Hello Herawati, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The body has a system to regulate temperature. Temperature regulation in the body functions to provide the body's metabolic balance itself. Body temperature will adjust the environment where we are. When the environment where keta is in low temperatures, the body will adjust and try to increase the temperature in the body so that the body's metabolism remains balanced. Conversely, if the environment feels hot, the body will try to lower the temperature by releasing sweat so that the body temperature returns cold. By understanding body temperature, it will be easy for us to know whether there is a problem or not in our body.
When there are microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, or parasites that try to infect the body, the body's immune system will cause a reaction to keep the body healthy and uninfected. That reaction is called fever. Normal body temperature is between 36.5 - 37.5 degrees Celsius. To find out if your body temperature has a fever or not, then you need a thermometer to check body temperature in detail. If your body temperature is above 37.5 degrees Celsius, then you have a fever. Although fever does not always indicate a serious illness, you must be vigilant. The following are some things that need to be done in a fever condition, namely:
Perform periodic body temperature measurements
Provide adequate fluid intake by drinking enough water 700-1000 ml every day
If the temperature is above 37.5 degrees Celsius, give a lowering medication such as paracetamol according to the dosage based on body weight
Compress with warm water on the head
See a doctor immediately to determine the conditions that cause this if the fever does not decrease for 3 days.
Regarding this corona virus pandemic, you need to be vigilant if there are large risk factors for corona infection, namely a history of contact with COVID-19 positive people and / or traveling to an infected area. Because fever is one of the symptoms of COVID-19. So if you have a fever and have a history of traveling or contact with people from out of town and contact with previous COVID-19 patients, it is necessary to confirm whether there is a corona virus infection or not. Do independent isolation at home for 14 days if there are these risk factors. If the fever does not appear to improve and appear tight, then immediately see a doctor to be examined carefully and given optimal management.
I hope this helps
