A fever with a runny nose is most likely a sign that your child has a respiratory infection. This infection can occur limited to the nasal cavity (rhinitis), or it can also be in other parts of the respiratory tract, such as the sinuses (sinusitis), throat (pharyngitis), bronchi (bronchitis), to the lungs (pneumonia). It could also be that the infection your child is experiencing actually occurs in another organ system, but has flu-like prodromal symptoms, such as dengue fever, typhoid fever, malaria, measles, ear infections, urinary tract infections, and so on.
When experiencing an infection, the body will produce many inflammatory mediators that increase the temperature regulation set point in the hypothalamus. As a result, the body may shiver to increase heat production. Shivering does not specifically refer to a particular disease.
Our advice, considering that your child's complaints have been going on for more than 3 days, you should immediately consult a doctor. Through a physical evaluation by assessing other complaints that arise, a physical examination, or also supporting tests, such as blood tests or urine tests, the doctor can generally determine the focus of the infection and determine the best treatment. In addition to fever relievers, doctors can also prescribe other medicines, such as antibiotics, if a bacterial infection is suspected.
At this time, you can do the following steps first:
Give the child paracetamol every 6 to 8 hours according to the doctor's recommended dose to reduce the fever. Keep the child from exposure to cold temperatures, dust, and excessive pollution. Give the child lots of warm water. family who are coughing colds Hope it helps ya..
