Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever in children there are many possible causes. Some of the most common are due to excessive heat exposure, post-immunization, and viral and bacterial infections. This fever can have different treatments depending on the cause. However, in general, to relieve fever in children, you can do the following steps:
Compress the neck, armpits and / or groin of the child with warm water
Give children clothes that are comfortable and warm, and absorb sweat
Increase physical contact with children (skin to skin)
Give children plenty to drink, including breast milk
Keep feeding children, even a little, but often
Do not let children hawk carelessly, let alone consume foods that are not hygienically processed
Give the child paracetamol as prescribed by the doctor
If your child vomits after taking paracetamol, you can give it a little at a time
As an alternative, paracetamol drop type paracetamol containing higher concentrations is now available, making it easier for children to consume it, because it does not require more volume of administration.
It doesn't matter if you regurgitate the medicine, the important thing is that some of the drugs have gotten into the body
Let your child get plenty of rest, reduce the tiring playing activities first
Do not carelessly give other drugs to children without a doctor's prescription
However, if the fever does not subside within 3 days, or if your child experiences more severe complaints, for example massive vomiting (more than 5 times a day), bowel obstruction, convulsions, loss of consciousness, redness of the skin rash, etc. immediately check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician in order to get the right treatment huh ..
I hope this helps.
