Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Based on complaints made by the mother, several conditions can be related to the child's mother, including:
1. Viral infections
2. Bacterial infections
3. Autoimmune diseases
4. Blood cancer
5. And others
Generally a high fever indicates a viral infection has occurred. However, the fever will not last long, on the third day there will be an improvement in the condition. Generally the fifth day has healed. Usually the fever will not be more than one week. In a fever that fluctuates and lasts more than one week, it is necessary to examine antibodies against salmonella thipii and salmonella parathipii bacteria. These bacteria cause typhoid or typhoid fever.
If you are worried, you should take the child to consult another pediatrician at the hospital polyclinic. Ask your doctor about the wishes of the child's mother to be admitted to the hospital.
Meanwhile, let me note, have you given the child a fever-lowering medication in accordance with the dose the child needs? Generally, if it is right, the fever will go down for at least 4 hours. Mothers can also compress the child with a warm cloth to help reduce fever. Give children a nutritious food, which is high in calories and high in protein so that it can improve the child's immune system against the disease. Give children to drink lots of water, because the need for fever will increase. Lack of body fluids will worsen a child's fever. If the child is still breast milk, milk as often as possible yes.
