Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of fever accompanied by a sore throat, cough, and decreased appetite can be caused by several possibilities, which include:
Pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharyngeal wall, caused mainly by viruses, symptoms: fever that is not too high, sore throat, coughing, red eyes, runny nose)
Tonsillitis (inflammation of the palatine tonsils, symptoms: fever, sore throat, cough, enlarged neck lymph nodes, and commonly in conjunction with pharyngitis)
Colds (also called common cold, which is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, symptoms: fever, sneezing, nasal congestion, coughing, body aches, headaches)
To help reduce fever, you can give your child paracetamol at a dose following the instructions listed on the drug packaging. You are advised to take your child to the doctor immediately if there are any of the following signs / symptoms:
Complaints did not improve within 3 days of treatment with paracetamol and adequate rest
There is bleeding, either in the form of nosebleeds, bleeding gums, red spots on the skin, defecation in black or fresh red, or bloody urine
The body gets limp and the heart / pulse beats fast or it doesn't feel palpable
At home, patients are recommended to:
Wash hands with soap and running water before eating and drinking
Eat a balanced nutritious diet, including fruits and vegetables that contain lots of vitamin C
Minimization of contact with others who have similar complaints
