Hi there.Thank you for your question.I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I will be posting my reply in a bit.
Sorry for the wait.
The incubation period for dengue is 4-10 days.
So symptoms happening immediately afterwards are highly unlikely due to dengue infection.
I would however like that you should have a complete blood count done.
If the platelet counts are low then I would recommend that you should be tested for dengue with a blood test.
The symptoms of dengue are nonspecific and can happen with a large number of other conditions.
The only way to be sure is to get tested.

Well, the thing is that the aedes mosquito has to have the dengue virus in it.
If it does not have the virus in it you will not get infected.
I would not worry so much.
I have seen and treated 100s of dengue cases.
Only rarely is it fatal even if you do get it.
More than 99% of people have full recovery.
I personally do not think that you have dengue.
