Is It True That Traditional Earthworm Medicines Can Reduce Heat?
good afternoon … want to ask if earthworms really can cure the heat of fever in babies ..
Thank you for the question.
Fever heat is a sign that the body is making improvements to fight disease by raising the temperature in the body. Fever can be a sign of a virus or bacterial infection or a sign of dehydration. If a child has a fever, of course it can make parents worried. However, usually the fever can go away on its own and can be treated with drugs that can be purchased at pharmacies.
To treat heat in infants at home, you can do:
Warm compresses on baby's forehead.
Give heat relievers such as paracetamol which can be dropped into the baby's mouth.
Provide adequate nutrition and fluids to the baby.
Keep in mind that until now there have been no studies that prove that herbal medicines including earthworms can cure fever in babies. While heat-lowering drugs such as paracetamol have been proven safe and can reduce fever in infants, so this is simple enough to be given to babies.
See a doctor immediately if the baby:
High fever (more than 39C) due to the risk of seizures.
Looks weak and inactive.
Vomiting or diarrhea continuously.
Fever more than three days.
So that doctors can evaluate and determine the cause of fever, then provide appropriate treatment.
I hope this helps :)
