Need to clarify, what is the exact temperature of your child's body? Are there any other complaints your child is experiencing?
Normal body temperature, both in children and adults, is around 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius. A person is said to have hyperthermia or fever when his body temperature rises to more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. This condition will usually make it easier for children to sweat, fuss, and have trouble sleeping.
Some of the triggers of hyperthermia or fever that often occur in children are:
Exposure to extreme environmental temperatures, it can be too hot, it can also be too cold Post immunization Having an infection, it could be due to viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms, for example ARI (acute respiratory infection), tooth and gum infections, dengue fever, typhoid fever, infections urinary tract, meningitis, and so on Immune system disorders, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis Cancer (malignant tumor) Side effects of blood transfusion Hyperthyroidism (hyperactive thyroid gland) Drug side effects, etc. Meanwhile, hypothermia occurs when the body temperature drops less than 35 degrees Celsius. This condition can occur due to excessive cold air exposure, for example when climbing mountains, wearing wet clothes, and so on. It could also be, hypothermia occurs due to disturbances in the temperature regulation center in the brain (as occurs in premature babies), side effects of alcohol and drug consumption, hypothyroidism, stroke, drug side effects, and various other conditions.
If what your child experiences is an increase in body temperature above the normal value above, then the first steps you should take are:
Increase physical skin to skin contact with children Compress the neck, armpits, or groin area with warm water Give the child comfortable clothes and absorb sweat Let the child rest more Give the child drink lots of water Give the child paracetamol medication according to the doctor's recommended dose Avoid giving other drugs carelessly If the fever does not get better within 3 days, then you should check it directly with a doctor or pediatrician so that further treatment is given.
I hope this helps.
