My child has a 37.2 fever is that normal?

1 Answer:

Hello Nursyifa,

Thank you for the question.

New children and adults are said to have a fever (febrile) when their body temperature reaches more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. This fever may be many causes, ranging from viral infections, bacterial infections, infections of other microorganisms, exposure to excessive heat, hormonal disorders, malignancies, disorders of immunity, side effects of immunization, the influence of drugs, and so on. Handling that needs to be done to overcome the fever can also be different, depending on the cause and severity.

Your child's body temperature, which reaches 37.2 degrees Celsius, is more accurately referred to as subfebris. This condition, later it could develop into a fever, but it can also go down by itself. It's best if you don't panic about this. What needs to be done is:

 Check the child's body temperature regularly using a standardized thermometer every 3-6 hours Give the child more drink Give him also a variety of balanced nutritional value foods Give him clothes that warm and absorb his sweat Invite him to stay active as usual Do not just carelessly give children drugs, including heat-lowering drugs, as long as their body temperature is still less than 37.5 degrees Celsius. However, if this condition persists for a long time and makes your baby uncomfortable, do not hesitate to check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician for monitoring and handling further ...

I hope this helps.
