Can A 3 Month Baby Get A UTI?
Afternoon, I’m Endriana. I have a daughter aged 3 months. I want to ask, can babies under 3 months experience isk? My child suddenly has a fever. Already 2x this fever suddenly. the first fever subsides after drinking breast milk. the second is that his fever is falling, his fever is between 37.4-37.7. I’m worried if I get hit by ISK. Please enlighten me.

The normal body temperature is 36.5-37.2 degrees Celsius. Temperature 37.2-37.8 degrees Celsius is called subfebris or mild fever. While it is said to have a fever or febrile if the body temperature is more than 37.8 degrees Celsius. The body temperature of subfebria can occur as a sign of the following conditions, namely:
1. Dehydration or lack of body fluids.
2. Infectious diseases, such as lower UTI (urinary tract infection).
3. Non-infectious inflammatory diseases, such as autoimmune.
UTI can be experienced by anyone, including babies. In infants it is often caused by being late to change pempers or diapers. Especially if the baby BAB and the mother is slow to clean it.
Mothers can consult directly a pediatrician so that further examination can be done. The doctor may ask to have a complete urine test on the baby or an ultrasound examination of the abdomen if indeed according to the doctor's requirements.
Meanwhile, keep giving the baby ASI as often as possible and paracetamol with the appropriate dosage of the baby's body weight. Do not forget to always read the instructions for the use of drugs. In addition, a warm compress on the baby's forehead, neck and armpits can also help relieve the symptoms of fever.
Thus hopefully useful
