Causes Of High Fever In Children Accompanied By Constipation?
My 3 year old son had a high fever for 2 days and the fever went away on the 3rd day, he was checked by the midwife, he was given demacolin and concoction drugs. On the 3rd day, my child experienced continuous excessive sweating, difficulty eating, sometimes stomach pain, constipation since 1 day fever, looks weak and wants to sleep, but there are no red spots on the body, now I give 1 teaspoon of habooster. Do you think my child is sick?
Thanks for the question. You need to know beforehand that midwives do not have the authority to examine and give drugs to someone and this violates their profession and knowledge as a midwife.
