Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever accompanied by a decrease in appetite can be caused by several factors. To find out the cause of the complaint, it is necessary to do a history and direct physical examination, and if necessary, do a supporting examination both laboratory and radiological examination, related to complaints and symptoms that occur in your child.
Fever is not a disease, but only a symptom that arises as a result of certain diseases, where the treatment given must be in accordance with the cause. Not infrequently complaints of fever can heal by itself without certain medications, such as fever due to colds or colds. Fever is generally associated with a viral infection or bacterial infection in the body, which can attack in any part of the body, ranging from digestion, breathing, urinary tract and others.
Heat-lowering drugs generally can not overcome the infection that occurs (if the fever is caused by infection), and only reduce the symptoms of fever for a short time for the duration of the drug's work and will return to fever after the duration of the drug's work ends.
for the time being you can do include:
Consume a lot of water, keeping the body hydrated especially when running a fever
Keep giving ASI
Create a food menu and food appearance to make it more attractive
When fever, do warm compresses on the forehead, neck and armpits to help lower body temperature
Sleep and rest enough
If the fever persists or you feel your child's condition worsening, you should check your child to a pediatrician to get a direct examination and get the right treatment for your child.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
