Swollen Eyes When A Fever In Children Aged 3 Years?
my child is 3 years 6 months, now has a fever up to 39celcius, what I want to ask is why during a fever my child’s eye is swollen on the right and runny?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Conditions experienced by your child can occur due to various kinds of things, including are:
Disorders of the glands in the eyelids
Insect bite or sting
So it cannot be known specifically, including whether there really is a relationship between the condition with the fever that he is experiencing at this time. Our advice, you should check your child at a pediatrician so that he can immediately dig the history and physical examination needed to establish the diagnosis and determine treatment. This is important because the fever of 39 degrees Celsius is quite high and the cause must be sought immediately.
In the meantime, you may give over-the-counter heat-lowering medication by reading the directions listed, compressing the forehead and swollen eyes with warm compresses, making sure the water intake and nutrients are sufficient, and don't hesitate to be taken to the nearest emergency room if the temperature continues ride. So, hopefully answering your question.
