Hi Pam,
I had the Dengue last month. Not fun at all. I took local advice and drank alot of coco water and juiced starfruit(carambolo). I guess they helped. And lots of water too. The only medication was Tylenol. Maybe you know already but absolutely no aspirin. Dengue attacks your blood platlets and drives down the count. Aspirin lowers the platlet count and you don't want that. Electrolites are also a good thing. Good luck!
