Hello Keenan10, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern.
Fever is a condition of increasing body temperature of more than 38 ° C. Fever in children is a defense system of the body of the child to do germs, viruses, bacteria or parasites. Here are some of the causes of fever in children:
Respiratory tract infections (commonly caused by viruses) Infections of the digestive tract Lung infections (pneumonia) Ear infections Having a weak immune system (malnourished or nourished) A child especially a toddler is more prone to catching the flu or upper respiratory tract infections caused by a virus. Children will have a fever, cough, runny nose, or painful swallowing. Children have a weaker immune system than adults, so it's easy to get sick. Especially if there is a family history of allergies or asthma, the child becomes more vulnerable and longer heals. Or if there are family members, relatives, or the surrounding environment who experience the disease, children in general can be infected easily. The disease is generally also harmless and is caused by a viral infection that will heal by itself. A research data reveals that children for one year generally experience 12 to 18 times a cold cough (flu).
But it is still advisable to find out the exact cause of your child's complaints by consulting your doctor or with the child's specialists, because the doctor requires a direct examination, measuring body weight, and giving the right dosage for your child.
Mothers can also pay attention to the following danger signs and should immediately come back to the nearest health facility:
Fever does not improve for more than 3 days Signs of dehydration (children cry without tears, urine darkens or becomes reduced) Children increasingly weak, unconscious, or seizures Signs of bleeding appear (nosebleeds, bleeding gums, bloody bowel movements, appear red rash on the skin) Shortness of breath weight Child weight that does not rise Some things you can do for your child:
Get plenty of rest Consumption of nutritious food and drink enough water Maintain personal hygiene and food for your child If there are family members who are sick it is advisable to wear a mask so as not to be infected with your child. Complete the basic immunizations and can be given additional immunizations such as influenza. If a fevered child can provide over-the-counter heat-reducing drugs such as paracetamol according to the dosage and recommendations from your doctor. Hopefully this information can be useful for you. Thank you
