Eyes Bulging Up When High Fever?
Sorry this is my sister this morning a high fever up to 38 ° was brought to the health center this morning. Now how come it’s between conscious or not? His eyes looked up all the time. I took paracetamol at 9 o’clock.
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, how exactly is your sister's age now? Does he also experience vomiting, severe headaches, unnatural fussing, inactivity, more sleep, convulsions, slurred speech, abnormal skin rashes, stiff necking, or other severe complaints?
High fever can occur most often due to infection, for example by viruses or bacteria. It could also, this high fever arises due to heat stroke, certain immunization side effects, inflammatory disorders (for example due to rheumatoid arthritis or inflammation of the intestine), malignancy (malignant tumors), hormonal disorders, disorders of immunity, and so on.
Fever is very high, it can cause disturbed awareness, can even appear convulsions, or also called a febrile seizure. This febrile seizure is susceptible to children aged 6 months to 6 years, and is often harmless even though it can be quite alarming. Clinically, children who experience febrile seizures will often experience body stiffness coupled with their eyes glued to 1 particular object (in the medical realm called tonic spasms), so that often makes it often look upward. But it could also be, seizures due to febrile seizures make the child experience convulsions (clonic seizures).
In addition to febrile seizures, your sister's current complaints may also be caused by drug allergies, hydrocephalus, epilepsy, bleeding in the brain, brain infections or their constituent membranes, head injuries, neurological disorders, head injuries, and so on.
Unfortunately, you did not explain in detail as to what your current cool condition, how old he is, what complaints are experienced in addition to fever, also how the history of your sister's health condition in general. Therefore, it is also difficult for us to identify possible causes for complaints.
The good thing is, you consult your sister directly to the doctor, pediatrician (if your sister is a child), or a neurologist to do a more in-depth evaluation. With physical examination, structured interviews, or supporting tests, such as CT scans, blood tests, X-rays, MRI, brain records (EEG), spinal cord examination, and so on, the originator of your sister's complaints can certainly be identified and given the best treatment.
In the meantime, the best thing to do is:
If your body temperature is still more than 37.5 degrees Celsius, give your sister the drug paracetamol
Keep calm, don't panic
Always accompany your younger sibling when doing activities, do not be allowed to play or do activities without the supervision of other adults
Make the atmosphere of your sister's room the most comfortable, not dirty, awake sanitation and air circulation
Do not carelessly give your sister medicine without consulting first to the doctor
Hope this helps ...
