Good afternoon. I’m sorry I want to ask my child aged 3 years 7 months. 3 days ago, fever, after taking the fever medicine down. I just need to cough but why does he keep sleeping like he usually plays, run about what the cause is. Thank you.
Hello Retno, Thank you for the question.
Can your child easily wake him up when he falls asleep? If you are still able to wake your child up, don't worry first. Everyone, both adults and children, who are sick will generally feel weak, not powered, and will often sleep. This is in response to the body to restore the body's condition. However, this sleep condition must be watched out to be a sign of a more serious condition if your child is difficult to wake up when he is sleeping. If your child becomes difficult to wake up and / or is accompanied by other symptoms such as persistent high fever, confusion, seizures, difficulty in eating and drinking, please immediately check your child's condition to the doctor. A fever that is accompanied by a cough can be caused by colds, strep throat, tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia or tuberculosis.
Please continue to monitor the condition of your child. Take care of your child's food and drink intake. Monitor your child's body temperature regularly, if there is a fever, give paracetamol to relieve fever. If your child's condition does not improve over the next few days, please check with your child's condition to the doctor. The doctor needs to find out more about your child's symptoms, examine your child, and perform other tests such as blood tests or X-rays. Further treatment will be given by the doctor according to the conditions experienced by your child.
Hopefully this information is useful.
