Fever In Children Only At Night Accompanied By Coughing And Colds?
night pray for me now 4.5 years old. 38c fever .. but his fever came when he was sleeping at night. wake up until before going to sleep, normal temperatures between 35-37 c. It has been going on for 5 days … I have also checked into igd … but since there is no inflammation … and the child still wants to eat and drink as usual, so there is no further examination. and now my child has the flu and cough. so what should I do now ?? Is it normal to have a fever only at night ?? because he has the flu and cough … because eating and drinking is still normal. even if you have a fever it must be 38. thank you
Fever is a condition of increasing body temperature above 37.5 degrees celsius. Most fever in children is caused by infection or inflammation, fever in infectious conditions is useful to limit the development of infection. However, fever can also be triggered by the following conditions:
Dehydration (lack of fluids) Thyroid hormone disorders Side effects of medicines Flu or cough can be a symptom of respiratory tract infections, this condition can also cause fever. Fever that only occurs at night is still considered a reasonable condition if the complaint is not too severe. However, you should still see your child to a doctor if you are worried or if the complaint lasts long enough so that the doctor can ascertain the cause of your child's complaint and provide appropriate treatment.
The doctor will ask for a history of complaints, physical examination or supporting examinations such as blood tests. If indeed the complaint is caused by an airway infection, the doctor can prescribe antibiotics that are compatible with the bacteria that causes it and provide other medicines to help resolve the complaint.
The following are recommendations related to fever in your child:
Make sure the child gets enough fluid intake Give loose and comfortable clothing Compress the forehead, armpits or between the thighs with a towel and warm nail water to help reduce fever Give hot drugs that are sold freely when needed, use the drug as recommended for use and immediately consult the child's doctor if complaints settled or worsened Hopefully useful,
