1 Answer:

Hi Idemar,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Fever and colds are 2 terms that have different meanings. Fever is defined as an increase in body temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, colds are a lay term that is often used to describe a set of symptoms, such as chills, muscle and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, frequent belching, and so on. Therefore, it is necessary to clarify first, what kind of complaints is your child currently experiencing?

If you really mean fever, then the most likely cause is an infection. This infection is easy to attack babies considering their immune system is still weak. The cause of the infection can be viral or bacterial. This infection can occur in the respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, and other organ systems. To distinguish them, it is necessary to first clarify what the symptoms are.

In addition to infection, fever can also occur due to exposure to extreme temperatures (eg heat, rain), hyperthyroidism (hyperactive thyroid gland), cancer, and so on.

If the new complaint lasts 1 to 3 days, you can do the following tips first:

Give your child breast milk whenever he needs Wear comfortable clothes that absorb sweat Compress the baby's neck, armpit, or groin with warm water Increase direct skin-to-skin contact with the child. get the best treatment ya..

I hope this helps.
