It is dengue fever as platelet is decreasing and NS1 is reactive. Management is purely symptomatic but you need to hospitalize her immediately. Make sure she didn't get any injuries.

As per my knowledge, there is no medicine which increases the platelet count in allopathy. However, Ayurveda suggests papaya leaves are known to increase platelet counts. There are preparations also available for its extracts, so you can start it at earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
