Fever Is Only In The Head And Stomach In A 1 Year Old Child Recovering From Typhus?
Hello. My child is 19 months old. I have a fever but my fever doesn’t go down. I have a fever in my head and my stomach. Before I had been in the lab. Tipes had been taken care of for 3 days. The hospital recovered for only 1 day. its comfortable. I have given ibuprofen, but fasidol does not go down … Gimnna? And what should I do?
Thank you for the question.
Determining whether a child has a fever or not, is not enough to do just by touching his body, including his head and stomach. First, you need to measure your child's body temperature using a standardized thermometer, and take measurements in the correct place depending on the type of thermometer (for example in the armpits, mouth, anus, or ears). Your child is said to have a fever if his body temperature rises more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. If not, then even if his head and stomach feel hot or warm, it is not appropriate to declare it as a fever.
If it is true that your child has a fever after recovering from typhus, then this could be reasonable as part of the recovery process after typhus. Or it could be, this fever indicates the presence of other infections, such as infections of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, and other organ systems. In addition to infections, side effects of some drugs, immune disorders, thyroid gland disorders, malignancies, and excessive heat exposure are also prone to trigger fever.
It's best if you first give your child paracetamol so the fever goes down. If after the drug is given the fever continues, then you can give the drug back every 4-6 hours. Balance the drug with a lot to give your child a drink, give him a variety of nutritious foods, increase physical contact with skin to skin, give him clothes that warm and absorb sweat, and compress his neck and armpits with warm water.
If this fever does not improve within 3 days, immediately check it back to the doctor or pediatrician for further treatment.
Hope this helps ...
