Hello Ms. Yuniyu! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever is the body's defense mechanism in response to infection. There are several types of infectious diseases, especially viral infections, which can cause fever with a rash. Children with fever with a rash can usually experience redness in their eyes. Children who have a fever for more than 3 days should immediately be taken to see a doctor, especially a pediatrician. The doctor will ask in more detail about the symptoms experienced. The doctor will also examine the child directly to find out possible illnesses experienced by children. If necessary, your doctor may recommend laboratory tests to help confirm the disease you are experiencing. The doctor will provide treatment in accordance with the results of the examination. You can ask in more detail about the disease with the doctor who examined your child. At home, make sure your child gets enough to drink. Keep giving ASI and complementary foods for children. Avoid wearing clothes that are too thick for children. Take your child immediately to the nearest emergency room if the child has a high fever, convulsions, tightness, or his hands and feet feel cold.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
