How To Deal With Babies Aged 9 Months Diarrhea, Vomiting, And Fever?
Good afternoon, my son arsya is 9 months old, has diarrhea accompanied by vomiting and fever, before that the children had been treated twice diarrhea right, doctors diagnosed lactose intolerance ..
Thank you for the question.
Diarrhea, vomiting, and fever in infants may indicate an infection, can be limited to the digestive system, or other organ systems. The cause of this infection is often a virus (for example rotavirus, adenovirus), although this condition can also arise due to bacterial or parasitic infections. Lactose intolerance can worsen the diarrhea and vomiting that your baby is experiencing. However, lactose intolerance should not necessarily make the baby have a fever. In addition, your baby's condition may also be triggered by intestinal inflammation, food malabsorption, food poisoning, food allergies, metabolic disorders, hepatitis, pancreatitis, cholangitis, drug side effects, and so on.
If it has been 3 days or more, your baby has a fever, or more than 10 times a day, your baby has vomiting and diarrhea, you should check him directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be given the best treatment, it is feared that late treatment is given will increase the risk of your baby experiencing serious complications, such as dehydration, electrolyte balance disorders, malnutrition, seizures, and so on. As a first step, you can do:
Give the baby more milk and water
Do not carelessly give baby extra milk besides breast milk before the age of 1 year
Give your baby also MPASI that is easy to digest, according to his age standard
Do not over-feed babies with vegetables and fruits that are high in fiber, gassed and bersantan
Make sure you only feed your baby clean and cooked food and drinks
Don't overfeed baby food
Relieve baby's fever by giving him paracetamol and increasing skin-to-skin physical contact with him
