Hot Body And Chills That Never Heal?
… my child is 10 years old, experiencing hot pain right now, when in the afternoon his body is shivering. Coughing, headaches, there are out of the house in his hands and feet, but without nausea and vomiting. After 10hr, he is sick, I have brought it to the doctor and checked the blood, he said it’s okay. There is no indication of typhus or dengue fever. But why was it until 10hrs hot and the dizziness didn’t heal?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Conditions experienced by your child can range from acute respiratory infections, smallpox, measles, Kawasaki disease, Scarlet fever, Singapore flu, and many more. To be sure, the condition must be seen directly, because there are so many conditions that at a glance are similar. Even a low leukocyte lab result doesn't help much, because low leukocytes cannot be a special feature of a disease.
So far your steps to check your child are correct. It's just that if the condition doesn't improve, especially since it's already been 10 days, you have to check it back. If previously new to a GP, this time consult a pediatrician. If you have previously been to a pediatrician, then return to the doctor for evaluation. If he said at your last meeting that your child has no problems, it might be because at that time there were still early fever. But after 10 days, his opinion may change, and maybe the doctor will ask for further examination. If you are in doubt about the previous doctor's examination, you may seek a second opinion from a pediatrician at another hospital. What is clear, to be able to determine the conditions and next steps, a direct inspection must be done.
Meanwhile, if possible, your child should rest at home first, so that he does not get tired during school which can complicate recovery and also so that he does not spread to other friends. Meet the nutritional needs, warm compresses on the forehead, bathe or soak in warm water, consume warm food and drinks, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
