How do I manage dengue fever on a daily basis?

Daily management of dengue fever requires drinking plenty of liquids, using acetaminophen, and getting rest. Dengue fever can cause high body temperatures and vomiting which in turn causes loss of fluids. It is very important to replace those fluids and avoid dehydration, which may create more severe complications.

Acetaminophen helps treat the joint pain and headaches that accompany dengue fever; it will also help to reduce your high body temperature. It is also necessary to get as much rest as you can. Rest will help your body recharge and make it possible to fight the virus.
