Hi @Aravi
Maintain a clean and mosquito-free environment. While treating dengue patients at home, it's important to prevent further contact with mosquitoes because the infection can spread from person-to-person via mosquitoes. In other words, controlling mosquitoes is key to preventing others from becoming ill.

Take dengue patients to the hospital daily. Dengue patients must go to the hospital every day to have their fever and blood count assessed. These daily visits must occur as long as the patient exhibits a fever of more than 37.5 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit). This monitoring at the hospital can cease after there has been no fever over a 48-hour period.

Ensure the patient gets sufficient bed rest. Permit the patient to slowly resume his previous activities, particularly during the long period of convalescence.

Give the patient Acetaminophen/paracetamol (Tylenol®). This medication will help treat the fever. Give one tablet of 325 to 500 mg. A total of four tablets can be given to the patient in one day.
Do not give the patient aspirin, ibuprofen, or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These can increase the risk of bleeding in those with dengue.

Encourage the patient to drink a lot of fluids. Patients should be encouraged to drink water, fruit juice, and oral rehydration solutions to prevent dehydration from fever or vomiting.

Keep a daily record of symptoms. Maintaining a daily record will help you observe any worsening of symptoms.

Take the patient to the hospital if her symptoms worsen. Head to the hospital immediately if the patient exhibits any of the following signs:[19]
High fever
Severe abdominal pain
Persistent vomiting
Cold and clammy extremities (could be due to dehydration or blood loss)
Confusion (as a result of poor water intake or blood loss)
Inability to pass urine regularly (at least every 6 hours)
Bleeding (vaginal and/or bleeding, bleeding from nose, eyes or gums, red spots or patches on skin)
Difficulty in breathing (due to fluid collection in lungs)

Good luck with your dad.

I will like to add some more information for others,

After dengue got cured... the patient need to recover platelets and WBC. Doctor use to give a medicine based on extraction of papaya leaves. Papaya is a very good platelets and WBC generator for the pre cured dengue patient.

The important thing in dengue is to take immediate dengue treatment. Once the virus is killed the main thing need to be focused is to improve your platelets and WBC.

Now my dad is ok, he is predicted to be discharged day after tomorrow.
