Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever complaints that occur in children can be caused by several things including:
Viral infections such as common cold, ARI Bacterial infections Circumstances of children who lack fluids / dehydration for example due to severe diarrhea or do not want to eat and drink Anemia Being in a hot environment conditions Allergies Malignant diseases and autoimmune Symptoms of fever in certain circumstances can be followed by a rash on the skin , coughing, nasal congestion, until shortness of breath. Therefore, if there is a high fever in children that occurs within 3 days accompanied by the child does not want to eat immediately consult a pediatrician. The doctor will carry out a thorough examination to determine the exact cause of your child's condition and provide a treatment plan going forward. The doctor will do a physical examination and growth and development as well as additional checks needed such as blood tests, urine tests, chest X-rays, and so on. However, given the current situation that is spreading Corona infection of course you are asked to remain vigilant when traveling outside the home, for example when you want to go to a health facility to consult a doctor. If there is nothing urgent it is better to stay at home and avoid the crowd.
Right now things you can do at home:
Try to continue to give children healthy and nutritious food Make sure the child is drinking enough and rest Teach children to wash hands regularly If the child has a fever, you can give Paracetamol to relieve fever Compress the forehead of the child and the folds of the body with plain water That is all, hopefully useful.
