The 4-month-old Baby’s Fontanel Is Sunken Inside?
Hello, good afternoon. My baby is 4 months old, the jams are sunken into the u0026amp; do not want to drink milk, my baby happened to use milk powder. He rarely peed sometimes a lot sometimes a little bit of his children are also fussy but if he pinches it back again. Yesterday I just had a fever but I don’t have a fever anymore, is my baby dehydrated ?? Do I need to take you to the hospital ??
Hello, thanks for the question.
Dehydration is a condition in which the body experiences a lack of fluids, can be due to lack of intake or due to increased expenditure. Fluid discharge in children is most common due to diarrhea, vomiting, high heat, excessive sweating, weather factors, excessive physical activity or exercise, and so on. Therefore, if a child experiences signs of dehydration, it is best to find out the cause of dehydration so that treatment can be more appropriate because if the initial symptoms of dehydration are not handled properly, it can interfere with bodily functions. Signs and symptoms of dehydration that occur in infants and children can be:
Skin turgor returns slowly
Feeling thirsty until you don't want to drink
Mouth and dry skin.
Urine is darker in color and smells stronger.
Don't shed tears when crying,
Diapers stay dry after a few hours
Less active, fussy, and easily drowsy.
If your child experiences these complaints you should immediately visit a doctor, the doctor will conduct a direct examination on the patient and supporting examinations if needed, such as blood tests, feces, urine, and so forth. Handling will be adjusted to the conditions and causes of complaints. If dehydration occurs the doctor will usually do the rehydration by giving fluids, either through oral / mouth or through an IV. It is best to increase fluid intake, eat healthy and nutritious foods, and avoid foods that stimulate diarrhea.
Thus, hopefully useful.
