It is often quite severe, since it's by a second variant of dengue and you're very immune to the first, so your immune system may make you seriously ill. You'll know in a short time.

A positive antigen: Test certainly suggests active disease. While dengue is certainly not universally fatal there can be significant morbidity. There is no cure only supportive treatment to aid with symptoms. If you are otherwise healthy then you should do well but with very uncomfortable symptoms. Contact your doctor for close follow up. ...Read more
