I want to ask, my child is 23 months old, a week ago he had a fever, after taking medicine (heat-lowering drugs and antibiotics) on the 3rd day, his fever has gone down, but the 4th day until now (day 7) the fever is erratic sometimes at noon , even more often in the afternoon until evening, feel more hot on the head, the next morning the temperature is normal again, what I ask, why is that so yes, for physical characteristics, my child is still active, eating and drinking there is no problem.
Hello Wulandari, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Demampada children can be caused by the following things, namely:
- Infection of the upper respiratory tract
- Ear infection
- Urinary tract infection
- Pneumonia / infection of the lungs
- Hot weather
- Use clothes that are too thick
- and others
If fever persists and does not improve, you should consult with your doctor again. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations, or additional examinations (such as examining blood samples, urine, x-rays, etc.) to help find out what illness your child is suffering from.
Here are things you can do at home to help resolve complaints: provide a comfortable room temperature for your child, avoid using clothes that are too thick and tight, compress the child's forehead with a small towel soaked in warm water, provide adequate nutrition for your child, avoid use a thick blanket, and get enough rest.
