Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all it must be known in advance, how long has your child had the fever? Fever can be caused by a variety of possibilities. The most common cause is infection. If your child's fever is accompanied by diarrhea, then the possible cause of the fever is an infection of the digestive tract. Gastrointestinal infections can be caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, or fungi. Other possible causes of recurrent fever are autoimmune diseases, other diseases that cause inflammation, drug side effects, thyroid disorders, adrenal hormone disorders, certain malignancies / cancers, etc.
If indeed diarrhea and fever have occurred more than 7 days and do not improve or continue to recur, you should immediately bring your child to the pediatrician back for further examination. In general, pediatricians will recommend a faecal examination to find the cause of diarrhea that occurs repeatedly.
For now, there are several things you can do:
Maintain the cleanliness of the food your child eats
Make sure you always wash your hands when preparing food for children
Make sure you also wash your child's hands before eating
If your child has diarrhea, you must make sure your child drinks more fluids. You can give milk, soup, coconut water, electrolyte liquid, fruit juice, or other liquids that the child wants to drink.
If your child has a fever and looks uncomfortable with the fever, you can give fever-lowering drugs such as paracetamol for children. Make sure you give the right dosage for your child.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
