Good evening, excuse me to ask..
Hi Chito, thanks for visiting HealthReplies.com.
Fever is a subjective complaint felt by a person, where the person will feel hot or feverish, but when measured with a thermometer the measurement results are not more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, if at the time of measurement with a thermometer more than 37.5 degrees Celsius, it can be called a fever. Fever can be felt by anyone who has decreased endurance. Complaints of chills that are felt for 4 days and improve with the administration of antipyretic drugs can be caused by several underlying conditions, such as:
The presence of digestive disorders, such as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), stomach ulcers
The presence of respiratory disorders, such as acute respiratory infections (ARI), acute pharyngitis, acute tonsillitis
Typhoid fever or typhoid
Urinary tract infection.
To find out the underlying cause of your complaint, you should immediately consult a doctor so that a physical examination can be carried out directly. In addition, the doctor will also carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests, urine tests, and endoscopy if needed to make a diagnosis. Meanwhile, here are some tips that you can do at home, such as:
Rest at least 8-9 hours per day
Drink 2-3 liters of water per day
Increase consumption of nutritious and nutritious food
Avoid consumption of fatty, spicy, fried foods, caffeine
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption
Compress with warm water or plain water
Take a fever reliever such as paracetamol.
Hope it is useful.
