Is it because there are bacteria that I want to ask if I need antibiotics or other drugs for So I don’t have a fever … Thank you doctor
Vomiting and fever can be caused due to many factors. Does your child have diarrhea? Fever and vomiting can be caused due to gastroenteritis, food poisoning, food allergies, appendicitis, urinary tract infections, meningitis, and meningitis.
Not all fever and vomiting conditions are caused due to bacterial infections. Therefore a child who has a fever and vomiting does not always get antibiotics. It needs to be inspected directly to make sure yes.
Ondansetron is an anti-emetic, but you should use this drug under the supervision of a doctor and the dose must be according to the doctor's recommendations. If your child currently has a fever, you can do the following tips:
Let the child rest
Give more fluids to children
Avoid giving children foods that are too acidic, high-fat, or oily
Adjust the room temperature to make it more comfortable
Give clothes that are comfortable, thin, and loose
Warm compresses for children
Give fever-lowering, for example paracetamol in children (adjust the dose to the child's weight)
Watch for signs of dehydration: weakness, lazy drinking, crying without tears, rarely urinating, cold hands, cowey eyes
If the fever is more than 3 days or the child experiences vomiting continuously and there are signs of dehydration, you should take the child to the doctor or the nearest emergency room so that you can check if necessary with a blood test to ensure your child's condition so that your child can be given further maximum treatment yes.
Hope it helps you,
