Hello Anthie, Thank you for the question.
A person is said to have a fever when his body temperature reaches more than 37.2 degrees Celsius if measured with a thermometer in the armpit area. In general, fever is the body's reaction to fight infections that enter the body. Fever is usually accompanied by other symptoms such as coughing, runny nose, earache, sore throat, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea / constipation, headache, bibs or joint pain, skin rashes, and others. The following are some of the diseases that can cause complaints that your child experiences:
intestinal infections caused by viruses, bacteria (including typhus), parasitic, hepatitis A dengue fever and others If this complaint does not improve even after undergoing treatment from a doctor, you should check your child's condition to the doctor first. The doctor will again inquire further about your child's symptoms and examine your child. If necessary, the doctor will recommend supporting examinations such as blood tests, stool examinations, ultrasound, and others. You should not do a blood test yourself because the doctor will determine what blood tests are appropriate to determine the cause of your child's complaints. Furthermore, the results of this blood test will later be linked to information about your child's symptoms and physical examination by a doctor to make a diagnosis. Therefore, you should please go back to see a doctor.
