I want to ask … my child is numbed again, the temperature on the forehead and stomach is really high, 38.3, but in other parts like cheeks, arms and legs are normal. I measure the temperature using a digital thermometer. Does my child have a fever?

1 Answer:

Hi Sary,


To find out the body temperature of a child, even adults, measurements are commonly done in the mouth, armpits and anus. Anal temperature is the body temperature that is close to accurate but is rarely done because of the difficulty. Currently, for the ease of taking the temperature of the body of a child and baby, using a digital thermometer, can be done in the ear and forehead area, even in the whole body.


Normal body temperature is in the range 36-37.5 degrees C. Above 37.5 degrees C, it is called a fever. Therefore, your child's body temperature of 38.3 includes fever, although in some other parts of the body found. At high enough body temperature, usually the end of the body area will be cooler, for example: in the soles of the feet and hands, and this is normal.


Coughs and colds can be caused by: influenza, other viral infections, and bacterial infections. To overcome this, we recommend:

Give the child more drinks
Wear warm clothes in places that feel cold
Take fever relievers such as paracetamol, according to the dosage.
Take it to the pediatrician, especially if it doesn't improve for more than 5 days.

Thus, hopefully can help you.
