The Child Is Weak And Does Not Want To Eat After Recovering From A Fever?
Hello. I want to ask. 1 Weeks ago my 1 year old son coughed a cold. After that I brought it to the midwife in syrup. After 2 days my child had a fever up to 38.5. the day the fever went down. the child is limp until now and the cough is still low.

The child looks weak indicating the child is still in an unhealthy condition. It may be that recovery is taking place, but maybe the disease is still ongoing. The causes of weakness in maternal children can occur due to:
1. Dehydration or lack of body fluids. High body temperature can also cause dehydration.
2. Lack of body calorie intake caused by no appetite.
3. Diseases that are being experienced.
It is better to bring the child back in control with the doctor beforehand so that the doctor can evaluate the treatment that has been given. Even if necessary, the doctor will advise children to carry out investigations such as routine blood and routine urine. The aim is to ensure re-diagnosis of the child's disease.
Meanwhile, the mother makes the child warm and fresh food, like soup. Give children foods high in calories and high in protein. Take children for a walk in the morning to breathe fresh air. Make sure the house is clean from dust. Really pay attention to the child when playing, not to put dirty objects in his mouth. A year old child is in the oral phase, which likes to put what he gets in the mouth. This is one of the pathways that cause children to be infected with germs. And the main thing is to give ASI children as often as possible.
Thus hopefully useful.
