Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever is one of the most common medical symptoms, which is not a fever, but a medical condition that is caused by other underlying factors. Fever is an increase in body temperature above the normal body temperature limit which is more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. Fever that occurs for a prolonged period of more than 3 weeks with a treatment period of at least 1 week or consultation with a doctor at least 3 times and has not yet obtained a clear medical conclusion can be categorized as Fever of Unknown Origin (FUO) or fever without an obvious cause. In this case, it requires a complete evaluation covering in-depth medical interviews, direct physical examination and certain investigations or investigations that are relevant to the person's clinical condition.
Some possibilities include:
Parasitic infections, such as intestinal worms
X-ray examination, CT scan, etc. are supporting examinations that are used to confirm the diagnosis, each of which certainly has a medical indication to be performed. It would be better if you can consult with a pediatrician so that your child can get a direct examination, because in any case it requires a direct examination and the doctor who examines your child more directly who knows the conditions that occur
For a while:
Make sure your child's fluid intake is adequate, considering dehydration can also cause an increase in body temperature
Sleep and rest enough
Maintain a healthy and regular diet
Maintain personal and environmental hygiene
Maintain cleanliness of food and cutlery and drinking
So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
