Good evening, thanks for the question
Fever is not a disease, but a symptom of the underlying disease. Generally, fever occurs as a response to the immune system to deal with infections that are happening in the body, can be a germ or virus infection.
Other causes of fever in infants include:
2. As a result of clothes that are too thick or prolonged outdoor activities during hot weather
The first thing parents need to do is make sure the baby has a fever using a thermometer, and not just touch the forehead. Temperature is best measured through the baby's anus using digital temperature. If you get a temperature exceeding 38 degrees Celsius, it is classified as a fever and it needs to be checked by a doctor.
Other symptoms that are often associated with fever in infants are:
1. Difficulty sleeping
2. Breastfeeding decreases
3. Not actively playing
8. Skin rashes appear
If fever occurs in infants under the age of 3 months, you should immediately consult a doctor to get to rule out the possibility of a serious condition and in order to get adequate treatment. Medicines should also be based on doctor's recommendations after an examination. To prevent dehydration due to high fever, it must be breastfed more often than usual.
That's all, hope you can help
