The Cause Of Fever In Children Aged 3 Years Accompanied By Swollen Glands In The Neck?
Hello, I want to ask my 3-year-old child, if during the day the child is active sometimes likes fever but in the morning healed, sometimes the fever lasted for 2 days, coincidentally in the area where my child has glands, is that one of the reasons my child likes to have a sudden fever?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Up and down fever in children can occur due to various things, such as:
Acute respiratory infections
And it could also be due to the imperfect body temperature regulation. This is normal, especially if the fever is not too long and there are no other accompanying symptoms such as vomiting, coughing, runny nose, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and so on. As for glands, actually everyone does have glands in their necks. It's just that not all appear as lumps. If it is a lump, then it should be checked.
But if you are in doubt, or actually there are other symptoms, it is better to check with your pediatrician for further examination related to the condition. The doctor will find out about his medical history, conduct a brief physical examination and may be supportive if necessary. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, continue to take care of your child's health by meeting the nutritional needs and fluids, keep away from sick people, dust, and cigarette smoke. So, hopefully answering your question.
