Hello, Isah Nurdianah, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
From the symptoms you feel such as fever, body aches, headache, weakness, bitter mouth, it indicates the presence of the following conditions:
1. Viral infections, can be caused by the common cold/flu, dengue fever, or unspecified viruses
2. Bacterial infection, usually this situation will last more than 7 days, for example in typhoid infection
3. Parasitic infections, such as malaria, especially if you live or have a history of traveling to malaria-infested areas.
To determine the cause, you can consult a doctor, to explore a more in-depth medical history, complete physical examination, as well as supporting examinations if there are indications, such as complete blood examination, blood smear examination, urinalysis, and stool examination. Treatment depends on the cause, if the cause is a virus, it usually does not require treatment because it is a self-limiting disease, but requires an increase in the immune system to recover quickly, control symptoms, and monitor / monitor so that complications do not occur. In the cause of bacteria and parasites, antibacterial (antibiotic) and antiparasitic drugs are needed according to the indications and doctor's orders.
If you also experience these conditions: unbearable abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea until very weak, want to pass out, there is spontaneous bleeding (such as bleeding gums, red spots), cough / shortness of breath for more than 2 weeks, go to the doctor immediately. .
To temporarily relieve symptoms, you can rest first (don't think too much and don't move), drink a lot, eat regularly and nutritiously, and take paracetamol.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
