Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fever is a sign that the body is detecting bacterial and viral infections, and if this happens, it's likely that the person's immune system is weak. Regarding your question, if your child's fever is caused by a tuberculosis drug, that means the drug is making the immune system down, even though there is no such effect. The drug should actually support the body's immune system by helping to kill the bacteria that causes spots on the lung.
So that the fever conditions experienced by your child may occur due to conditions separate from the administration of the drug. Could be due to lung spots, or because of other infections, such as viral infections in the ear, the urinary system, the nose, or in other parts. This can also be caused by other diseases such as typhus, dengue fever or chikungunya. Our advice, if this fever continues, you should check your child to the pediatrician to find out the possibility of the disease through a series of historical excavations, physical examination and may also be supportive if it is deemed necessary. The handling that will be received later depends on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, it is not a problem to keep giving PCT in syrup form, as long as it is in accordance with the rules of use. But if it has been more than 3 days given the PCT does not also improve, you should immediately take it to the doctor. In addition, also meet the nutritional needs and fluids, keep away from the sick, encourage him to rest more, compress his forehead with warm compresses, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
