Children Often Have Fever For No Reason After Falling Out Of Bed?
Mlm want to ask my son since he fell out of bed now, how come it is often hot for no reason? And sometimes in cold weather my child even sweats .. My child is only 6 months old .. I want to check with the doctor, there is no fee .. thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Increased body temperature, usually occurs when the body is trying to fight an infection that can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites or other disease-causing agents, and this has no effect with a history of falling from the bed.
In infants, especially those who are only 6 months old, their immune system has not been functioning optimally, so it is only natural that they often have fever. And because you have never had it checked, you cannot say without reason, because you do not know that your child may be infected with a virus. That is why it is important for every baby under 6 months of age to make breast milk the main and only source of nutrition because breast milk is proven to increase immunity.
Meanwhile, in children who sweat, this condition can occur due to several possibilities, such as babies wearing clothes that are too thick, using blankets that are too thick, and as a normal metabolic response. A sweaty baby is only considered dangerous if the sweat is accompanied by a fussy baby, looks weak, looks sick, cries without tears, his body temperature is very hot or tight. If this happens, you should immediately get your child checked by a doctor.
However, the condition your child is experiencing is most likely normal. However, we also cannot guarantee without direct inspection. So if you have a problem with costs, we recommend that you start considering having health insurance. So, hopefully it answers your question.
