Good morning, my 16-month-old child has 2 days of fever but at noon if the fever subsides then I just see if the crown of the crown is rising, why is that? Then is it dangerous? R nThank you
Fever in children aged 16 months can be caused due to various causes. Have you measured your child's body temperature with a thermometer? If only touching the child's body parts is not accurate to determine fever or not.
At the age of 16 months accompanied by a crown of crown / head bulging accompanied by fever may be caused by an infection in the brain accompanied by increased intracranial pressure. Brain infections (encephalitis) can occur in children, but brain infections can cause your child to have a high fever, and are usually accompanied by vomiting, and the child is unconscious. Encephalitis is a dangerous thing.
but other than that, your child's condition can also be caused by other causes such as:
trauma / bleeding in the head
meningitis / inflammation of the lining of the brain
Therefore, if your child's crown is very prominent along with fever, then immediately check your child directly to the pediatrician, so the doctor can examine your child's condition further. Give enough drink to your child, avoid pressing / massaging your child's head.
