Hello, Dewy Siswanto, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Confusion during high fever can be normal if the confusion lasts only once and lasts less than 5 minutes. However, if you are confused, have strange views, the fear lasts more than 5 minutes and is repeated, it's best to take your child to the doctor.


Other signs of confusion to watch out for are fussiness, pointing at something that is not there, speaking inconsequently, sleep disturbances, irritability, difficulty waking up, looking weak and not responding to certain stimuli. The cause of this confusion apart from high fever, can also be caused by an underlying infection or disease (such as inflammation of the brain), electrolyte balance disorders, dehydration, impaired oxygen intake to the brain, or the influence of certain drugs.


For that, immediately take the child to the doctor if there are any of the above criteria. The doctor will ask you about everything related to symptoms, carry out a thorough physical examination, and perform the necessary supporting examinations such as blood tests to CT-scans. Confusion will be reduced if the cause is eliminated, so it is very important that a doctor be examined to determine the cause. For now, to relieve fever, paracetamol or ibuprofen can be given according to the dose determined by the doctor. In addition, compress the child's body with a towel and lukewarm water, allow the child to rest adequately, meet the child's daily fluid and nutritional needs, regularly take medication from the doctor and routinely check the child's body temperature with a thermometer.


That's all, hopefully it's useful.

Regards.
