Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi..., Dengue is a viral fever, the the infection results in the thrombocytopenia.. since she is having pain abdomen you need to consult a doctor... any internal bleeding in stomach, can result as pain, this will present as black tarry stool.... hence USG of abdomen is need.. also repeat the CBC and platelet count , to prevent such complications..
Hope I have answered your question..

Thanks for the query

Your daughter must be suffering from gastritis secondary to all the medications she has been taking and also in dengue low dose steroids are prescribed which can also lead to gastritis.
I suggest she take tab pantodac 20mg in the morning before food, if she doesn like tablets then she could take syp gelucil or mucaine gel 2tsp three times a day

Have a healthy living

Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Post dengue, there can be abdominal pain which is generally due to drug effects. However, it is diffucult to suggest on line and it requires to be seen by a surgeon/pediatrician to rule out any other cause which may merit intervention. Please see doctor.
Take care
