Cause Every Night Sweating?
Night, I want to ask, my husband has been fevered for one month, every night his body sweats, clothes change up to 3 times because he is wet from sweat, he has 2x treatment, he says typhus, but already healed for a month, his body even thinner ,, what should I do ?? treatment already but not yet healed
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of fever continuously for a month and the body is getting thinner, is a complaint that is actually not specific enough to describe certain diseases, and can occur due to various things, such as:
The condition of hyperthyroidism, when a person's metabolism increases so that his body burns more energy and the symptoms include increased body temperature and weight loss
Tuberculosis or TB infection, although it is known to be a lung disease, in fact TB can attack other organs and among the symptoms are night sweats and weight loss for no apparent reason.
Immune system disorders, or autoimmune diseases, where the immune system attacks itself, causing nonspecific symptoms such as fever and weight loss
Other causes can also occur a case of cancer, or other infections that are actually not continuous for 1 month, but your husband is infected several times a month so as if he has a fever for a month. To ensure this, we recommend that you bring your husband to be examined by an internal medicine doctor and see about the possibility of the disease through digging in-depth history, a short physical examination and support such as thyroid function tests, tuberculin tests, blood tests, etc. to find out the tendency of the disease . Treatment will be given to your husband will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, what you can do at home is to help your husband heal by ensuring adequate rest, not doing a lot of physical activity first, making sure to drink lots of water and taking fever-reducing drugs regularly, avoiding cigarettes and consuming nutrient-rich foods such as fruit and vegetable. Also keep your overall body clean and wash your hands diligently. So, hopefully answering your question.
