Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Fever or Febris is one of the symptoms of a disease characterized by an increase in body temperature above 37.8 degrees Celsius. Normal body temperature is 36.1-37.2 degrees Celsius. Whereas 37.2-37.8 degrees Celsius is called subfebris.
Many things can cause fever symptoms, namely:
1. Dehydration or lack of body fluids.
2. Exposed to heat.
3. Caused by certain drugs.
4. Infectious diseases, both bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites.
6. Autoimmune diseases, namely the body's immune system against the body's own normal cells.
Mothers should consult with an obstetrician in charge. Symptoms of fever experienced by the mother may be related to an illness that requires special treatment. Later, obstetrician specialists will consult the condition of this mother with specialists in internal medicine if necessary.
Meanwhile, you consume lots of water. Pregnant women need more water intake than before pregnancy, coupled with symptoms of fever makes the mother's need for water becomes even more increased. If the fever is high, mothers can take paracetamol fever-lowering drugs, this drug is safe for consumption by pregnant women. Mothers can also compress the forehead, neck and armpits using a towel soaked in warm water.
Thus hopefully useful.
