Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Please note, in addition to fever and pain in the pit of the stomach, are there any other complaints that your child is experiencing, for example drastic weight loss, swollen lymph nodes, bleeding disorders, severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, neck stiffness, seizures, mental confusion, decreased consciousness, et cetera?
Fever in children is often not a dangerous condition. This condition is generally caused by a viral or bacterial infection, such as in the respiratory tract, ears, or other organs. However, if this fever occurs prolonged (more than 2 weeks) or accompanied by severe heartburn and other danger signs as mentioned above, you need to be vigilant. It is feared, your child's complaint indicates a more serious condition, for example:
Severe infections, for example meningitis, encephalitis, pneumonia, kidney infections, heart infections, tuberculosis, etc. Inflammation, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation of the intestine, lupus, vasculitis Malignancy (cancer), including blood cancer (leukemia), lymphoma, intestinal cancer, or cancer in other organs Hyperthyroidism (hyperactive thyroid gland) Side effects of drugs, such as anti-seizures, antihistamines, antibiotics, NSAIDs Drug abuse, such as amphetamines, cocaine, etc. Each of these conditions needs to be distinguished not only by interviews and physical examinations, but also involving supporting examinations, including laboratories, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on. In some cases, spinal cord smear examination can also be done to detect possible disorders of the spinal cord which can also cause fever, such as leukemia, multiple myeloma, lymphoma, and so on. As long as it is performed by professional medical personnel, this examination procedure is often harmless. In fact, with the detection of your child's illness more quickly through proper examination, the condition can be treated earlier so that the potential for recovery will be greater.
Of course, any appropriate examination to be done in determining the diagnosis of the cause of fever and heartburn needs to be done by examining a doctor or pediatrician directly. Therefore, you should consult directly with the doctor who treats your child regarding this matter ...
At this time, you should first give your child a paracetamol drug to help relieve the fever and pain in the pit of the stomach. Compress the pit of the child's solar plexus with warm water. Ask your child to rest, do not always activities too tired. Give your child enough to drink and eat nutritious foods so that their endurance is always maintained.
Hope this helps ...
