Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Symptoms of cough, runny nose, fever, headache, sore inner lips and red spots, if they are in contact with each other, then the first possibility of a condition that can represent these symptoms is the Singapore flu or HFMD (Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease) ).
This disease is a contagious infection caused by a virus, and causes symptoms in the form of watery spots around the hands, feet and mouth, mouth sores, fever, sore throat, loss of appetite, stomach pain, cough, and a red rash. This disease can infect a person when he eats food or drink contaminated with the patient's feces, accidentally inhales the patient's saliva, nasal or throat fluids, and touches contaminated objects, then touches the eyes, nose and mouth.
This condition can actually heal itself, and even if there is treatment, it is more to relieve symptoms such as providing pain relief and fever. But of course, since we haven't looked at it firsthand, there is still the possibility that your child's condition is another disease. In fact, it is not impossible that the series of symptoms that you mention are not all related, and occur because there are two or more diseases that occur simultaneously such as smallpox, dengue fever and so on.
Therefore, we think it is important for your child to be checked by a pediatrician so that it can be done directly, and maybe added with supporting examinations such as blood tests if necessary. The treatment your child will receive will depend on the final diagnosis.
Meanwhile, keep your child healthy by keeping him away from sick people, keeping him away from air pollution, cigarette smoke, and dust. Make sure the child has enough rest, don't give the child acidic and spicy food, give him enough drinking water, always wash his hands and everyone at home, especially before eating, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully it answers your question.
