Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and itching on the thighs to the feet can indeed indicate a viral infection. This viral infection can occur in various organ systems, such as the digestive system, respiratory system, and so on. Not only viral infections, other microorganisms such as bacteria can also cause infections with clinical symptoms as your child is experiencing at this time. Apart from infection, itching on the thighs to the feet can also occur due to other triggers, such as insect bites or other animals, allergies, irritations, skin infections, and so on.
The steps you took previously were right, namely by checking your child directly to the doctor for further examination and treatment. With proper handling, often your child's condition can improve in 1 to 3 days. However, if after undergoing treatment your pediatrician still does not show significant improvement, it would not hurt you to check it back to the pediatrician for further monitoring.
Also consider treating the doctor with the following steps:
Give children understanding to always maintain personal hygiene, do not scratch your thighs until itchy feet, and do not always exert excessive physical activity. Feed the child regularly, even if a little but often. excessive Reduce also foods that can produce a lot of gas when ingested, for example sour fruit, mustard greens, cabbage, tubers Give children lots of water to drink Do not let children snack at random Give children medicine only as prescribed by doctors, do not carelessly add other drugs without consulting a doctor first Give your child clothes and pants that are made from soft and absorb sweat Compress the stomach of children who are terraced and nauseous Hope it helps yes ..
