Last tuesday morning when my eldest son Niko had a sudden high temperature fever and that got me worried because of the ongoing dengue epidemic, I took him to the doctor for a check up and the doctor instructed me to wait for 3 days after the fever started before we can go to the lab and get cbc and Dengue Duo.

Being a nurse we had studied a little about it and had experience patient with dengue but with my children having it I always panic, I know I get so worried whenever something not good happening to them.
The doctor only prescribed to drink plenty of fluids, rest and to take tempra or acetaminophen every 4 hours while waiting to get lab results and also recommended Pocari Sweat.
