My child is detected +ve with NS1 antigen dengue on 4th day(monday) after he started getting fever. WE consulted our doctor who said that since his platelet count then was 250000 we need not be worried and gave us medecines (homeopathy) to control his fever and asked us to give crocin DS if the fever is 101F or more.Fortunately his fever dint rise so as to give him crocin.We again did his 2nd blood test on wednesday were again his platelet count has dropped to 188000 but our doctor said still there is nothing to worry as my child fever has subsided (he is still taking the homeopathy medicines) and he is eating well and quite active as well. Today again ie., on Friday we did his blood test and again his platelet count has dropped to 162000 but the doctor is still saying the same there is nothing to worry as long as my child is active and eating well which he is but we are worried as to how to increase his platelet count. His netrophils are 27.5 whereas the range shown on the report is 43.0% - 65.0% . Pls guide us
