Children Have Fever When Chickenpox, Is Dengue Fever?
I am 33 years old and have chicken pox. My child is a girl aged 17 months. And I was paracetamol, then the problem was 40drjt, then I gave paracetamol and it was stable at 38-39, and then I went to the spA doctor and the verdict was exposed to smallpox and given acyclovir + dayathan in concoctions. but if the heat is 3hrs, it doesn’t have to be blood check. And this until the night the child is difficult tdr and fussy. Does the chicken pox in the child’s heat constantly? Is dbd fever also like this? Do you want to use paracetamol when it’s hot like this? Thanks a lot before

Chickenpox is a viral infection caused by the varicella zoster virus. Patients with chicken pox or varicella, can experience comorbid complaints in the form of high fever, headache, cough, red eyes, red spots filled with water, and itching. This disease is usually contagious, especially in the initial phases of illness. So frequent hand washing, wearing a mask and closing your mouth when coughing will help prevent the transmission of this infection to others.
While dengue fever is an infectious disease caused by the entry of the dengue virus into the patient's body. Dengue fever or dengue fever is often accompanied by complaints of fever, headache, nausea, abdominal pain, or can also be accompanied by decreased appetite.
Regarding your question,
1. Heat in chickenpox patients can take place in the initial phase of infection, and body heat or fever can last for 2-4 days. After the skin rashes start all appearing, the fever gradually goes down, and a few days later the smallpox rash will start to dry up.
2. For body heat in dengue fever, the patient's body temperature will also continue to rise, usually on the fourth day the fever will go down, and on this 4th day, it needs a good evaluation and observation to find out whether there is a problem with blood hemodynamics in the form of shock or bleeding. Therefore, a decrease in the temperature of a dengue fever patient on days 3 and or 4, is an important time for observation and evaluation of the patient's condition.
In relation to the nature of fever in chickenpox and dengue fever, in general it is almost the same, but cannot be equated due to the presence of other clinical conditions that follow.
3. For the use of drugs, I cannot recommend whether or not, because I do not conduct direct examinations on patients. So you should continue the treatment that has been given by a doctor who treats your child according to the time and dosage that has been given.
The addition of paracetamol should be avoided without knowing the proper dose of administration, the patient's condition, the patient's body weight, and the composition of the concoction given by the doctor. This is to prevent excessive dose accumulation, especially if there is already a paracetamol drug in the concoction.
So you should discuss with your pediatrician if you need additional information relating to the development of treatment of children, fussy complaints of children, and related to the addition of paracetamol drugs.
