Fever And Vomiting In Infants When They Wake Up?
my child suddenly vomited and had a fever when he woke up after sleeping in the morning. I guess what causes it? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Symptoms of vomiting and fever, are actually symptoms that are not specific and can occur due to various causes. Fever itself is a response of the body if there is an ongoing infection. And in infants, these infections can include ear infections, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections, respiratory infections, oral infections, smallpox, measles and much more. So in addition to fever, other clues are needed.
In the case of your child, with a fever and vomiting, the infection may be in the digestive system, but even this must be confirmed that the vomiting is indeed a symptom that occurs continuously, not just once. Our advice, it would be better if you immediately check your child at a pediatrician, or at least at a general practitioner at a clinic in a clinic, so that further tests can be done to determine trends and treatment options.
Meanwhile, if your child vomits excessively, what needs to be considered is the potential for dehydration or lack of fluids due to the amount of fluid that comes out. Among the signs are the child appears weak, pale, eyes appear cowong, children look thirsty or lazy to drink, dry lips, rarely urinate, no tears when crying, and the crown looks hollow. If so, or your child vomits every time he is given milk or food, do not hesitate to be taken to the nearest emergency room hospital for immediate treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
