my child has 39 drj fever
Since when does your child have a fever? Are there other complaints such as weakness, extreme drowsiness, cold cough, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, disruption in urination, ear pain, or redness of the skin? Fever is most often caused by an infection. Infection can be in the respiratory tract, digestion, urine, ears, or skin. Fever that is more than 3 days needs to be watched out due to dengue fever, typhus, TB, and malaria. Apart from infection, fever can also be due to side effects of immunization, exposure to hot temperatures, or because wearing clothes too thick.
Fever management is one of them with fever-lowering drugs, for example paracetamol or ibuprofen. But to overcome the fever also needs to be addressed first the cause of the fever. If your child has a fever for more than 3 days, I suggest that you see your child directly to the doctor so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of the fever, if necessary blood tests, urine tests, and x-rays can be done. If the cause is confirmed, the doctor can provide further treatment that is more appropriate.
While waiting to see a doctor, you can do the following tips:
Give paracetamol according to the child's weight, ask the doctor directly or the pharmacist who is on duty or seen on the drug packaging Let the child get enough rest Give the child more fluids Adjust the room temperature to be more comfortable Give the child a thinner and loose shirt Don't give blankets or layered clothes Give healthier and more nutritious food Warm compresses Hope it helps you,
