Cardiologist 's  Response
Shivering is also part of fever - muscles contracting in an attempt to produce heat / often we feel it before we feel the fever.
There is no specific treatment for Dengue. Symptomatic treatment and watchful expectancy is all important. We have to WATCH FOR BLEEDING - rash could be bleeding in the skin (purpura) > Your doctor is the best one to see and assess/ repeat platelets often - till a trend towards increase becomes clear.
Watch for new symptoms - cough etc - at this time, the virus is likely to wane and secondary bacterial infections may set in. Any change is a prompt to see the doctor again
Generally, she ought to do well
God luck
