Thanks for the query.
It is common to see the effects of dengue that is leg pain,joint pain and swelling until a year after being afflicted.It will slowly reduce in a few months.To reduce the pain you can use pain balm , heat compresses etc..Massage the joints with oils , these can be got in any aromatherapy store .These can be lavender, eucalyptus,peppermint,rosemary or you can ask for a combination of all these in aromatherapy stores.Do not worry till then.
