Fever Does Not Go Down Accompanied By Vomiting And Nosebleeds In A 3-year-old Child?
doctor, my son is 3 years 10 months. On Wednesday morning, initially it was just a cold, I gave Pimtracol then at 11pm the fever was high, Thursday morning I gave Proris…until this Sunday the little one’s fever didn’t go down, sometimes the fever was stable but accompanied by vomiting and sometimes nosebleeds, how to deal with it doctor? Thanks.
The symptoms your son is experiencing can be caused by a variety of related or unrelated possibilities, such as:
Dengue fever Typhoid fever Malaria Blood clotting disorders, and others
Dengue fever is a disease condition caused by a virus that is often characterized by fever. Nosebleeds are one of the danger signs of dengue fever. Other danger signs include loss of consciousness, bleeding gums, black stools, and reddish spots on the body. Typhoid fever is a disease caused by bacteria which is also characterized by a fever. Malaria is a disease condition caused by parasites. Nosebleeds can also be caused by ruptured blood vessels in the nose, blood clotting disorders and others.
With a history of fever >3 days, it's a good idea to take your child to the doctor. Because it is feared that there is a disease suffered by your child that requires immediate treatment.
I hope this helps.
