Delirious And Hallucinating After The Fever Goes Down?

Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There are complaints of fever that has lasted several days, and now the fever has gone down (but maybe the body temperature is not yet normal) but complaints of delirium / hallucinations are increasing, then the possibility of this delirious complaints is triggered by the health condition of your sister who has not improved. So if your brother's health condition has not recovered, you should do an evaluation and re-examination to your family doctor or doctor of the health center or directly to a pediatrician.
To help reduce complaints delirious, triggers or causes of fever must be treated immediately. If the cause of fever and delirium is still ongoing, then the complaints of other comrades will continue to be experienced.
Some things that can trigger delirium in your sister can be caused by dehydration, fever itself, or due to intake of nutrients or foods that are less than optimal. In addition, delirium complaints can also be caused by complications from the pain he is experiencing at this time that affects blood circulation and nervous system function.
Because you do not inform any accompanying complaints other than fever and delirium, this fever complaint can be triggered by several medical conditions, such as:
1. respiratory infections, pneumonia, bronchitis or tuberculosis
2. diarrhea that can be caused by digestive infections, food poisoning, food intolerance
4. dengue fever
5. liver infection
Therefore, to prevent unexpected complications of the disease and ensure the cause of fever and delirium complaints, you should advise your parents to consult your sister's health condition with your family doctor and / or pediatrician. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations and investigations needed, such as blood tests or radiological examinations. The results of the inspection will be a reference for treatment and handling. If needed, the doctor can plan intensive care at the hospital to restore your sister's condition.
For the time being, it is best for your younger sibling to keep getting enough fluids and sufficient food intake. Give food and drinks in small amounts but more often (every hour), especially if complaints of vomiting or abdominal pain accompany.
