Aloe Yon3125, Thank you for your question.
Have you checked your child's condition to the doctor? When infection enters the body, the body reacts with an increase in body temperature / fever. Fever is a condition when the body temperature is more than 37.2 degrees Celsius with thermometer measurements in the armpits. Usually fever is accompanied by other symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, headache, muscle / joint pain, nausea, vomiting, stomach ache, diarrhea / constipation, decreased appetite, and others. Fever that is accompanied by coughs and colds may be caused by colds, colds, or bronchitis.
There are several things you can do at this time:
monitor the child's body temperature with a thermometer regularly wear loose clothing on the child keep the room temperature to stay comfortable for the child let the child get plenty of rest do ordinary water compresses on the child's body to help relieve body temperature give paracetamol with the appropriate dosage to relieve fever while trying to keep intake of food and drinks your child rubs balm on the back or chest provide food or warm drinks to help relieve nasal congestion If these symptoms are accompanied by persistent high fever, fussy children, limp children, children do not want to eat and drink at all, you should consult further doctors immediately. Further tests are needed to determine the exact cause of your child's complaints and determine further handling.
I hope this helps.
