In brief: Dengue rashes

Dengue doesn't usually cause itching.
In fact, those rashes are "petechial" which means they are like small bruises. If u press on the rash, it won't go away either. The rashes can be worse around the lower legs, belt line, or areas where compression from clothing might have occurred. Dengue is serious so I hope u can see a doctor.
