More Frequent Sleep Recovery Process After Illness?
afternoon, I want to ask, yesterday my child was hot for 2 days, it did not go down, finally I took it to the midwife, said the midwife is okay, this is because of tiredness, because my daughter is very active, and given medicine, the medicine was taken 2 days the heat did not even stable, sometimes high, sometimes the temperature is normal, but the heat can rise again later, finally I take it to the general practitioner, the doctor said it’s okay, but if the medicine runs out the heat is still up and down, ask for a blood check, because of the fear of DHF, the medicine hasn’t run out thank you God the heat has gone down and it’s stable, but now my son sleeps a lot, then he sleeps at 3 pm, at 4 in the morning he just builds, and now he sleeps again from 9 until he doesn’t wake up, if he wakes up angry, why is that? thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever in children often occurs due to viral or bacterial infections. Not only dengue fever, various types of other infections can also cause child fever, for example airway infections, urinary tract infections, typhoid fever, measles, Singapore flu, ear infections, and so on. These infections are often transmitted from other people who have close contact with them. Not only fever, due to infection, children also often experience a variety of other complaints that can differ depending on the type of infection.
The decrease in fever that your child is experiencing can indeed indicate a good condition. However, in some cases, it can also be the opposite (worsening). Your child who sleeps more often can be normal due to part of the recovery process after illness, it can also indicate dangerous conditions, for example due to anemia, hypotension, dehydration, hypoglycemia, malnutrition, disorders in the brain, shock (shock), and so.
If you find this complaint very worrying (very unusual), you should check it back to the doctor or pediatrician so that his condition can be treated further, including for example by supporting examinations, such as laboratories, and so on.
At this time, what you need to do:
Even if you sleep a lot, make sure your child always eats and drinks enough. Vary the child's diet, make sure the nutrition is fulfilled properly. Give him healthy snacks, for example cut fruit, smoothies. Invite your child to do activities that he likes, such as playing, drawing, reading stories, and so on. Do not carelessly give children drugs without a doctor's prescription.
