Child 16 Months Fever, Accompanied By Vomiting And Chapters That Do Not Go Away?
I want to ask you a question? My child is 16 months old and has been sick with fever for 5 days. Initially, he vomited with the chap… already checked, so it hasn’t healed yet… what makes me confused, the heat sometimes goes up, sometimes it goes down, and I’m breaking out in a cold sweat Even when the doctor checked for BDA, someone said, Typus, vomiting, high school measles. I’m so confused that my child should be checked again, what kind of medicine was given… please ask 😂
Hi Melvi, Thank you for your question.
Having a sick child that doesn't go away must worry you as a parent. To find out the cause of your child's complaints, it is necessary to have an examination by a doctor. Fever is usually one of the body's ways of fighting infection. Fever can continue to occur if the cause of infection in your child has not been treated. The following are some of the causes of fever in children:
Measles, usually your child will also experience a red rash on the skin, chickenpox, respiratory tract infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, typhus, dengue fever, gastroenteritis, and others. To diagnose typhoid, information about the patient's complaints must be supported by a physical examination and blood tests.
If your child has not shown improvement in symptoms despite taking medication for several days, please consult a pediatrician for further examination. The doctor will usually perform blood tests and stool examinations to determine the cause. If it is proven typhus from a blood test, the patient will be treated with antibiotics. The doctor will determine the right treatment for your child. Without a doctor's examination it is impossible to know the cause of your child's symptoms.
Also do the following suggestions:
wear light, loose clothing on your child so that body heat can evaporate keeping the child's body not too hot and not too cold. Use blankets as necessary. Take care of your child's food and drink intake to avoid dehydration. Monitor your child's body temperature by using a thermometer regularly. Give paracetamol to your child to relieve fever. Always keep your hands clean when preparing food and drink for your child. Avoid using drugs without advice. doctor Hope this information is useful.
