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?
