Malem I want to ask my child aged 1 and a half, now I have a fever and a fast heartbeat, what should he give

1 Answer:

Hello Yasmint Fuspiyanti,


Fever is an increase in body temperature above 38 degrees Celsius. Fever is measured using a temperature measuring device called a thermometer. Fever is the body's response to an infection and inflammation in the body. In young children, fever can also occur due to hot environmental factors or dehydration. An increase in body temperature of 1 degree Celsius can increase heart rate 8-10 times per minute faster than normal.


Fever in children very often appears accompanying diseases such as flu, diarrhea, dengue fever, typhoid, middle ear infections, pneumonia. Symptoms that can accompany fever include:

Children seem uninspired, lethargic
Shivering
The face looks red
Sweating

Handling a child's fever at home can be done by:

Warm compresses that are replaced periodically
When the child has a fever, wear thin children's clothing and don't cover it with a thick blanket
Persuade children to drink more water
Give fever-lowering drugs, for example paracetamol according to the dose adjusted for body weight / listed on the packaging

If the child shows the following symptoms, the mother should bring the child to be examined by a doctor:

Fever> 40 degrees centigrade
Seizures or there is a history of seizures
Age of children <6 months
Children appear to breathe fast or shortness of breath
Vomiting continuously
BAK volume is greatly reduced
Rashes appear on the skin
The child seems not fully aware

Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
