Hello Mr. Andrew,


Fever is a symptom that indicates the body is fighting an infection that occurs. Fever more than 3 days is not always caused by DHF, but your concern can be understood given that currently there are many dengue events. Flu and cough can also cause fever, and usually will heal by itself within a few days. Paracetamol can help to reduce fever, but dexamethasone should not be given without medical supervision and clear indications.


Fever is not a disease but a symptom, and the fever will subside if the underlying disease has disappeared. If you have not taken your child for a doctor's consultation, you should immediately consult a doctor to get a complete examination. Maybe the cause of the fever is another disease, a thorough examination needs to be done to determine the focus of the infection.


The causes of fever in children include:

Respiratory tract infections, such as colds, strep throat, tonsillitis (tonsillitis)
Gastrointestinal infections, such as gastroenteritis
Other viral infections, such as DHF, chikungunya, smallpox, measles
Other bacterial infections such as tuberculosis, typhoid
Urinary tract infection
Nerve formation infections, such as meningitis or encephalitis
Autoimmune disease


There are so many other causes. You need to take your child to the doctor immediately if:

Children look very weak
Do not want / can not eat and drink
There is severe pain
Hands and feet moist and cold
Fever does not go down in 5 days
Impaired awareness, not communicative when spoken to
