hello wr wb
Fever in children after DPT immunization is a fairly common condition. This is part of the post-immunization reaction. You don't need to worry because the fever is temporary and can go away on its own. Usually as an anticipation the doctor will give anti-fever drugs after immunization that can be taken when a fever appears. To help reduce fever, you can also apply warm compresses to the child's forehead, armpits, and groin. Don't forget to continue to breastfeed your child as usual.
If a child's fever persists for more than a week, it is necessary to consider other causes of fever in children. If there are other complaints such as flu, cough, or diarrhea, it can be suspected that a child's fever may be due to inflammation elsewhere, whether it is the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, or other body areas. Check with your child directly to the doctor if this condition is experienced by your child.
