Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

IgG and IgM are antibodies, these are formed by the body in response to different circumstances including infection.
IgM is formed when a person becomes infected acutely (in the initial part of the infection) and IgG is formed after and it may remain.

The presence of the IgG may indicate that you had a previous infection with dengue.

The fever and cold symptoms are likely related to one of the viruses that can cause the common cold. The symptoms are treated symptomatically.

You can use antipyretics to treat the fever and antihistamines , decongestants and cough medication to treat any additional symptoms.

Fluid and rest would also be important.

I hope this helps
