Hello Ardiyant, Thank you for the question.
Cough and cold symptoms are symptoms that are often experienced by children. These symptoms can be accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, wheezing, pale, fussy, decreased appetite, weakness, and others. Cough and cold symptoms can be caused by colds, colds, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, and allergic reactions. The possibility of pneumonia and tuberculosis also cannot be ignored. Because these symptoms are caused by a variety of medical conditions, further examination is needed by the doctor. Without a doctor's examination, it is not possible to find out the cause of these symptoms in your child.
If disturbing symptoms are still being experienced by your child, you should check your child to a pediatrician. The doctor will return to the question and answer session to understand the symptoms of your child and conduct an examination on your child. If necessary, the doctor will also recommend further tests such as blood tests, X-rays, Mantoux tests, and others. Whether or not further tests are necessary, you need to consult a doctor to avoid unnecessary examinations. After confirming the cause, the new doctor can provide treatment that is appropriate for your child's condition. Provision of medicines to treat coughs and colds in children under 6 years of age must be in accordance with doctor's recommendations based on the results of the doctor's examination. Do not delay re-examination with a doctor, especially if your child continues to have a high fever, look pale or short of breath, have difficulty eating and drinking, and look weak.
Meanwhile, please continue to monitor your child's body temperature with a thermometer regularly and make notes about the child's body temperature. You can also compress ordinary water on the forehead, armpits and groin to help relieve fever. You can give paracetamol or other fever-reducing drugs given by your doctor if your body temperature continues to rise. Another thing that is not less important is to let your child get enough rest and maintain your child's food and drink intake.
Hopefully this information helps you.
