to 100-101. Doctor says the fever will subside in another 2-3 days and there is no need to panic as the platelate counts comes down in the first 4-5 days of the onset and afterwards it does not get affected much . What is your opinion and what should we do next? manish
