Causes And Ways To Overcome The Increase In White Blood Cells In Children?
Thank you for the question.
There are many types of white blood cells, and so do their functions. Therefore, the increase in white blood cell levels should ideally be confirmed by checking the white blood cell count. That way, can be evaluated more deeply, what type of white blood cells are most increased, and what are the possible causes.
Increased white blood cells (leukocytosis) in children is most often due to infection. Not only meningitis, other infections, such as respiratory infections, digestive infections, urinary tract infections, and infections in other organ systems can cause leukocytosis. In addition to infections, leukocytosis can also occur due to allergies, immune disorders, malignancies, drug side effects, and many other possibilities. Of course, determining the cause of leukocytosis is not enough just to do an online consultation like this. You need to have your child consulted directly to a doctor or pediatrician to have an in-depth interview, physical examination, or other supporting examination according to the suspicion of the underlying disease. That way, then the doctor can give your child the best treatment.
At this time, so that the fever goes down, you should:
Feed your child ASI more often so that his endurance increases
Do not carelessly give children extra food or drinks too early, especially when he was not even 6 months
Increase skin to skin physical contact with children
Give children clothes that warm and absorb sweat
Compress the child's neck and armpits with warm water
Do not carelessly give children drugs without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
