A member asked:

I don't believe in unnecessary medical treatment. do i really need to treat dengue fever?

Usually not: Most cases of dengue fever resolve spontaneously, and since it's caused by a virus, there is no definitive treatment anyway. In rare cases of *dengue hemorrhagic fever*, however, treatment is mandatory.

YES: Treatment includes tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever and hydration. Careful watching for any adverse effects.
