Babies Have Fever, Trouble Breathing And Straining Bowel Movements?
I want to ask my child aged 5 months over 3 weeks, now he has a fever and his breath is short and he often chants, even though my baby has chapters 2 times and is fussy. how to handle it ?? r nI give you onat ottopan is it good … thanks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Symptoms of a baby with fever, breathing problems and straining can occur because of several conditions that occur simultaneously rather than one condition that occurs continuously. Among others are:
Respiratory tract infections, which can be caused by bacteria or viruses. The diseases include pneumonia and bronchiolitis. Digestive disorders due to bacterial, viral or parasitic infections such as dysentery and is characterized by diarrhea. Immunization side effects
Apart from these three things, of course there are many other causes, considering that babies at the age of 5 months of course their immune systems are still not like older children or adults. Then regarding babies who often push, this can be because the baby is experiencing gas or constipation (difficult to defecate).
So because there are many possibilities, we highly recommend that you check your child with a pediatrician to get further tests on your child. Your doctor will then examine your baby, especially on the abdomen by tapping him lightly and listening through a stethoscope. If your baby's fever is past 3 days, your doctor may order a blood test.
Meanwhile, to avoid bloating in your baby, improve your baby's drinking position by placing the baby's head higher than his stomach, burping the baby more frequently, and holding the baby in an upright position for 30 minutes after drinking milk. Regarding the drugs you mentioned, they contain paracetamol and have a green label which means they are over-the-counter drugs. You can use it for your baby, but always obey the rules of use listed on the packaging. Get your child's temperature checked every 6 hours if possible, and immediately take your child to the doctor if your child starts to look weak, lazy to drink, has seizures or has a temperature over 39 degrees Celsius. We wish your child a speedy recovery.
That's all, hope it helps.
