Hello Eghazwar,

Fever in children can arise characterized by an increase in body temperature above 37.5 degrees where the causes are very diverse ranging from respiratory infections, digestive tract infections, urinary tract infections, ear infections, post-immunization, exposure to heat for a long time and others. Infection itself can arise due to bacteria, viruses, parasites or due to mosquito bites. Fever itself can be accompanied by other symptoms according to the infection where in this case accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea.

In diarrhea and vomiting, what needs to be considered is to keep the child from lacking fluids, if the child develops a high fever accompanied by diarrhea and vomiting, the child will potentially lose fluid and electrolytes which can increase the risk of seizures in children. For this reason, give the child more fluids, give medicine to lower the heat, compress the child with plain water or warm water while monitoring the child's temperature, keep feeding small portions but more often, pay attention to the signs of dehydration that arise and check for yourself immediately if symptoms appear more than 3 days or if signs arise such as the child appear pale, do not want to eat or drink, diarrhea more than 4 times in 8 hours, vomiting more often, the child does not urinate, fever more than 39 degrees, the child appears more inactive and more sleep.

Later the doctor or pediatrician will do a physical examination and supporting examination to find out the cause, such as blood lab tests, stool sample tests and other examinations that are needed and overcome the overcome symptoms that arise. Strive to maintain cleanliness by washing hands before and after food processing, or other activities such as changing children's diapers and others, washing children's hands, and avoid giving children any drugs without a doctor's examination such as antibiotics because in children diarrhea cases are often caused by viral infections.
