Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Diarrhea and fever may indicate that your baby has an infection in the digestive tract, for example due to viruses (such as rotavirus), bacteria (such as salmonella), or parasites (such as amoeba). These digestive tract infections often occur because of the entry of pathogenic microorganisms through food or drinks that are contaminated by other patients' feces. Not only diarrhea and fever, digestive infections can also make your baby experience nausea, vomiting, bloating, colic, and many other complaints. As a result of the discomfort that arises because of this complaint, of course the baby also becomes more fussy, difficult to sleep, and decreased appetite.
Aside from digestive infections, your baby's condition may also indicate hepatitis, channel disorders or gallbladder (for example due to stones or inflammation), intestinal inflammation, food allergies or intolerance, poisoning, infections in other organ systems, and so on.
To be clear, you try to check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Through physical examination, blood tests, urine, feces, or also ultrasound, often the best treatment can be given. With this examination the potential for dangerous complications, such as dehydration and electrolyte balance disorders can also be minimized.
At this time, what you need to do:
Feed your baby more milk, do not give him extra milk, except on the advice of a doctor
Also give your baby more water to drink
Feed him a little but often, prioritizing the provision of foods that are soft and easy to digest
Make sure the food and drinks you give to the baby are clean and ripe
Give the baby paracetamol according to the doctor's recommended dosage while still having a fever
Compress the neck and armpits with warm water so that the fever subsides
do not panic
Hope this helps ...
