It must be dengue although sometimes it happens that the test for dengue is negative though you may suffer from dengue. Give plenty of fluids. Visit nearest doctor. Don't ignore if there is any bleeding from any orifice of body. Avoid toothbrushing. Get well soon dear.

You will benefit by identifying cause of your allergy and then planning treatment, mean while avoid dust exposure, tell in your home or office to do wet mopping of floors and surfaces instead of dusting dry. Use face masks in dusty outdoors, regular washing of beddings and pillow covers in hot water and drying in sunlight.

While some people realize that they have genital herpes, many do not. It is estimated that one in five persons in the United States has genital herpes; however, as many as 90 percent are unaware that they have the virus. This is because many people have very mild symptoms that go unrecognized or are mistaken for another condition or no symptoms at all

First you should know the cause then you should use medications. Usually dispirin acts very fast but you should not take it without knowing the cause as it has side effects also. So you should consult a doctor first.
