Hi Erwin,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Fever and cough with phlegm in children often occur due to respiratory infections. This infection can be caused by viruses or bacteria. The contraction of the abdominal muscles is severe enough when coughing can make the child vomit frequently. Alternatively, excessive phlegm buildup around the throat can trigger nausea, which also makes the child want to vomit.


Not only respiratory infections, fever, coughing and vomiting in children can also occur due to other factors, such as infections of other organ systems, allergies, GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus), and so on. Each of these possibilities can be distinguished by an in-person examination of a doctor.


Therefore, if the fever that your child has experienced has lasted for 3 days or more, you should not delay getting your child checked directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Usually, with a physical examination, the doctor is able to determine the best treatment. to do. However, if the complaint does not improve after administration of the drug, the doctor may also recommend further tests, such as blood tests, X-rays, or tissue smears from the throat to be examined in the laboratory.


As an initial treatment:

Give the child paracetamol medicine to help reduce the fever
Also give the child lots of drinking water (preferably warm temperatures)
Limit feeding and drinking in cold temperatures
Expand give children foods rich in vitamin C, such as guava juice, tomato juice, sprouts, strawberries
Keep children away from smoke, pollution, dust, pollen and other respiratory irritants
Didn't use AC or fan yet
Improve ventilation and sanitation in the neighborhood where the child lives
Let the child rest more
Avoid giving drugs (other than over-the-counter drugs) to children unless prescribed directly from a doctor

Hope it helps ..
