Hello Tyas, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In patients with dengue fever, generally will be discharged if they do not have a fever (as evidenced by body temperature between 36.8-37.4 degrees Celsius) at least 2 days without the use of fever-lowering drugs, so the occurrence of post-treatment fever is not a normal thing to occur after treatment of dengue fever .
Therefore, it is highly recommended that you check your child's condition back to the doctor to re-evaluate whether the current fever is related to dengue fever that was previously suffered or caused by other conditions such as ARI, bronchopenumonia, urinary tract infections or infections in digestive tract. To find out if the condition is dangerous (life threatening) or not, all return to the cause of your child's current complaint.
For now, keep taking home medications given by doctors in accordance with his recommendations. It is not advisable to change or add medicine without a clear recommendation from a doctor, and immediately check your child's condition now to get further therapy. Also make sure your child gets adequate nutrition and fluids. If you have a fever, you can also help by compressing the forehead, armpits and groin. Keep monitoring your child's body temperature, and give fever relievers only if needed.
I hope this helps.
