Causes And Ways To Cope With Babies Experiencing Cold Sweat After Fever And Bapil?
My child is only 11 months old and has been cold for 2 days, especially in the hands and feet that are not covered by clothes, but other body parts are also cold. Why is it hmm? 4 days ago it was indeed a hot fever and cold cough, until now the cough was still there and there was still a lot of sputum. What is the cause of sputum? What is the solution? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
A baby's body that feels cold, especially in the hands and feet, after experiencing a fever, cough, and runny nose is most likely to occur because of the recovery process after illness. As long as your fever, cough and runny nose have improved, and your baby does not look pale, weak, or experience other, more severe complaints, this condition is often not dangerous. Compared to other complaints, namely fever and colds, cough is indeed often will heal longer. This condition does not always indicate a dangerous disease.
However, indeed, sometimes a baby's body that feels cold accompanied by a cough that does not go away in infants indicates a more serious illness, for example bronchitis, pneumonia, heart problems, allergies, shock, viral or bacterial infections, and so on. Frequently, if these conditions trigger your baby's complaints, they don't appear on their own. But also accompanied by a variety of other complaints as we have mentioned above.
We suggest that you don't panic first. Check with your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that the condition can be handled appropriately according to the cause. Blood tests, X-rays, Mantoux, and other supporting tests may be the doctor will advise you.
In the meantime, what needs to be done is:
Give the baby more milk, warm water, and warm foods that are of high nutritional value
Don't give babies food that is oily, cold, and contains artificial sweeteners
Keep baby from cold, smoke, pollution, and other substances that are prone to trigger allergies or irritations in the airways
Keep the baby's living environment clean
Give baby comfortable clothes, bathe him with warm water
Use a air humidifier at home if possible
Do not carelessly give the baby medicine without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
