8-month-old Baby Fever?
Mlm, I want to ask whether it’s good u0026amp; A normal 8 month old child who has a fever drinks lots of water.
Thank you for the question.
Fever in 8-month-old babies can naturally occur, for example, after immunization or when he is exhausted by excessive heat. However, this fever may also indicate a disease, for example a viral or bacterial infection, hyperthyroidism, malignancy, heart problems, inflammatory disorders, drug side effects, as well as various other diseases. The definitive treatment for this fever may differ depending on the underlying cause.
No problem giving lots of water to babies who have a fever. With plenty of water, this can help make the baby feel more comfortable, metabolism is smoother, and it is hoped that the fever will quickly subside. In addition to giving plenty of water, you also need to make the following efforts so that your child's fever improves quickly:
Regularly measure his body temperature with a standardized thermometer. If his body temperature rises more than 37.5 degrees Celsius, give him paracetamol according to the recommended dosage. Increase physical contact skin to skin with baby Many also give him breast milk and MPASI that is easily digested (although a little portion) Compress the neck, armpits, or groin with warm water Wear him clothes that warm and absorb sweat Let the baby get plenty of rest Don't panic, and do not carelessly give other medicines to the baby without a doctor's prescription If the fever in the baby does not go away for up to 3 days, or if you find your baby experiencing seizures, vomiting, loss of consciousness, stiff neck, stiffness disorders, skin rashes, and complaints other weight, immediately check with your doctor or pediatrician to get further solutions.
I hope this helps.
