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.

Right now things you can do at home:
