Hello. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
Fever is a form of the body's physiological response to disease. In general, the various possible causes of acute fever (fever lasting less than 2 weeks) can be grouped into 2 groups, including:
Systemic infections, for example: viral infections, malaria, dengue fever, leptospirosis, typhoid fever Focused organ infections, for example: upper respiratory tract infections, pneumonia (lung infection), urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections, central nervous system infections Pregnant women can visit general practitioners and obstetricians and obstetricians when experiencing fever problems. If a referral to a specialist from a particular midwife is needed, a general practitioner or obstetrician and obstetrician who treats you can refer you by considering the results of the initial evaluation that has been done. While going to the doctor, for a while you can use over-the-counter fever remedies, for example: paracetamol, at a dosage following the rules of use listed on the drug packaging. You are also advised to get enough rest, drink plenty of water, and eat nutritionally balanced foods regularly.
