Hello dudu abdulah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever in children is a common thing. Children are said to have a fever if the temperature is> 37.6 degrees Celsius. To ensure fever in children should use a temperature measuring instrument or thermometer because it will be more accurate. Fever in children can be caused by various things, including:
- Infection in the upper respiratory tract that will cause complaints such as cough, runny nose, sore throat in children.
- Infection of the ear
- Urinary tract infections
- Infections of the lungs, such as pneumonia, bronchitis, TB
- Typhoid / Typhus
There are various things that can cause you to become feverish. Here's what you can do at home to reduce fever in children: use warm water compresses on the child's forehead, give children heat-lowering drugs such as paracetamol syrup (give according to your child's dose, read the rules of use correctly), avoid using thick clothes on children , avoid using thick blankets on children, give children good nutrition, maintain a comfortable room temperature for children, take a bath with warm water, and provide adequate fluids for children.
If the complaint does not seem to improve or is getting worse, then you should do a direct examination with a doctor.
If you experience complaints such as seizures, vomiting, decreased appetite or no appetite at all, the child feels weak and pale, then take it to the doctor immediately.
