Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all I want to make sure in advance, how long has your child had a fever and how high is his body temperature?
Fever in children can occur due to many causes, most often the cause is infection. Infection that can cause fever can be a mild infection (such as a cold cough, a mild ear infection, a mild gastrointestinal infection, or a skin infection) can also be a severe infection (such as an infection of the brain and lining of the brain, infection of the whole blood or sepsis). There are various causes of infection, can be caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites, and infections can also occur in any organ.
If you encounter the following conditions in your child, you should immediately take your child to the hospital:
fever is very high to more than 39 degrees centigrade
children look weak and inactive
the child has decreased consciousness (seen sleeping continuously and unable to survive waking up despite being stimulated)
Child's stool looks reduced and very concentrated, or even does not come out at all
the crown of the child is felt sunken or convex
child's eyes look sunken
children appear shortness or rapid breathing
If there are no conditions above for your child, you can try to give drugs such as parastamol in advance for children. Give according to the recommended dosage listed on the drug packaging. If after 3 days the fever does not improve, take your child to the pediatrician so that further testing can be done.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
