8-month-old Baby Weak And Sleep A Lot After Recovering From High Fever?
December 31, my child suddenly had a high fever up to 40.2 C, then checked into the clinic and was given a drug injection and prevented steps, then 2 days later the fever went down. Thank you for eating and vomiting, just a little. What do you think?
Hello, thanks for asking.
Sudden high fever is generally caused by a viral infection. Viral infections can occur in the respiratory tract, ears, digestive tract, or urinary tract. High fever is certainly accompanied by general symptoms such as weakness, drowsiness, no appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or coughing colds. So naturally if the infection still occurs, symptoms still appear in children.
In addition to infections in each system, infections may also occur systemically, such as dengue fever or chikungunya. You should bring your child back to the doctor's control. The doctor may need to do a blood sample analysis to find the cause of the fever. Try your child to drink more than when he was not sick. A lot of fluid intake will trigger a child to sweat and urinate so that the fever can go down. Give continued MPASI according to children's tastes. Avoid giving drugs without consulting directly with a doctor.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
