My fever was accompanied by diarrhea, a bitter taste, deep heat, and a stomach that didn’t feel as good as nausea. What do you think?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Fever is a condition where the body temperature exceeds 38.5 degrees Celsius which appears as the body's defense response to fight germs. The causes of this fever are numerous, can be caused by bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections, autoimmune diseases, other diseases such as hyperthyroidism, arthritis, or due to the use of drugs (drug fever). Symptoms of fever accompanied by complaints of abdominal pain, bowel movements / diarrhea or difficult bowel movements / constipation, nausea, vomiting, bitter tongue, etc. can cause disturbances or infections from the digestive tract such as inflammation of the stomach or intestine (gastroenteritis), typhoid fever, and so forth. In typhoid fever, complaints of fever are usually felt up and down, up especially at night and down in the morning and afternoon, there are symptoms of the digestive tract, physical examination usually gets a dirty tongue, and from laboratory tests usually get white blood cells down (though sometimes may increase in some cases), widal, tubex, or test results for positive typhoid bacteria. If the complaint is felt to be very disturbing comfort, lasts a long time, or the fever still persists after 3 days of treatment or if the symptoms get worse if you consult a doctor, the doctor will carry out examinations on the patient and additional examinations if needed, such as blood tests, feces, urine, ultrasound, and others to find the cause of complaints. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of fever, because fever is a symptom due to other diseases so that if the underlying disease is treated appropriately the fever will disappear and body temperature can return to normal. It is best to keep on taking your fever-lowering medication and other medicines as prescribed by your doctor and to consult again if complaints do not improve after a few days. To help reduce complaints you should:
Compress with ice water or plain water on the folds of the body Adequate rest Use light clothing and stay in the room with cool air. Expand the consumption of water, at least 2L or 8 glasses per day Eat healthy and nutritious foods to speed up the healing process Eat small portions but often Thus, hopefully useful.
