Causes Of Fever After Cesarean Section?

Hello, thanks for the question.
Fever is a condition of an increase in body temperature above 38.5C that arises as the body's response to the presence of germs or disease in the body. Fever must arise from a certain cause, such as infection, autoimmune diseases, hyperthyroid disease, arthritis, due to the use of drugs (drug fever), and so forth. But if fever continues without an unknown cause, it is called the fever of unknown origin. Postoperative fever cesarean section (SC) can indicate an infection in the surgical wound, in addition to fever is usually also accompanied by a surgical wound that is long healed, wet, festering, and continuous pain so it needs to be treated by a doctor to deal with the infection. But if the infection wound is clean and has healed completely, the cause of the fever could be something else. We recommend that you consult a doctor to ascertain the cause of the fever, especially if the fever is high, persistent, and interfere with activities. The doctor will conduct a direct examination and additional examinations such as laboratory examinations, X-rays, ultrasound, etc. as needed. Treatment will be adjusted from the cause of the fever. If the fever is felt to be very high and disturbing, you can take a fever reliever that is sold freely in apoter, compress it with ice water or plain water on the folds of the body, get enough rest, be in a cool room, multiply the consumption of fluids, eat food healthy and nutritious, and avoid stress, cigarettes, and alcohol.
Thus, hopefully useful.
