Fever And Frequent Salivation In Children?
want to ask my child aged 2 years 7 months. Fever dries yesterday afternoon but still cheerful, just starting in the afternoon suddenly doesn’t want to drink milk etc. Just want to drink water. Keep spitting out so often. That’s why … when I go to sleep, I suddenly want to spit. Is it because of nausea or what? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Fever and lazy eating and drinking in children is likely to indicate it is experiencing an infection, for example due to viruses or bacteria. If it is true that he often appears to be salivating frequently, then it is most likely that this condition occurs due to infections that occur around the oral cavity, such as dental infections, throat infections, salivary gland infections, and so on. It could also be true, you say, that excessive saliva production is holding your baby nauseous. Consumption of certain types of food and drinks, side effects of drugs, dry mouth, lack of nutrition, and various types of infections in other organ systems can also show clinical manifestations like this.
Without checking your child directly, it is certainly difficult to ascertain whether the condition is due to infection, and if so, what type of infection. However, if it's true that your child's complaint appears 1-3 days, then you can try to do it first:
Give him paracetamol according to doctor's dosage. Give him plenty to drink, especially water. Keep feeding him, even if the portions are small. Don't over-feed him with instant foods and lots of gas (for example fried foods, coconut milk, and fruits and vegetables that are too high in fiber. ) Let him get plenty of rest However, if in 3 days his condition does not seem to improve, try to check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that it is handled properly according to the cause. If necessary, the doctor may later recommend that your child undergo a blood test. before giving him the right treatment.
Hope this helps ...
