According to Medicine.Net the following are Dengue symptoms and signs:

After being bitten by a mosquito carrying the virus, the incubation period ranges from three to 15 (usually five to eight) days before the signs and symptoms of dengue appear. Dengue starts with chills, headache, pain upon moving the eyes, and low backache. Painful aching in the legs and joints occurs during the first hours of illness. The temperature rises quickly as high as 104 F (40 C), with relative low heart rate (bradycardia) and low blood pressure(hypotension). The eyes become reddened. A flushing or pale pink rash comes over the face and then disappears. The glands (lymph nodes) in the neck and groin are often swollen.
Fever and other signs of dengue last for two to four days, followed by a rapid drop in body temperature (defervescence) with profuse sweating. This precedes a period with normal temperature and a sense of well-being that lasts about a day. A second rapid rise in temperature follows. A characteristic rash appears along with the fever and spreads from the extremities to cover the entire body except the face. The palms and soles may be bright red and swollen.

Snakeweed or Tawa-tawa Remedy

Dengue can be cured naturally and you can do it at home. In the Philippines, herbalists use Snakeweed or Tawa-tawa, a common shrub that grows in patches of idle land. To make Tawa-tawa tea, wash up a bunch and boil everything, including the roots, and drink one cup 3-4 times a day. 

Gutierrezia sarothrae more commonly known in the US as Broom snakeweed was used by numerous Native American tribes for a variety of reasons. The Blackfoot use the roots of broom snakeweed in an herbal steam as a treatment for respiratory ailments. The Dakota use a concentrate made from the flowers as a laxative for horses. The Lakota took a decoction of the plant to treat colds, coughs, and dizziness. The Navajo and Ramah Navaho rubbed the ashes of broom snakeweed on their bodies to treat headaches and dizziness. They also chewed the plant and applied it to wounds, snakebites, and areas swollen by insect bites and stings. The Comanche used the stems of broom snakeweed to make brooms for sweeping their residences.

Papaya Remedy

Papaya has a cooling effect that helps to reduce heat in one's body and eliminate fever for the Dengue sufferer. Create a paste or juice some papaya leaves and have the patient consume 2 tablespoons for 3-4 days as needed. This remedy can increase platelet count and have fever subside just after a day.

Camote tops Remedy

According to Wikipedia: Sweet potato tops are excellent sources of 
anti-oxidative compounds, mainly polyphenolics, which 
may protect the human body from oxidative stress that
 is associated with many diseases including cancer and 
cardiovascular diseases.

To make a healing decoction, boil Camote tops in water for 5 minutes to extract the juice.
 Add a dash of salt to taste. The patient is made 
to drink slowly and gradually every 3 hours. The body's immunity 
system is thus revived, making dengue helpless against
 the body's natural defenses. Camote enables the body
 to heal itself.

Vinegar Bath Treatment

Instead of ingesting paracetamol or aspirin, it is safer and wiser to lower down fever by sponging the patient down with lukewarm (not cold) water with some vinegar in it. Never use rubbing alcohol because it can be absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin. It can also cool the body too quickly, which can actually raise one's temperature.

Utilizing our local flora is not only beneficial and economical, it can also eliminate side effects that can harm you and your children. There are remedies that are easily available even to the poor so there is no need to panic or go to the hospital and have a child confined. Doctors have advised bed rest and lots of liquids to rehydrate the Dengue patient. They say that that one simply had to run out the course for dengue. There was no outright cure. The only advantage of hospitalization would be the daily tests on blood and platelet counts. But alas there have been effective traditional cures and you have the freedom to use them and help your family heal naturally. We don't need to feel hopeless and helpless. We must make use of open source healing with just the use of Google or reading resources.
