hi michael !sorry to hear about your condition. i can understand your position. but sadly there is no specific treatment for dengue fever. you need to avoid contact with mosquitoes which bite during day time.symptomatic treatment for an acute episode with analgesics like acelofenac is the only mode of treatment at present
