Child’s Body Temperature Is 38.2 Degrees Celsius?
my son’s heat 38.2 it’s a danger GK thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Normal body temperature usually ranges from 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius. This body temperature is regulated by the central body temperature regulation in the brain, specifically the hypothalamus.
An increase in body temperature of more than 38.2 degrees Celsius can be categorized as a fever. In children, this condition often occurs related to:
Infection, can be due to viruses or bacteria
Excessive heat exposure
Drug side effects
Other body inflammation, for example due to autoimmune disorders, and so on
The question now is, how many days has your child had a fever? Are there other complaints your child has experienced? How old is he now?
If a new fever occurs 1 to 3 days without other complaints, you can relax a little. Try to do some of the following tips so that the fever improves:
Increase physical contact with children (skin to skin)
Expand give the child ASI (if he is still breastfeeding) and drink (especially water)
Let the child rest more
First reduce children's play activities in the hot sun
Compress the neck, armpits, or groin of children with warm water
Give the child paracetamol according to the doctor's recommended dosage
Do not carelessly give other drugs to children without doctor's advice
However, if within 3 days the fever does not go away, or other complaints appear more severe, for example convulsions, stiff necking, vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, etc., you should consult your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician in order to get the best treatment ...
I hope this helps.
