Detailed Answer:
Thank you for query.

I saw the message. You haven't mentioned whether you have sore throat or not.
You can take betadine gargle twice daily. You can take syp syp Allex 10ml twice daily, but these medications are available only with doctor's prescription.Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid citrus fruits and juices.
If fever is persistant get dengue profile done.

Get back if any query.
