Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Fever is a form of the body's physiological response to disease. To be able to know the diagnosis of the disease that causes fever, the doctor needs to take a systematic history about the history of the disease. Therefore, it is difficult to immediately determine the cause of fever without first evaluating the other symptoms that accompany fever (for example: coughing, runny nose, spasms, red spots on the skin, red urine, red bowel movements, liquid stools, etc. ), trends in the incidence of infectious diseases around a patient's residence, and information about specific epidemics in the patient's area of residence,
In general, the most common possibilities that can cause symptoms of acute fever (lasting less than 2 weeks) include:
Systemic infections, such as viral infections, malaria, dengue fever, leptospirosis, typhoid fever
Focused organ infections, such as upper respiratory tract infections, pneumonia (lung infection), urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections
Based on the latest scientific evidence which is still limited in number, symptoms / signs of tooth growth in infants include:
Lots of drooling
The gums appear red, painful, and swollen (gingival irritation)
Babies become more fussy / irritable (irritability)
An increase in temperature is found in infants whose teeth are growing, but the increased temperature does not exceed the threshold to be categorized as fever. So, fever is not a typical symptom / growth of baby's teeth.
So that the condition of your baby can be evaluated and handled appropriately, you are advised to check your baby to a doctor or pediatrician. As a suggestion, you should increase fluid intake for children, both in the form of breast milk / milk (according to the wishes of the child [on demand]) and water. In addition, you are also advised to provide your baby with complementary foods that are nutritionally balanced regularly. Use medication from the doctor in accordance with the dose and time of administration prescribed.
Immediately take your baby to the doctor if the fever is accompanied by symptoms of spasms, bleeding gums, nosebleeds, vomiting blood, bowel movements with black stool / fresh red blooded, or red urine. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
