High Fever Suddenly Accompanied By A Red Rash On The Baby’s Skin?
Hello. I want to ask my child 5 months old, yesterday he had high heat, I bought parrasetamol in pharmacies for babies. After the heat went down, his mouth was full of canker sores and his skin was rash. Is it dangerous or not …
Hello Chyntia, thank you for asking.
High fever suddenly accompanied by a red rash on the baby's skin, generally caused by a viral infection. Viruses can affect the respiratory tract, digestive tract, or infection in general. Some examples of conditions that can occur in infants are:
Dengue hemorrhagic fever
Sprue in the mouth can be caused by fungal infections due to residual milk in the mouth that is not cleaned. Sprue can also be caused by conditions that are not optimal digestive tract.
You should consult this matter with your pediatrician. Doctors need to do a direct examination to be able to determine the diagnosis. Make sure when you give paracetamol, the dose is right and not excessive. Help reduce the heat of the baby with a compress of warm water or plain water (not cold water) on the forehead, armpits, and groin. If there is a febrile seizure, immediately loosen baby clothes, tilt the baby to the left, do not give drink when seizures, and do not use hard objects to prop your teeth.
Thus the information that I can convey, may be useful. Regards.
