Hello Santi, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com

Complaints of high fever and headaches, are symptoms that can arise as a result of many disease conditions. Fever in children can be caused by any number of things. Inflammation, viral and bacterial infections are the most frequent causes of these complaints. Some examples of diseases caused by trade and infections are:

  Upper respiratory tract infections (ARI), pharyngitis (laryngitis), gastrointestinal inflammation (typhus), dengue fever. The important thing is not to panic. Basically, when a child has a fever, it takes as comfortable a condition as possible to prevent the child from shivering or overheating. Although fever does not always indicate a serious illness, you must be vigilant. The following are some things that need to be done in a fever condition, namely:

 Perform periodic body temperature measurements Give adequate fluid intake by drinking enough water 700-1000 ml every day If the temperature is above 37.5 degrees Celsius, give a fever-lowering medication such as paracetamol according to the dose based on the child's weight Compress with warm water on the head immediately see a doctor to ascertain the conditions that cause this if the fever does not decrease for 3 days. Regarding this corona virus pandemic, you need to be vigilant if your younger sibling has a large risk factor for corona infection, namely a history of contact with COVID-19 positive people and or traveling to areas affected by local transmission namely Jabodetabek, Bandung, Solo, Malang and Surabaya. Because fever is one of the symptoms of COVID-19. So if your sister has a fever and has a history of traveling and contact with a previous COVID-19 patient, it is necessary to confirm whether there is a corona virus infection or not.

If there are no 2 risk factors, then I suggest you do an independent observation first for 3 days. If within 3 days the fever does not improve, then immediately see a doctor to be examined carefully and a blood test to determine the cause of the fever. So that the management given will be optimal.

I hope this helps
