Thanks for the query

You already using medication for the allergy so there is no need for any further medication as they are contraindicated in dengue fever. The rashes will be subsequently reduce and will disappear. to know the progression of the treatment platelet count can be performed. no need for any further intervention. hope she will get fine soon
