Fever In Children And Children Often Cry After Taking Medicine?
Good night doka. My child is only 17 months old, my child suddenly has a fever, when he is shivering, I have brought the doctor to labor, but the doctor says wait 4-5 days if the heat has not gone down 4-5 days then he will continue … after taking fever-lowering medication from the doctor instead my child often points – pointing his teeth while crying … That’s what my child is sick about huh ???
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fever is a symptom that is not specific to a particular disease. All bacterial and viral infections in the body can cause symptoms of fever. What distinguishes one disease from another is a series of symptoms caused, such as whether there is a cough, diarrhea, vomiting, urinary disorders and instructions from investigations. That is what causes your pediatrician to ask you to have your child examined if the fever does not go down. Because after about three days, then you can see the tendency whether a fever is caused by a virus, bacteria, or due to other reasons.
So in the case of your child, we cannot be certain what conditions he is experiencing now. Because even at the age of not even two years, his immune system is still weak and his body is still not 'familiar' with many diseases so it is easy to get infected and have a fever. As for the movements pointing to his teeth, they can be related or not with their present conditions. If related, it is likely because the teeth will grow or there is an infection in the teeth, or the teeth are porous. Once again, this is only conjecture and cannot be ascertained without direct examination.
Therefore, our advice is that you should continue to obey your child's doctor's advice by giving him a fever-lowering medication and have him checked by a doctor if the heat does not go down after 4-5 days. Do not forget to convey the motion of pointing the teeth at the doctor so that his teeth are also examined. While at home, make sure he is kept away from the sick, compress his forehead with a warm compress, meet his daily fluid and nutritional needs, brush his teeth with a soft bristled toothbrush, and don't let him fall asleep with the condition of the milk bottle still in his mouth because this can make bacteria breed. So, hopefully answering your questions.
