Tonight, I want to ask, my child is currently 3 years old. About 21.30, I gave my child medicine from a doctor in the form of powder and syrup … But until 23.00 the heat did not go down, because the child had a history of seizures, I immediately tried to buy a fever-lowering medication through the anus … Just take medicine … Or if there is a pause and if there is how long … Before I say thank you …
Hello Sandhiyo, Thank you for the question.
Sorry, I cannot provide further information whether or not the drug may be given because of limited information regarding the drug content that your child has consumed before and the content of the drug you have purchased. If the content of the drug consumed by your child previously with the content of the drug you just bought is the same, then there must be a time lag for administering the drug. How long the time lag is, depends on what medicine you are giving. You can also follow the drug administration instructions that are listed on the medicine packaging. If you are in doubt, you should consult with your doctor further to prevent medication errors in your child.
Another thing you need to remember that in general, fever occurs because of an infection in the body. In children, this condition can also occur after immunization. Some infectious diseases that can cause fever are flu, ear infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, measles, and others. Fever can continue if the infection has not been treated. Therefore, if your child has had a fever for several days and has received treatment but it still happens, do not hesitate to go back to see your child to the doctor. The doctor will provide treatment in accordance with the condition of your child.
It is also recommended that you do the following suggestions:
monitor your child's body temperature regularly with a thermometer
do plain water compresses on the forehead, armpits and groin to help relieve fever
while maintaining your child's food and drink intake
avoid children from people who are sick
teach children to always maintain the cleanliness of both hands
I hope this helps.
