Can Strep Throat Cause Fever In A 9-year-old Child?
At night, my doctor wanted to ask my son, 9 years old, his body was hot, in the morning SDH took me to PKS, said the doctor was inflamed, did inflammation of the throat affect the temperature of the doctor’s body?
Hello Vita, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Indonesia is currently included in several countries that have been infected with co-19. This caused panic everywhere, especially areas that have been infected with the virus. Even the WHO has set Covid-19 into the Pandemic scale.
Responding to the story that you tell about your child's fever complaints, some of the possibilities that occur are:
Some of the diseases above can cause fever, and have symptoms that are similar to each other. But it is better now to do self-isolation at home with your child. It is intended that your child who is currently in poor body immunity does not contract covid-19 when traveling outside. or traveling to a crowded place since exposure from covid-19 is not very clear, and difficult to detect.
Right now what you can do is:
Do not panic.
Do independent isolation at home, at least up to the next 14 days, avoid traveling to the crowd or public places if not so forced.
Evaluate complaints that your child experiences, if complaints worsen such as fever> 38.5'C, coughing, and shortness of breath. You can take your child to the hospital.
Ask your child to wear a mask, because some other diseases can also be contagious.
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to increase body immunity.
Wash your hands always before and after the activity, especially before eating.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
