The Cause Of Infants Aged 3 Months Diarrhea Accompanied By Fever?
My child is 3.5 months old. Exclusive Asi. Last Tuesday the vaccine for 2 had a fever a day. Friday is chapter 5x but few and not useless. Saturday to Monday this has taken a little bit, a day 4 / 5x. My baby is still strong, only it’s more fussy. The situation of the eyes and fontanel is not concave, the stomach is also still springy. My baby starts to put his hands in his mouth and it is often difficult to control his cleanliness even after being wiped. I went to the pediatrician given dehidrolyte and probiocide. It’s just that I’m not comfortable because the doctor isn’t informative enough. I am confused whether I should dehydrolyte because my baby is not dehydrated. And I read Probiokid for the age of 6 months dissolved in plain water.
Good evening Theodorus Danang, thank you for the question.
I help answer in sequence yes.
Dehydrolyte is not just a substitute for fluids, but also as ORS liquid containing various electrolytes as a substitute for electrolytes that the body has lost due to diarrhea. Indeed, the most feared complication for children when they have diarrhea is dehydration because it is the fastest and most easily occur, but also note that lack or disruption of electrolyte levels in the body when diarrhea can also be fatal if not prevented from the beginning so that it doesn't happen. So, even if your child is deemed not dehydrated, ORS may still be given according to the advice of the doctor who treats your child. But still pay attention to how to store well in accordance with that stated on the package. Regarding probiokids, this drug is actually a food supplement that contains probiotics or commonly referred to as 'good bacteria' which is expected to help reduce the symptoms of diarrhea that is being experienced by your child. Regarding the method of administration, you should follow the recommendations recommended by the doctor because the doctor's recommendations are made on the basis of certain considerations, depending also on the condition of your child. If the prescribing doctor does not give specific instructions on how to give the probitals, you should ask again, or if you cannot ask again, then the method of administration listed on the packaging may be used as a reference. In addition, at home it is recommended that you continue to ensure that your child's condition is always sufficiently fluid or not dehydrated, be sure to take medication from the doctor as directed, keep giving milk or milk according to the needs of your child's age, pay attention to the following: CHAPTER bleeding, frequency increases, fever occurs, vomiting continuously, the child looks weak and does not want to drink, or seizures, if any of these symptoms occur immediately take your child to the emergency room for further treatment. I hope this helps.
