Brief Answer:
Platelet transfusion and RBC infusion needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can certainly understand your concerns.

I apologize for the delayed response owing to my work schedule.

Dengue fever is known to present with severe joint symptoms.

It can present with bleeding manifestation and skin spots.

This can be treated timely with platelet and blood transfusion.

Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if prescribe the same to you.

Further management if any is largely based on test results.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
