Fever Accompanied By Vomiting, Weakness And Lower Right Abdominal Pain In Children Aged 5 Years?
Hello doctor I have a 5-year-old child, Tuesday (01/14/2020) yesterday he had a high fever 39.6 u0026deg; C, accompanied by vomiting and said my child had a stomachache. I did not take him to the doctor, only I gave medicine. And thank God, healed, but since Saturday (01/18/2020) my son said his stomach hurts and asked to apply eucalyptus oil as he usually asks. But he is not as normally active, limp and often sleeps, Sunday morning around 7 am I wake up for breakfast, after breakfast I stayed to wash clothes about 30 minutes it turns out he slept again. The night skitar 20.00 WIB he said if I’m really sleepy and asked to rub it on eucalyptus oil. When I rubbed it, he said not to press here (bag. Right), even though I only felt and rubbed eucalyptus oil, but if on the left he did not feel pain at all. Please info from doctors. Thank you. Thank you
Thank you for the question.
High fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, weakness, and frequent sleep in children there may be many causes, mainly related to infections, such as digestive infections, urinary tract infections, meningitis, dengue fever, and so on. Aside from infection, your child's complaints may also be caused by other factors, such as gastritis, intestinal inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergy or malabsorption, poisoning, peritonitis, appendicitis, liver disorders, intestinal obstruction, bile ducts, malingering, and so on.
Your child's condition can indeed refer to very many medical disorders. Therefore, to be sure, it is not enough just to do an online consultation like this. First, you need to see your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Physical examination, laboratory tests, x-rays, ultrasound, and other supporting examinations may be that your doctor will advise your child to be able to properly identify the cause of his complaints.
In the meantime, you can first do the following steps:
Warm compresses or apply warm oil on a painful stomach, do not be carelessly ordered or massaged Give children comfortable and loose clothing Ask the child to rest more Prevent the child not to snack at random, especially doubtful food hygiene and maturity Give children regular eating, portions small but often Do not give children spicy foods and excessive gas. Give children also to drink more warm water. Hopefully this helps, right?
