, my son is 7 years old, I have 2hr fever and I have given him a heat-reducing medication but it has improved but how come the fever has risen even more? I just realized that it appears red on the skin, is it the effect of a fever or other illness, thank you for the answer

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fever is often the body's response to infection, be it a bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic infection. So in the case of your child, chances are still a lot and not specific. Among others are:

Singapore Flu
Scarlet fever
Kawasaki disease
Chicken pox
Measles
German measles


And it can also be other diseases such as dengue fever, depending on the results of the examination. Our advice, because there are still so many possibilities, you should check your child at a pediatrician first, so that you can find out trends through history, physical examination and support such as blood tests. Handling later will depend on the results of this examination.


Meanwhile there is no need to worry too much, it doesn't matter if you still want to give him a hot-reducing medication that is sold freely, compress his forehead with warm compresses, make sure he still meets the needs of fluids and nutrients, and always be ready with a thermometer to measure his body temperature. If his body temperature is very high (more than equal to 40 degrees), do not hesitate to take him to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
