Fever Accompanied By Vomiting And Decreased Appetite?
My mother has a fever accompanied by constant vomiting and won’t eat. Why is that?
Thank you for the question.
Fever, vomiting, and difficulty in eating may indicate that your mother is experiencing an infection of the digestive system, such as viruses, bacteria, and even parasites. Not only that, other digestive system disorders, for example intestinal inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, poisoning, peptic ulcers, food malabsorption, intolerance, and so on can also cause these complaints. Not infrequently, it can also be fever, vomiting, and difficulty eating due to dengue fever, urinary tract infections, meningitis, inflammatory disorders, metabolic disorders, the influence of drugs, psychological disorders, and so on.
Need to clarify, has it been more than 3 days that your mother has a fever? Does vomiting occur very often (more than 5 times a day)?
If his complaints have occurred long enough and repeated often enough, you should accompany him to check his condition directly to the doctor or internist. Blood tests, urine, ultrasound, and so on may be a doctor's advice if you suspect the condition occurs due to serious illness. Not only that, so that his complaints improve quickly, you also need to do too:
Give your mother paracetamol during fever. Even if you don't want to eat, persuade her to eat even a little but often Choose food for your mother who is not too spicy, sour, and contains a lot of gas Give her too much to drink, make ORS if necessary Call her to not go straight to bed after eating let him rest more and calm down Hopefully it helps yes ..
