Time to put this falsehood to rest:

What is the Treatment for Dengue?

There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. People who think they have dengue should use analgesics (pain relievers) with acetaminophen (Tylenol) and avoid those containing aspirin. They should also rest, drink plenty of fluids, and consult a physician. If they feel worse (for example, develop vomiting and severe abdominal pain) in the first 24 hours after the fever declines, they should go immediately to the hospital for evaluation. See your doctor if you suspect that you have dengue.
