Antibiotics of the same compound medicine. But when I wait, I take 24 hours to take medicine, and I give the doctor a hot medicine a day. 4x If it is taken 3 times a day, the antibiotic is 3x 1 day, but there is no change in the heat. After taking the medicine, it will subside but 2 hours later, it will be hot again. Finally, on Tuesday night around 9 pm, take it to the hospital.

Thank you for the question.
The heat in children is indeed something that can worry mothers, we can understand that. Symptoms need to be explored again along with heat, such as coughing colds, sore throat, swallowing pain, ear pain, shortness of breath, digestive disorders such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation. In general, fever with cough can be caused by:
Upper respiratory tract infections, can come from the nose, tonsils (tonsils), throat, and vocal cords. This infection can be caused by a virus or bacteria, and usually will heal itself within 1-2 weeks if caused by a virus. Bronchopneumonia, usually accompanied by loud breathing sounds, shortness of breath, and chest traction when breathing. If you have received antibiotic therapy, then continue and finish it, and wait for the response until the antibiotic treatment is complete. However, if the fever persists after more than 2 weeks, the child has difficulty eating / drinking, there are signs of dehydration such as the eyes of the cowong and the child is not as active as usual, then you need to consult a doctor, be able to see a pediatrician or ENT specialist. The doctor will dig further complaints, examine the child's physical including listening to the sound of the child's lungs and look into the child's throat, and can check the blood for laboratory checks if there are signs of bacterial infection.
In the meantime, you can do advice at home:
Continue the therapy that has been given, such as heat-lowering drugs, concoctions, and antibiotics that have been prescribed previously. Warm water compress. Adequate nutrition and drinking so that children are not dehydrated. Avoid exposure to other people who are suffering from other diseases. Hope this helps ...
