Fever With A Rash On The Face?
Good afternoon .. I want to ask .. because the doctor from the KMC doctor and the clinic doctor gave a different answer .. My child was Monday last week with a cold cough fever .. Then I took treatment to the KMK but until the medicine runs out the child hasn’t changed .. And yesterday night I took treatment again to the clinic again because only on my child’s face initially there was a bump like being bitten by a mosquito … but until now it even widened and his fever did not go down … but this disease arises .. And from the clinic, if I don’t have milk allergy and may drink milk … So I’m confused what my child is sick of … Before that, thank you for your attention …
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
How old is your child now? Complaints of acute fever (fever lasting less than 2 weeks) accompanied by the appearance of a skin rash can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Measles, which is a viral infection that is easily transmitted through coughing and sneezing (respiratory tract), symptoms: high fever, cough, runny nose and / or red eyes, and reddish spots on the skin that generally starts from the hairline behind the ear and then spreads to face and locomotor
Chicken pox, a disease caused by a varicella-zoster virus infection that attacks the skin and mucosa, symptoms: fever, weakness, and headaches, then a rash on the skin in the form of reddish bruntus which turns into fluid-filled fluid resins can also pus-filled, then broken, and dry, usually a rash on the skin spreads centrifugally, that is from the body, then to the face, locomotor, mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth, and upper respiratory tract
Dengue virus infection, which is a disease caused by dengue virus infection, transmitted through Aedes mosquitoes, symptoms: acute fever with a saddle pattern of a horse, headache, aches, red spots on the skin)
We recommend that your child be examined directly by a pediatrician so that evaluation and treatment can be carried out accordingly. The doctor may plan a supplementary examination if there are indications, for example a blood test. At home, you are advised to ensure that your child bathes regularly, wash their clothes regularly, drink plenty of water, and can be given heat-reducing medications such as paracetamol. Don't delay seeing a doctor if bleeding occurs, such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums, bowel movements with black stool, vomiting blood, or red urine.
