Hello Apriliani, Thank you for the question.
Fever is the body's response when experiencing an infection. Fever is a condition when body temperature reaches 38 C or more. In general, someone who has a fever will experience other symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea / constipation, headache, decreased appetite, skin rashes, pain when urinating, frequent urination, and others. Fever is not caused by fatigue and consumption of certain foods. Fever in your mother can be caused by respiratory infections, dengue fever, typhus, infections in the hemodialysis access area, urinary tract infections. If there are no other symptoms, at this time you can do an independent treatment first by monitoring your mother's body temperature with a thermometer and encourage your mother to take paracetamol according to the rules of use on the drug packaging if you have a fever. In addition, recommend also to get enough rest, multiply the consumption of nutritious foods, and consumption of water in accordance with doctor's advice. If the fever symptoms do not improve for 3 days or more especially if the fever is high (38 C or more), please immediately take your mother to the nearest internal medicine doctor to be examined immediately to ascertain the cause, the doctor may need to do blood tests, X-rays, or urine examination. Further treatment will be given by the doctor after ascertaining the cause.
Hopefully this information helps you.
