Fever is a condition where the body temperature is more than 38 degrees Celsius. Normally body temperature is 36.5 - 37.5 degrees Celsius. The appearance of a fever indicates the body is trying to fight infections caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi. Fever can also be accompanied by complaints such as colds, dizziness, sore throat and urinary tract infections.
The causes of fever vary, it can be because:
Typhus: this is caused by the bacterium Salmonella typhi which is in food and drinks that enter the body. The incubation period for this disease is 7-14 days. To establish the diagnosis, you can use Tubex and Widal Test
Dengue fever: this is caused by the bite of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, symptoms usually appear 4-7 days since the mosquito bites. To enforce this disease apart from physical examination can also with a complete blood examination.
Malaria: in people affected by malaria, usually have a history of traveling to malaria endemic areas before, the incubation period is 10-15 days after mosquito bites, and to diagnose it can use RDT or rapid malaria diagnosis.
Other causes can be hormonal disorders, autoimmune diseases, due to drugs or due to other diseases caused by viruses, bacteria or fungi. To determine the exact cause of a fever, the doctor can perform anamnesa, physical examination and supporting examinations such as a complete blood test, urine test, stool examination, examination of sputum, x-ray until CT-Scan or in accordance with the possible causes of fever.
So far the drugs you get are in accordance with the complaints you feel. What can be done so far to reduce your complaints is to keep taking medicine according to the advice given by the doctor, avoid spicy foods, caffeinated beverages such as coffee and avoid alcoholic drinks, adequate rest, and eat nutritious foods and keep clean, wash hands before and after eating and when you want to hold your face. If complaints do not improve after the drug runs out, fever is felt, there is nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain until unable to do activities, there is diarrhea. Immediately to the doctor.
But in the rapid development of the corona virus, if not in urgent need, you should try not to leave the house while increasing the body's immunity, if during the home there are complaints of coughs, colds, fever of more than 38 degrees Celsius, until there is shortness of breath. And complaints do not improve even after taking medication, immediately see a doctor for further examination.
Thus my answer hopefully helps
