Fever or heat in children needs to be ensured by examination of body temperature using a thermometer where fever is characterized by an increase in body temperature of more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. Basically, fever is a form of response from the immune system of a child who is struggling and defending himself from a virus attack, bacteria, or other foreign substances. If a child has a fever, this indicates the body's immune system is responsive enough in the face of infections that occur. fever in general will persist throughout the course of the disease. However, if the fever goes up and down it could be due to a lowering medication, then the body raises the temperature again. That fever will generally persist throughout the course of the disease. If it goes down it must be after being given a fever-lowering drug, but after it rises again (body temperature). barati fever is not caused up and down but down because it is given medicine. The purpose of the fever-lowering drug is given with the aim of comforting the child, not healing the disease. As long as there are no other signs, fever should be maintained so that the child recovered completely from the disease. But on the other hand there are also diseases that do have a pattern of fever up and down like typhoid, dengue fever and malaria.
There are a number of child fever things that you need to be aware of:
The fever lasts more than five days.
Body temperature more than 40 degrees Celsius.
The child's body temperature is below 40 degrees Celsius but has diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration and pain in the throat and ears.
The child has difficulty waking up, experiencing headaches, skin redness and difficulty breathing.
Children's behavior is not as usual. For example, do not stop crying, always angry, refuse to drink and eat, difficulty waking up and often salivate.
if the child experiences the above mentioned immediately bring the child to the doctor to get a direct examination and provide appropriate treatment according to the cause.
There are several things you can do at home:
warm compresses on the forehead and between the armpits of children
use thin children's clothes
give children lots of fluids such as water if you can drink water or breast milk
give the child adequate rest
avoid first from people who approach it because other people's viruses will be easily infected with children
