Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Fever is one of the conditions most often experienced by infants and children, because fever is not a specific condition. Fever can occur when a baby's body is infected by various types of bacteria and viruses, because fever is actually a form of body defense. By increasing the temperature, the development of bacteria and viruses in the body can be inhibited.
So that your child experienced is a natural thing, the temperature up and down because of the ability of the immune system is still not perfect, other than because of the disease process itself. Fever is localized only on the head and body is reasonable, because that part is the most important part of the baby's body because many important organs are turned over, so with the ability of the immune system now, increasing the temperature is more focused on these parts.
So far, the steps you have taken have been right to check with your doctor, and you only need to give him medication regularly as directed to help with recovery. In addition, warm compresses his forehead, keep away from sick people, dust, pollution and smoke, and keep persuading your child to eat food from other sources. If the condition does not improve even though the medication has started to run out, consult a pediatrician to be given further treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
