Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Fever is a form of the body's physiological response to disease. To be able to know the diagnosis of the disease that causes the fever, the doctor needs to evaluate the history of the disease through history taking. Therefore, we need to ask a few questions regarding your complaint. In addition to sore throat and lower abdominal pain, are there other symptoms that you feel, for example: coughing, runny nose, tightness, red spots on the skin, painful or red urine, etc.? Is there an increase in the incidence of communicable diseases in the area where you live / work, for example: dengue fever? Do you live in an area where a lot of certain diseases occur, for example: malaria?
In general, the most common causes of fever lasting <2 weeks (acute fever) include:
Systemic infections, for example: viral infections, malaria, dengue fever, leptospirosis, typhoid fever Focused organ infections, for example: upper respiratory tract infections, pneumonia (lung infection), urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections In connection with various possible causes of fever, anamnesis is needed and physical examination by a doctor to find out the cause of the disease.
As a recommendation for early treatment of fever at home, you are advised to drink plenty of water up to at least 8 glasses a day, consume balanced nutritious food regularly, and adequate rest. You can use a heat reliever to help relieve fever, for example: paracetamol, with doses following the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
If the fever does not improve within three days of using paracetamol and adequate rest, you are advised to consult a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. If there are indications for a supporting examination, the examining doctor may suggest additional examinations such as a blood check. Don't delay seeing a doctor if you have a fever accompanied by bleeding gums, nosebleeds, vomiting blood, defecating with black stool / fresh red blood, or red urine.
