Babies Aged 9 Months Are Often Shocked During Sleep After Immunization?
Good night. Sorry to disturb I want to ask. My son is 9 months old, he got the 9 months of measles immunization, Thursday yesterday. Then … just yesterday night his child already had a fever. yes, why not, the problem is that the dltidurny has decreased.
Fever is an increase in body temperature of more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. Fever that occurs can be caused by side events after immunization, it could also be due to infection. When a fever occurs, the body will feel uncomfortable so that the child may be delirious or his body seems shocked / shocked and can disturb his sleep time.
However, it needs to be considered again, whether the shock is due to the body's discomfort during a fever, or a seizure. When body temperature increases, febrile seizures may occur. When a seizure occurs, the oxygen intake in the brain will decrease, if the seizure lasts a long time (for example, more than 30 minutes) it can cause brain damage.
Fever seizures are the symptoms of the child losing consciousness during the seizure, when the child is awakened not responding, the eyes look up, can vomit, or foam comes out of his mouth, and after the seizure subsides the child will look drowsy.
For now you can do the following tips:
Give fever-lowering to children if necessary, for example paracetamol, make sure the dose given is according to the rules on the package or according to the child's weight (doctor's prescription)
Warm compresses on the folds of the body
Check body temperature regularly
Give enough fluids, if still breast milk, give more breast milk so that the child is not dehydrated
Watch when the child is shocked to see if there is a feature that leads to a seizure or not
If there is a suspicion that it leads to a febrile seizure, you should take your child to the nearest emergency room so that they can be further examined to confirm their condition and so that your child can be given proper treatment. You can also take videos of children experiencing "shock" and show the doctor who examined your child yes.
Hope it can help you,
