    According to both the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, there is no specific treatment for dengue fever. The CDC suggests that people who think they have dengue should take a pain reliever that does not contain aspirin, rest, drink fluids and go to the hospital if symptoms get worse. The CDC and WHO both suggest that symptoms can be treated at the hospital and that treatment can prevent death, though neither specify what that treatment might be.

    According to PubMed Health, there is no specific treatment for dengue fever. PubMed Health states that fluids are necessary to in case of dehydration. In addition, it is recommended that people suffering from dengue fever should avoid aspirin. Rather, acetaminophen is used to treat a high fever.

    PubMed states that dengue fever is not usually deadly and only lasts for about a week or more and most people make a full recovery from the illness.
