Fever Babies Are Accompanied By Vomiting And Diarrhea?
I want to ask, my child is vomiting and pooping 6 times already. Where’s the fever again? I have already given Lacto B and Pedialyte, still?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Vomiting and defecating up to more than 6 times a day, which appears accompanied by fever, may indicate your baby has a digestive tract infection, can be by viruses, bacteria, and even parasites. This condition usually occurs related to the cleanliness of food or drinks that are not well maintained. It could also, microorganisms that cause digestive infections into the body through the hands or other objects that are often dikulum by the baby. Infection in other organ systems can sometimes cause vomiting, bowel obstruction, and fever like your baby is experiencing right now.
In addition to infection, your baby's complaints may also be aggravated by other conditions, such as intolerance, malabsorption, intestinal inflammation, food poisoning, intussusception, food allergies, and so on.
The question is, how many days has your baby's complaint occurred? Do you find blood or mucus in the stool? Are the faeces very liquid consistency?
It is better, if the complaint has occurred for 3 days or even more, you consult your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Usually, for cases that are suspected to be mild, doctors simply give your baby some type of medication. However, if your baby is suspected to be quite serious, your doctor may also direct him to undergo blood tests, feces, ultrasound, or also undergo further treatment at the hospital.
For now, our advice is:
Give your baby more milk, do not forget to clean your hands and breasts every time and after breastfeeding the baby
Expand to give your baby water
Give your baby first food that is easier to digest, for example, having a soft consistency, brothy, not greasy, no milk
Limit fruit and vegetable administration first if the stool consistency is runny
Make sure your baby only consumes clean food and drinks
Also diligently wash your baby's hands and clean the surrounding objects that are vulnerable to swallowing
You may continue to give probiotics and ORS
However, do not carelessly give medicines to infants, including anti-diarrhea drugs, without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
