Hello Telninoz275, Thank you for your question.
Someone is said to have diarrhea if they experience an increase in the frequency of bowel movements to be more than 3 times per day and are accompanied by the consistency of stools that become more fluid. Diarrhea accompanied by fever can be caused by intestinal infection / gastroenteritis due to:
bacterial infections such as typhus
parasitic infections such as amoeba
If you have experienced fever and other symptoms for 4 days, then it is recommended that you see a doctor for further examination before the symptoms get worse. Your doctor needs to ask about your complaints, examine you, and if necessary do other tests such as blood tests or stool examination. From this examination, the doctor will find out the cause and can provide treatment in accordance with your condition. If you do not get checked then it is not possible to find out the exact cause.
Please also do the following suggestions:
get enough rest for 7-9 hours every day
continue to consume nutritious food to maintain nutritional intake
avoid consuming spicy, oily, fatty and sweet foods
Limit consumption of fibrous foods
multiply the consumption of drinks such as water, coconut water, ORS, or broth to prevent dehydration
taking paracetamol to relieve fever and overcome muscle aches
always keep hands clean before eating and after going to the toilet
avoid the consumption of food and drinks that are not maintained clean
I hope this helps.
