Hello Didik, Thank you for the question.
When was the last time your child had a fever? Can your child still be invited to talk? Does your child look asleep and hard to wake up? How is your child's food and drink consumption? Does your child experience other symptoms such as coughing, runny nose, vomiting, stomach ache, diarrhea? Does your child have pain in his left hand or foot? Children who appear to be less active can be caused by lack of nutrition or dehydration. If the child still has a fever or infection in the body, this complaint can also cause the child to become less active. However, you need to be more vigilant if your child still has a fever because this complaint can also be caused by meningitis or encephalitis.
You should immediately check your child's condition to a pediatrician. Doctors need to find out more about your child's complaints and examine your child. The doctor may perform other tests such as blood tests, lumbar puncture, and others to find the cause of these symptoms before determining further treatment.
Please take care of your children's food intake and drinks. Let your child get enough rest.
Hopefully this information is useful.
