Hello Bayuputri, Thank you for the question.
Fever is one of the body's response when there is an infection that attacks the body. These symptoms can be caused by various infectious diseases. In children, in addition to infectious diseases, can also be caused by tooth growth, post-vaccination, and side effects of drugs. The following are some infectious diseases that cause fever: flu, sinusitis, ear infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, dengue fever, typhus, urinary tract infections, and others. This complaint can also be accompanied by complaints of muscle and joint pain. This moving back pain may be caused by muscle and joint pain that accompanies fever.
Do you measure your child's body temperature with a thermometer and have a record of this child's body temperature? Measuring body temperature with a thermometer is a recommended way to ensure your child has a normal body temperature or has a fever. Touching by hand alone, as many parents do, is not enough to know whether a child has a fever or not. Furthermore, if you have a record of the child's body temperature, the doctor can find out your child's fever patterns. Thus, doctors can also better understand the condition of your child.
Prolonged fever may be caused by urinary tract infections, ear infections, and tuberculosis. These infections are not infrequently difficult to detect. In addition to infectious diseases, it is also necessary to consider other possibilities such as leukemia as a cause of children being susceptible to infections. However, further examination is needed by the doctor.
If this complaint still occurs especially if accompanied by a fever, you should re-consult with a pediatrician who previously handled your child or you can consult with other pediatricians to ask for other opinions about your child's condition. Without a doctor's examination, it's impossible to find out the cause of this symptom. The doctor will return to the question and answer session to find out your child's complaints, examine your child, and perform other examinations such as blood tests. Further treatment will be given by the doctor according to your child's condition. In the meantime, please do the following suggestions:
monitor your child's body temperature with a thermometer regularly and make notes about the measurement time and the results of this measurement
apply plain water compresses on the child's forehead, armpits and groin to help relieve fever
give fever-lowering drugs such as paracetamol if body temperature continues to rise
while maintaining your child's food and drink intake
avoid children from people who are sick
teach children to always maintain the cleanliness of both hands
Hopefully this information helps you.
