16 Month Old Baby With Strep Throat And Diarrhea?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask, my 16-month-old son was initially stubborn and had a fever after I checked he said strep throat continued in the steam. Oh yes, since my child was sick, my child did not want to eat rice …, I had only given clear vegetables that were eaten by vegetables, but I gave Marie a biscuit. But since the chapter is a little runny but once a day, this is also the same as a bit runny ,, my child is full of breast milk, beg for the solution doctor😊
Thank you for the question.
Fever, coughing, and colds in infants can be caused by strep throat (pharyngitis). Because of this condition, usually the baby will feel uncomfortable in his throat, such as itching, burning, phlegm, or a lump, so that the process of eating will feel very unpleasant. This is most likely what makes your baby difficult to eat. A stool that is rather runny but which occurs 1 time a day is usually a reasonable condition and should not be a concern.
It should be clarified beforehand, at this time, are there still complaints from your baby besides having difficulty eating? Does the fever, cough, and runny nose still continue to this day?
If your baby's condition has improved a lot, only his appetite has not recovered after illness, then you should not panic first. Take the following steps to make your baby's condition recover faster:
Expand give him milk and water Give him also variations MPASI soft, easy to swallow, a little but often If it is difficult to eat, give him a healthy snack in between meals, for example cut fruit, juice, or non-MSG cookies Do not never force a baby to eat, especially to rebuke or punish him, so that he is not traumatized Keep the environment in which the baby lives always clean, good ventilation, and not close to other infectious disease sufferers. Never use air conditioning or a fan too cold around the baby Give the baby treatment as recommended by the doctor However, if your baby's condition still does not improve until more than 3 days after treatment, do not hesitate to check it back to the doctor or pediatrician so that further treatment ..
I hope this helps.
