Hi Ariyadi,

Fever is a condition of an increase in body temperature above normal (> 37.5 degrees celsius). Fever is not a disease but a symptom due to an underlying condition. Most fever in children is caused by inflammation or infection, so it is very possible that complaints experienced by your child are caused by it. In addition to inflammation and infection, fever can also be caused by the following conditions:

 Dehydration (lack of fluids) Medication side effects Impaired thyroid hormone function Overexposure to excessive heat, for example due to exposure to the sun If you are worried about getting medical treatment for exposure to COVID-19 then you can give a cold medicine that is sold freely to help resolve your child's complaints. Use medication as recommended, but you should continue to see your child's doctor if the fever persists or other complaints arise. If you are worried about going to the health facilities then you can go to a private practice doctor that is relatively not as busy as the public health facilities.

May be useful,
