Infants 8 Months Of Excessive Sweating After Recovering From Fever?
After catching a fever, I keep taking medicine, so I keep sweating, my sweat is not salty, my fever has cured, but I keep sweating until now, I sweat excessively, my hands and feet are cold.
Hello Yeni, thanks for asking.
Fever is a symptom that occurs when the body experiences infection and inflammation. Not only that, fever can also occur when the body is dehydrated or due to other causes. Body temperature that rises above normal causes the body's cell functions to not be able to work normally. Therefore, the body must dispose of excessive body heat.
The mechanism of body heat dissipation can occur through:
Sweat. So that in people with fever, especially after taking medication, excessive sweating will occur.
Steam breathing. Can be seen in children or adults who have a fever, an increase in respiratory rate.
Urine When fever, urine feels hotter, because it is one of the mechanisms of heat dissipation.
Then the sweat experienced by your baby is reasonable. Instead it shows that the mechanism of spending your baby's body heat works well. The thing you need to remember is, do not wear thick clothes when the child has a fever or post-fever, and give a lot of drinking to the child to reduce the risk of dehydration and to trigger the discharge of heat through urine.
Fever is concentrated in the middle of the body so it is natural that the tips of the hands and feet are colder. If your baby looks weak, continues to be sleepy, does not want to drink, decreased urinating, dry lips and skin, and sunken crown, immediately take your baby to the doctor. If you do not get these signs, you can provide optimal eating and drinking and watch the baby closely.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
