Diarrhea And Vomiting After Fever?

Hello Karina, thank you for asking.
Fever, accompanied by diarrhea and vomiting are common symptoms. Usually occurs due to bacterial or viral infections. Infection can affect the digestive tract, respiratory tract, urinary tract, or infection in general. In general, if it hasn't lasted more than a week, the doctor will think of the possibility of an infection caused by a virus.
If you have entered the third day and your symptoms are preceded or accompanied by a fever, it helps you see a doctor. The doctor will do an analysis of blood samples in the lab to look for any signs of infection. Some infections that may occur, for example:
Dengue hemorrhagic fever.
And many other possibilities. Also pay attention to whether other symptoms appear such as coughing colds, red spots on the skin, severe pain in the joints, swallowing pain, and so on. Tell the history of your illness in a detailed and detailed way to the doctor so that the diagnosis can be directed.
You can help reduce symptoms by drinking plenty of water, bed rest, increasing protein and carbohydrate intake.
Thus my answer, I hope you get well soon. Regards.
