Overcoming High Fever In Infants Aged 8 Months?

Hello Nuna, Thank you for the question.
Fever is the body's response when experiencing an infection, either due to viruses, bacteria, or parasites. Usually the symptoms of fever are accompanied by other symptoms depending on the location of the infection, such as coughing, runny nose, sore throat, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea / constipation, headache, joint and muscle pain, skin rashes, and others. Children are said to have a fever if their body temperature reaches above 37.2 degrees Celsius as measured by a thermometer in the armpit. Some of the causes of fever in children are flu, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, chicken pox, measles, dengue fever, typhus.
What do you give salmon for? Giving salmon does not help lower the body temperature of children, yes. To overcome fever in children, there are several independent treatments that you can do:
monitor the child's body temperature with a thermometer regularly do regular water compresses on the forehead, armpits, and groin to help relieve fever while maintaining food and drink intake. children wear loose and comfortable clothing for children. keep the child's room temperature comfortable if the body temperature reaches more than 38 degrees Celsius, you can give paracetamol in accordance with the instructions listed on the packaging of the drug If the child continues to have a high fever for more than 3 days, or is accompanied by shortness of breath, continued vomiting, difficulty eating and drinking, urinary frequency is reduced, please you immediately take your child to the pediatrician for further tests to determine the cause. Further treatment will be given by a doctor according to your child's condition. You are also advised to always maintain hand hygiene before caring for your child to prevent transmission of infections in children.
I hope this helps.
