The Cause Of Fever Up And Down Accompanied By Frequent Bowel Movements And Red Rashes On The Body Of Infants Aged 10 Months
Hello, my baby is 10 months old. Since Saturday yesterday had a high fever of 38 degrees but up and down. Then from Monday began diarrhea chapter more often 3 times a day than usual only 1 time a day. Wednesday afternoon a rash of red spots appeared all over his body but his body temperature had dropped to normal. Is this measles? While the age of 9 months has been immunized against measles. Now measles is still appearing and diarrhea is still repeated 3 times a day with a drastic decrease in appetite and often cry screaming without cause.

Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of rashes in the form of spots on the skin can occur due to several conditions. In some conditions can be accompanied by fever and diarrhea. Some things that caused the complaint include:
Chickenpox / Varicella zooster Measles Hand, foot, and mouth disease Scarlet Impetigo Allergy Fever To find out the exact cause the doctor must examine the skin directly with the rash, then the doctor will perform additional additional tests that support the possibility of certainty. That way the treatment will also be more precise and directed.
For now, some things you can do are:
Give children extra food according to their age Give enough drink to avoid dehydration Don't scratch the rash Keep your child clean signs of infection in the form of pain in the rash and discharge yellow / pus immediately to a pediatrician so that the child gets a complete examination and further treatment. With the current outbreak of COVID-19 be careful if you really have to leave the house, avoid using public transportation.
So, hopefully useful.
