Hello!


Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,


Fever is the body's response to various causes, which is characterized by an increase in body temperature exceeding 38 degrees Celsius. Fever can be caused by several possible causes, such as viral infections, bacterial infections, parasitic infections, conditions of thyroid gland disorders, immune system disorders, infections caused by mosquito bites, side effects of consuming certain medications, or conditions of malignancy.


It needs to be explored further about the complaints that your child has experienced, since when the fever was experienced, how the characteristics and patterns of fever experienced (whether it is intermittent, continuous, heavy at night), the highest temperature measured by a thermometer, other symptoms that are experienced (cough, runny nose, defecation with liquid consistency, pain during urination), a history of allergies, and a history of treatment that has been done to relieve symptoms.


It is advisable to consult a doctor or pediatrician regarding examinations and management to treat the conditions experienced by your child. A thorough check is needed on your child's physical condition, supporting examinations such as blood tests may be needed to establish a diagnosis that is suspect. The administration of fever-reducing drugs in children can be considered using oral modalities (syrup), suppositories (through the anus), or parenterally (through infusions, generally when hospitalization is needed).


Avoid giving treatment to children without doctor's instructions, can do warm compresses on the folds of the child's body such as the armpits, groin or forehead, avoid wearing clothes that are too thick on the child so that heat can get out of the child's body.


Hopefully this information can help you,


Regards.
