Hello Ikhiz, Thank you for the question.
How old is your child, 2.4 months or 2.4 years? Complaints about skin rashes accompanied by fever are not caused by allergies. These complaints are generally caused by a viral infection, for example:
Singapore measles measles chickenpox flu When infection, in addition to fever, children can also experience other symptoms one of which is joint and muscle pain. In some cases, infections that occur can also cause inflammation of the joints (arthritis). Maybe this is what causes children to be reluctant to walk. However, to be sure, you are advised to immediately consult a pediatrician because without a doctor's examination it is not possible to find out the cause of these symptoms. The doctor needs to ask you about your child's symptoms and do a physical examination on your child. Subsequent treatment will be given by a doctor in accordance with the results of the doctor's examination.
In the meantime, you can do the following suggestions:
monitor the child's body temperature with a thermometer regularly compressing normal water on your child's forehead, armpits and groin to help lower body temperature give paracetamol if body temperature continues to rise Wear thin clothing and adjust the room temperature to keep it comfortable for the child to maintain food intake and drink your child do a warm compress on the area of the sore leg Hopefully this information helps you.
