Body Temperature Often Rises Colds That Never Heal?
Hello .. I want to ask my child, just 10 years old and just got out of the hospital after being treated for 5 days, said healed and did not have a cold or heat anymore, the diagnosis of lung respiratory infection “.. after at home 3 days the heat is often recurring Again and colds, what do you think is the effective treatment?
Thank you for the question.
Fever and colds in infants can indeed often repeat. This condition most often indicates inflammation of the nasal cavity (rhinitis) which is triggered by infection, either due to viruses or bacteria. Even so, other factors, such as allergies, foreign body entry, irritation, infection in other organ systems, immune disorders, anatomical disorders of the nasal cavity, even hypersensitivity to certain medications can also make these complaints often recur. So, your baby's current condition can be purely related to airway infections that he had before, or not.
If the new fever occurs 1-3 days later, you should not panic first. Make the following efforts first so that complaints quickly improve:
Keep baby from exposure to excessive cold temperatures, including from air conditioners or fans that are too cold. Bathe the baby with warm water, wear warm clothes and warm oil on his body, too. Use a humidifier and air purifier at home if possible. , dust, pollution, and allergens and other airway irritants Diligent washing baby's hands and shorten their nails periodically Give the baby paracetamol medication and warm compresses to his neck when his body temperature rises more than 37.5 degrees centigrade Give the baby enough milk, as well as valuable MPASI balanced nutrition so that the immune system is always excellent Give it full immunization according to the doctor's advice. You can check your baby again to the doctor or pediatrician if you find a fever and a cold does not improve with the above efforts within 3 days to be given further management huh ..
I hope this helps.
