Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
Dengue in children is self limiting disease but children usually take longer time to fully recover, about few weeks. I do no think that this pain is due to dengue. Dengue is associated with fever, rash and joint pains. I suggest you get in touch with his pediatrician for his stomach pain. Thanks.
