Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should explain first, what is the exact age of your child at this time and what is his body temperature when you measure with a thermometer? Did the fever go down after the medicine was given, or did it go down but went up again? Are there other symptoms that you find in your child besides the fever?
Fever in children most often occurs due to infection. The fever can actually help the child's immune system to work better to fight infections in the body. Therefore you actually do not need to worry too much when your child has a fever. However, there are some symptoms and signs that you should pay attention to:
If your child is under 3 months old, immediately take the child to the hospital if you have a fever with a body temperature reaching 38 degrees Celsius or more If the child is older than 3 months and his body temperature reaches 39 degrees Celsius or more, immediately take the child to the doctor children If the child is more than 3 months old and has a fever for more than 3 days, immediately take it to the pediatrician. If the child experiences symptoms such as seizures, loss of consciousness, the child becomes inactive, very weak, and sleep continuously, the child experiences pain great head, the child experiences vomiting until he cannot drink at all, there are signs of severe dehydration, there is spontaneous bleeding, there is bleeding that cannot stop on its own, the child is seen experiencing shortness of breath, his lips turn blue or very pale, or symptoms other symptoms that worry you, immediately take them to the hospital. If your child only has a fever, there are no other worrying symptoms as mentioned above, the child looks still actively playing, then you don't need to worry too much. If until the third day the fever still does not go down, take the child to the doctor again for further evaluation (such as a laboratory examination).
For now, you can give medicine as instructed by the doctor. You have to make sure the child drinks more when he has a fever because he is more easily dehydrated when he has a fever and dehydration will make the fever not go down. Give food that is healthy as all children want, but still make sure you try to provide food for children.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
