The fever that occurs in your child seems to be due to coughing up phlegm. Where coughing up phlegm indicates the child is experiencing an airway infection caused by bacteria. In addition, children may also experience tonsils or tonsillitis. This is characterized by the child snoring during sleep. Snoring during sleep can occur due to airway obstruction, such as tonsillitis. The cause of fever up and down in children may be due to respiratory infections and tonsils (tonsils) that have not been overcome.
Mothers can give children over-the-counter fever-reducing medicines, such as paracetamol. Reducing a child's fever can also be done by compressing the child's forehead, neck and armpits with a warm compress. Give children lots of water to deal with their fever and cough. Especially warm water. You can also give natural cough medicines, which are squeezed oranges mixed with honey then brewed with warm water. This natural cough remedy is good, usually children love it. Hopefully this is also the case with your child. In addition, children also need phlegm cough medicine and antibiotics that are appropriate to overcome the suspicion of bacterial infections as the cause.
For this reason, mothers should consult with a pediatrician. So that doctors can conduct the necessary direct examination. Furthermore, doctors can provide appropriate treatment according to the cause.
Thus hopefully useful.
