Fever can be caused by many diseases, some of which are most common in children:
Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) is a viral or bacterial infection in the respiratory tract, which causes symptoms of cough, runny nose, accompanied by Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a disease caused by a dengue virus infection that enters the human body through mosquito bites. Symptoms between another is a fever that can reach 40 degrees Celsius or more for 4-7 days, abdominal pain, vomiting, weakness, and spontaneous bleeding, such as in the nose, gums, under the skin, urine, feces, or vomiting. Typhus (typhus) or typhoid fever is a disease caused by a bacterial infection of Salmonella typhii. Symptoms can be high, which can reach 39 ° C-40 ° C, higher at night, for more than 7 days, dirty tongue, muscle aches, headache, stomach pain, digestive disorders, enlarged organs in the stomach, and daze. Normally, a disease caused by a virus can heal itself without special treatment. Medicines containing methisoprinol are used to increase endurance and cure diseases caused by infections caused by viruses, not bacteria, so it must be with the approval of the doctor who has examined your child first.
If the fever has been going on for a long time, there is spontaneous bleeding, and the child is getting weaker, then I suggest you to bring your child to consult directly with a pediatrician, so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as questions and answers, vital signs, physical examination of the eyes, throat , chest, abdomen and skin, and supporting examinations such as routine blood laboratories, so that treatment can be given according to your child's diagnosis.
The things that you can do for your child right now are:
Providing fever-lowering drugs containing paracetamol, with the dosage listed on the packaging of the drug. Keep providing nutritional intake of food and drinks as usual to prevent dehydration and improve the defense of your child's body. Maintain the cleanliness of food, drinks, and tools, then your child to prevent bacterial contamination from entering through digestive tract Increase consumption of foods rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C, to increase endurance. However, make sure your child has eaten heavy food beforehand. Make sure your child gets enough rest. Thus the information I can give, hopefully can help you.
