Thank you for your question


A fever accompanied by a rash or reddish spots like what your child is experiencing can be caused by various things, including:


Measles/morbili/measles : generally before the rash appears, the patient will experience a cough, runny nose, accompanied by red eyes, when the fever is high then a rash appears which starts behind the ears. Because it is caused by a virus, it is treated with a supportive approach or medication to reduce the severity of symptoms only.


German measles/ Rubella : generally not a high fever, also accompanied by swollen lymph nodes. Treatment is the same as measles.


Scarlet fever: caused by co-infection with Streptococcus bacteria. the appearance of a rash with a high fever, also accompanied by complaints of sore throat / pharyngitis.


Dengue fever: fever can be quite high accompanied by the appearance of red spots, especially in the elbow area, which indicates a leak in blood vessels. Apart from that, dengue fever can also cause complaints of nausea, vomiting, dizziness, weakness and body aches, and complaints of nosebleeds, bleeding gums, and black bowel movements can also occur. This condition occurs due to decreased levels of platelets in the blood. Treatment is done by alleviating symptoms alone or supportive.


Drug allergies or certain food allergies.


Other conditions.


So you can understand that there are quite a number of conditions that can cause fever and rashes in your child. According to your initial question, anyone can experience dengue fever, even small children or toddlers if they are indeed bitten by a mosquito carrying the dengue virus that causes dengue fever. To determine what disease your child is experiencing, you should consult and have your child examined by the nearest doctor. Ideally, supporting examinations such as blood tests can be carried out if your child has a fever for 2-3 days in a row. Your child's treatment will later be adjusted to the medical condition that underlies your child's illness. There are several things you can do at home to deal with your child's complaints:


Give your child fever-reducing drugs such as paracetamol or ibuprofen every 6-8 hours. Medicine for nausea, if indeed your child is nauseous.


Warm compresses, especially in the folds of the body.


Take a shower with warm water or simply wipe with a damp cloth.


Make sure your child drinks enough water every day.


Don't force your child to eat a lot, because it will be difficult for children to eat if they are sick. Make sure your child continues to eat smaller portions, but with a more frequent frequency (for example, every hour).


Rest your child.


You can give your child anti-itch medications such as loratadine or ceterizin if the rash feels itchy or sprinkle salycil powder if it itches.


Change your child's clothes if you feel they are sweating too much.


Hope this answer helps you.
