Cold Sweat Comes Out When The Child Sleeps At Night?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Infection of germs that cause pulmonary TB in adults generally shows fairly typical symptoms, such as a long cough, fever and night sweats, weight loss, coughing up blood, decreased appetite. Symptoms of TB infection in children are quite difficult to diagnose because not all of the above symptoms are found. Children can only show symptoms of decreased appetite, while others have fever at night without coughing complaints. Symptoms of fever and night sweats are caused by increased basal metabolism of the body due to TB infection. To note the child has a fever at night associated with TB infection, namely:
- Make sure hydration is good, the child does not look thirsty and BAK is not reduced
- Warm compresses in areas where there are large blood vessels in the armpits and between the inner thighs
- if the fever does not subside, give the child a fever-lowering medication according to the body weight dose
Along with optimal treatment, complaints will generally diminish. Perform routine control for evaluation of current conditions and further treatment. Optimal treatment is very helpful in reducing symptoms, eradicating TB germs, and reducing morbidity and mortality.
That's all, hope you can help
