The Cause Of Chills Is Fever Accompanied By Pain In The Legs?
My child is a toddler girl aged 4 years and 8 months, weighs 17 kg, has been feverish for more than 3 days. The worst fever usually occurs at dawn at 2am. Shivering followed by a high fever that only falls after 1 to 2 hours of panadol or proris 5ml along with a prescription antibiotic from the doctor initially thiamycin and then after replacing biothicol and cefexime @ 5ml, also concocted an allergy reliever. My son was on the previous 3 days when he had no fever. But on this day, this child does not want to walk, he said, his leg hurts. What might be the reason?

High fever, chills, accompanied by pain in the legs as your child is most likely caused by infection. The cause of this infection can vary, including viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms. Some examples of infections that often cause this complaint are:
Dengue fever (dengue fever) Malaria Chikungunya Typhoid fever (typhus) Urinary tract infections Influenza, etc. Knowing the type and location of this infection doctors can do with in-depth interviews, accompanied by physical examination or also supporting tests, such as laboratory tests, x-rays, ultrasound, etc. etc. Therefore, if your child's complaint has been going on for 3 days or more, and does not improve with the consumption of drugs from a doctor, we recommend that you check it back to the doctor or pediatrician to be given further treatment. The examination needs to be done faster if you notice the following danger signs for your child:
Seizures Skin rashes, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, or other signs of bleeding Vomiting or massive diarrhea Stiff neck, etc. In the meantime, you can first give the medicine your doctor prescribed to your child before. Expand to give your child drink and eat nutritiously so that his stamina recovers. If the leg feels painful, you can help reduce it by using warm water compresses, not massage or over-massage. Let your child rest more, reduce the tiring play activities first. To help reduce the fever, in addition to taking medication from a doctor, you can also compress the child's neck, armpits, or groin with warm water while giving the child comfortable, warm clothes, and absorbs sweat.
