Hello, Irmayani. Thank you for your question to aldokter.com.


Fever is a condition when body temperature rises more than normal body temperature. Normal body temperature ranges from 36.5 to 37.2 degrees Celsius. When a fever occurs, the brain will send a sympathetic signal to the peripheral blood vessels, so that the peripheral blood vessels narrow, then a decrease in temperature occurs through the skin. You should consult with your doctor directly, so that you can be examined and get the appropriate treatment. Some things you can do to reduce your child's complaints, including giving fever-reducing drugs such as paracetamol according to the dose, warm compresses, consumption of nutritiously balanced foods, keep breastfeeding for up to 2 years, and give a blanket to your child's feet. Thus, hopefully useful.
