Past 2 days fever up to 102.5, body ache, headache, chills. Flu or dengue? I live in Asia. Advice for both is rest, fluids- worth getting dengue test?

In brief: Febrile illness

Please get checked because dengue can be serious and it's rainy season there now, so it's more prevalent.
It could be malaria too although I don't know if u live in the city or the countryside? You can look for small red spots in the skin which might indicate dengue. Anyway I really hope u can get checked now.
