Causes And How To Deal With Fever Up And Down?
In the afternoon I want to ask, I have been feverishly up and down for 3 days, for example at 12 a.m. I have a fever again at 1 p.m. get typhus?
Hello, good night Dinda ...
Fever is a sign that the body is responding to an infection from outside, for example due to viruses and bacteria. But fever can also be caused by other conditions not related to infection. Some causes of fever include:
upper respiratory tract infections, such as coughs, colds, strep throat, and tonsillitis
gastrointestinal infections (eg diarrhea)
urinary tract infection
extensive infections of the skin
dengue fever (dengue fever)
typhoid fever (typhus)
autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and so on
thyroid hormone disorders
consumption of certain drugs, such as antibiotics
and much more
We cannot confirm the cause of the complaint that you experienced because it did not examine you directly. Seeing the many possible causes of fever complaints that you experience, and you also have had a fever for three days, so we strongly recommend that you see a doctor. The doctor will ask questions about your complaint, do a physical examination, and if needed the doctor will suggest supporting examinations, such as blood tests, urine tests, etc. Regarding complaints of wrinkled hands after being in contact with water for a long time is actually a natural thing to happen , and is not a typical symptom of typhus.
Here are some early treatments for fever that you can do at home:
if your body temperature is above 38 degrees Celsius, you can take over-the-counter fever relievers (such as paracetamol)
consumption of lots of water
when you have a fever, avoid using thick clothes, layers of clothing, or thick blankets. This will actually make the fever more difficult to subside
take a shower as usual, twice a day. Use warm water, because this can help reduce body temperature. Avoid taking too long a shower
compress using warm compresses on the forehead, armpits or neck
consumption of foods high in vitamins and high in protein
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
