How To Deal With Newborns With High Fever?
my child is only 2 days old, suddenly has a high fever? What should be done? Please inform. Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Fever is an unspecified symptom, especially in children who are only 2 days old. Everything can cause fever, especially infections of various kinds of bacteria, infections of various kinds of viruses, fungi, and parasites.
To overcome this, if the fever is high, or exceeds 38 degrees, and the child is lazy to drink, seems weak, or you are not sure of the temperature of the fever because you do not have a thermometer, our advice is do not do independent handling and immediately take your child to the pediatrician or The nearest hospital emergency room is not possible to go to a specialist immediately. This is because the handling of children whose age is still as early as that will be different, must not be careless and must be accompanied by strict supervision.
Meanwhile, if the fever is still not too high, and your child is still active, continue to breastfeed for his endurance, avoid the sick, dust, pollution and smoke, and wash your hands before touching it. So, hopefully answering your question.
