Hello, good afternoon Aisyah.
Complaints of children refusing to eat, fussy, cold sweat, and fever can be caused by many possibilities, including:
Teething is experiencing an acute upper respiratory tract infection (cough, cold, flu, sore throat) is experiencing a chronic infection, such as Tuberculosis (TB) is experiencing an ear infection, is experiencing a gastrointestinal infection, such as diarrhea, constipation, typhus, etc. urinary tract infections etc.
To be able to determine the cause of the complaint your child is experiencing, direct examination is needed. What's more, the complaints you write down are not specific to a particular disease. Therefore, we recommend that you get your child checked by a pediatrician. The doctor will ask questions about your child's complaints, dig up a history of previous illnesses, perform a general physical examination, and additional examinations if needed. These additional examinations can be in the form of blood lab tests, X-rays, urine lab tests, etc. Considering that this complaint has been experienced for 1 week, it is better that you don't delay seeing the doctor.
While waiting for the doctor's appointment, here are some suggestions that you can try to do at home to help reduce the complaints experienced by your child:
Give a warm compress if the child has a fever again, or you can give an over-the-counter heat reliever, such as paracetamol, give your child enough drinks such as water and breast milk (or formula milk if you have started to give formula milk), still try to give your baby food ( complementary foods), try to give it in small portions but often
That's all, hope this helps ...
