Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Fever or febrile is one symptom that indicates there is a problem in the body. Fever is characterized by a body temperature above 37.8 degrees Celsius. While the body temperature of 37.2-37.8 degrees Celsius is called subfebris. Normal body temperature ranges from 36.1 to 37.2 degrees Celsius.
Fever can indicate the following conditions, namely:
1. Dehydration or lack of body fluids. Try to check the baby's big fontanel, does it feel concave? If yes, indicates that the baby is in a state of lack of body fluids. Mothers can breastfeed their babies or give formula milk if breast milk is deemed insufficient for now. Then the mother must increase the portion and nutritional value of daily food so that it is sufficient to meet the baby's milk needs. Complete the mother's nutrition with a minimum of a glass of milk a day.
2. Exposed to hot air temperatures.
3. Viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal infections.
5. Autoimmune diseases
We recommend that you bring the baby in consultation with a pediatrician. This is because it is difficult for ordinary people to detect whether there are signs of a disease being experienced by the baby. For that we need an examination by a pediatrician.
Meanwhile, the mother can give the child a paracetamol drop whose dosage is according to the child's weight. Compress with a towel soaked in warm water on the baby's forehead, neck and underarms.
Thus hopefully useful.
