Hello Eka, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Symptoms and signs experienced by your sister can be caused by several diseases, such as:
Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) is a bacterial or viral infection in the respiratory tract, which causes symptoms of cough, runny nose, accompanied by fever. ISPA, especially because of the virus, will improve by itself in a few weeks without the need for special treatment.
Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a disease caused by a viral infection of dengue that enters the human body through mosquito bites. throw up.
Malaria is a disease that spreads by the bite of a mosquito that has been infected with a parasite. Symptoms of malaria generally consist of fever, sweating, chills or cold, vomiting, headache, diarrhea, and muscle aches.
A negative widal test result may not necessarily get rid of typhoid fever, because the widal test can produce false negative or false positive results. I suggest you take your sister to a pediatrician so that you can have a thorough examination, such as question and answer, vital signs, physical examination of the nose, ears, throat, chest, stomach, skin, and supporting examinations such as routine blood laboratories, malaria antigen tests , antidengue, routine urine, typhus bacterial examination, sputum examination, and chest x-ray, so that treatment can be given according to your sister's diagnosis.
The things that can be done now are:
Providing heat-lowering drugs such as paracetamol with the dose listed on the drug packaging
Compress the forehead, armpits and groin area
Increase rest and consumption of warm water
Eat nutritious foods to speed recovery
Position the head higher when sleeping by using an extra pillow, to expel breathing.
Use mosquito nets to cover the bed while sleeping, wear insect repellent lotion, and use clothes or blankets that cover body skin.
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
