Children Coughing, Colds Accompanied By Persistent Eye Discharge?
Hello ,, My child (3 years old) is coughing a cold, starting Saturday afternoon his eyes are stained out in the left eye (white and not hard). Sunday moved to the right, but on Sunday afternoon so his eyes came out of dirt. Sunday afternoon until night starts to have a fever, Monday morning the temperature returns to normal (eye discharge and numbness remain). However, this Monday afternoon his body temperature returned to high. Why is that? Why does the fever only occur every evening and what causes the stools in his eyes to come out all the time? thanks.
The immune system of children is not as perfect as the immune system of an adult, so it is not uncommon for children to get sick more easily than adults. The cause of the eyes to produce a lot of eye dirt or "dirty" can be caused by an infection in the eye either caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. When someone is sick indicates that the person's immune system is not in prime condition, as a result, it is not uncommon for diseases that have emerged to attack certain parts of the body to finally attack other parts, for example the bacteria that cause eye pain ultimately cause fever because it has spread widely.
However, there are also conditions when a person is experiencing a disease and there are other diseases that also eventually attack the person, so that person has more than one disease with unrelated causes. For example a person who has an eye disease due to a bacterial infection but is bitten by a dengue mosquito, because the immune system is not optimal, so the person who has an eye disease finally falls ill with dengue fever. Or for example someone who is experiencing eye pain consumes food contaminated with germs that cause typhus, so that eventually it becomes typhus.
The doctor still needs to get more information to be able to understand the actual condition being experienced by his son Renda, so if the symptoms have been more than 3 days and there has been no improvement or are now getting worse (fever more than 39 degrees, difficulty eating and drinking , seizures, children are very weak) it would be nice if the child was taken to the doctor for further examination. As for some things you can try to do at home if your child's condition is still in a stable condition, compress with warm water on the forehead and both folds of the armpit, give a heat reliever containing paracetamol, if the child can understand try to teach so as not to rub rubbed his eyes.
