Hello Daniel Siahaan, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern.
Fever is an increase in body temperature of more than 38 ° C. Fever in children can cause mothers to be worried, here are some causes of fever in children:
Respiratory infections Infection of the digestive tract Urinary tract infections Lung infections (pneumonia) Ear infections Typhoid fever Has a weak immune system (lack of nutrition or nutrition) Small children, especially toddlers, are more likely to suffer from illnesses such as fever, coughing, runny nose, vomiting , or diarrhea. This happens because children have a weaker immune system than adults. Especially if there is a family history of allergies or asthma, the child becomes more vulnerable and heals longer. If there are family members, relatives, or the environment that has a viral infection (flu) or others, children in general can be easily infected.

One data found that children for one year generally experience 12 to 18 times respiratory infections.
