Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Dehydration in children can be caused by several factors, such as lack of fluid intake, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. Decreasing the amount of urine can also be a sign of dehydration, but of course it needs to be adjusted to the clinical condition of the child, and need to know the cause of the complaint it is necessary to do a history and direct physical examination.
Some signs of dehydration in children include:
When crying does not shed tears Eyes look sunken inward Shrinking fontanel Diapers stay dry for 12 hours Skin feels cold and dry Easily angry and lethargic Children become fussy and agitated Dry and sticky mouth Fatigue and dizziness Or the heavier can get decreased awareness.
In the meantime what you can do include:
Provide more fluid intake than usual, both breast milk, formula milk, or water Avoid the air is too hot or too cold If the child vomits, do not give drink in large quantities at once, but a little but often Maintain personal hygiene and the environment Maintain adequate nutrition for children If your complaint does not improve or you are worried you should check your child with a pediatrician to get further examination and treatment related to your child's condition
