Having a history of complaints of diarrhea / diarrhea with blood since 1 week ago and is now accompanied by fever, this condition shows that your baby's health (general 1 year) has not recovered and has not improved. If at this time your baby's body temperature is still 38 degrees, then the body temperature including heat and this is quite disturbing and risky for your baby, both at risk of causing dehydration or possibly febrile seizures when your body temperature rises again, even though you have given paracetamol.
Complaints about diarae or diarrhea that have been running for 1 week, indicate that your baby's digestive condition has not improved, this risk also causes:
1. dehydration or lack of fluids
2. child looks weak
3. decreased body weight
5. decreased appetite
6. the nutrition of the food consumed cannot be absorbed properly
Giving paracetamol alone cannot help prevent the risk of dehydration and body fluid balance, especially if your baby's illness has lasted for 1 week. Better efforts need to be considered, one of which is by consulting your family doctor who treated your child before or your child's specialist doctor.
Consult or check your child's health condition back to the doctor is an important effort to do for babies who have 1 week of diarrhea, bleeding and fever now, and have not recovered even though the drug has been taken. The doctor needs to evaluate the therapy and ascertain the clinical condition of your baby whether he is currently experiencing mild or moderate dehydration; or not even dehydrated. Both of these conditions need to be ensured to plan the necessary follow-up care. If your baby has experienced signs of dehisrasi, then more intensive care with the addition of fluids and observation in hospital may be needed. In addition, the doctor also needs to ascertain the cause of diarrhea or diarrhea experienced by your baby, whether due to bacterial infections, viral infections, food / milk intolerance or food / milk allergies. So that all care and treatment procedures can help you recover complaints from your baby.
for now, you can still provide a balanced liquid / ORS and sufor and paracetamol until you see a doctor as soon as possible.
