Children Aged 2 Years Fever Up And Down, Vomiting, Coughing, Runny Nose And Breathing Sounds?
At night, I want to ask my child aged 2 years … Already 6 days the fever went up and down, diarrhea and vomiting, stones are also colds … Sleep is not sound, not as usual .. I want to be carried and held I do not want to sleep on the mattress .. And if you sleep, your breath always sounds loud snoring … You don’t want to eat it, except for snacks, it’s very little to enter … What should I do? Do you have to go to the hospital to the emergency room? Or what do I do? Already from day 3 of my child’s fever, I have taken colds, antibiotics and paracetamol … But nothing has changed yet …

Hello Aria Herawati, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Some causes of complaints felt among children:
Respiratory tract infections
The condition of your child can be caused by an infection in the respiratory tract or digestive tract, causing fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or coughing. It should be noted that if the child is getting weak, fussy, having difficulty eating and drinking, urinating less, tears are reduced, shortness of breath, or convulsions occur then it should be advised to be able to immediately bring it to the nearest health facility or to the ER.
It is best to do a direct examination by a general practitioner or pediatrician because a doctor needs to do a physical examination directly, check for signs of dehydration, or conduct laboratory tests to be able to help determine the exact cause of complaints in your child.
Some things you can do between:
Do not expose children to cigarette smoke, pollution, dust and other irritants
Keep providing enough food and drink for your child
If the child vomits, the mother can wait first and give food or drink more slowly
Mothers can use steam or a bulbizer to help moisturize the airways and thin the phlegm and phlegm in the respiratory tract
To reduce heat or fever, it can be given every 4-6 hours according to the correct dosage from your doctor.
