How Long Does The Fever In A Child Get A Lung Infection?
Dear doctor, I have a 3-year-old child 6 months already treated at the hospital this week, the doctor said he has a lung infection that I want to ask one day after leaving the hospital. Why does my child’s body still have a fever? Yach?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fever is one of the most common symptoms, especially in children. Fever occurs due to various things, such as hormones that work excessively, abnormalities in the brain, exposure to a hot environment, but most often is due to infection, both by viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites, in various parts of the body. Can be an ear infection, urinary tract infection, lung infection, digestive tract infections, typhus, dengue, smallpox and so forth.
So in the case of your child, we cannot confirm whether the fever he is still experiencing is a disease that has not completely healed and requires longer treatment, recovery process, or a new condition. The most able to answer it is actually a doctor who treats your child directly.
Our advice, you should still give the medicine prescribed to your child by a doctor when discharged regularly. If indeed the condition does not improve even though the medicine has run out, go back to the same doctor for control. In addition, make sure your child is away from sick people, cigarette smoke, and pollution, make sure he consumes lots of water and vegetables and fruit. So, hopefully answering your question.
