How To Deal With Fever Up And Down In Children 1.5 Years?
How to handle compresses for the temperature of children aged 1.5 years?
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what is the exact body temperature of your child? Are there certain complaints that arise? Have you checked your child to the doctor for these complaints?
Normal body temperature in children is in the range of 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius. Body temperature measurements are ideally carried out with standardized measuring devices (thermometers) in the right way. So, it's not just about guessing ...
Child's body temperature up and down can be a reasonable condition or not. Generally, if your child's body temperature range is still above the normal values above, the condition is not dangerous, and it also does not need to be given certain compresses. Normal body temperature will indeed rise and fall depending on the speed of metabolism. Usually, the body temperature will rise naturally when the child has been exposed to excessive heat, exhausted heavy physical activity, finished eating, being anxious or afraid, or also consume certain types of drugs.
You should be vigilant if the child's body temperature drops less than 35 degrees Celsius (hypothermia), or rises more than 37.5 degrees Celsius (hyperthermia). In this condition, it is necessary to further evaluate the possible cause by a doctor or pediatrician. Because, different causes, of course there will be different handling to overcome them.
With regard to your question, unfortunately you do not explain in detail as to what your child's body temperature is and what complaints are experienced. Therefore, it was difficult for us to determine what compressing technique was right for her as initial treatment.
Our advice, try to measure his body temperature properly, and check it with a doctor or pediatrician if abnormal body temperature is found.
Hope this helps ...
