Hi Sri, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

A decrease in the number of leukocytes and platelets can be caused by many possibilities. The most common possibility when accompanied by fever symptoms is a viral infection. Various viral infections can cause this, for example viral infections of dengue fever, cytomegalovirus, rubella, measles, and so on. Other possible causes include other infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, aplastic anemia, deficiencies of certain nutrients, side effects of drugs, and so on.

To be able to ascertain the cause, it's a good idea to bring your child to the Pediatrician, especially because the fever that is experienced has entered the 6th day. In general, leukopenia (decrease in the number of leukocytes) and thrombocytopenia (decrease in the number of platelets) that are not too severe will not cause certain problems or symptoms in children, but the cause of the decrease must be investigated because some of the causes can be dangerous if not treated properly.

For now, you can overcome the fever and discomfort experienced by children by administering fever drugs such as paracetamol. Make sure to give children enough to drink to prevent dehydration, and try to provide nutritious meals in sufficient quantities for children.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
