Ass … Night. I want to ask, my child aged 6 years has 2 days of high fever, has been treated u0026amp; d.berries any medication is still hot again and every night always rungsing because of the heat … What is the cause huh? And what kind of action should be done again? .. Thank you … Bella
Wa alaikumsalam Bella, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Fever in children, especially after only two days and not accompanied by other symptoms, can mean many things, ranging from typhus, malaria, dengue fever, smallpox, measles, ARI and many others. To be sure it is very difficult, because a fever under 3 days will not show any changes in blood tests. Even in typhus, specific investigations appear only on days 5-6.
So indeed, what you can do for a while is to take the medicine as prescribed by your doctor, and be helped by warmly compressing your child's forehead. In addition, prevent your child from pollution, dust, cigarette smoke, and the sick, provide warm food and drinks such as chicken soup and warm tea, meet daily fluid needs, limit their activities, make sure the clothes are comfortable, have a thermometer available at home and check the child's body temperature You once every 6-8 hours.
If the body temperature does not go down, check your child on the 3-4 day of fever, and ask for a blood test if not recommended by the doctor. The handling that will be received later will depend on the results of the inspection. Or if you have just checked your child before a GP, this time you can go directly to a pediatrician. If the condition worsens or does not improve even though the medicine has run out, return to the same doctor for further control and action. So, hopefully answering your question.
