The Child Vomits After Giving Fever Medicine Through The Anus?
I took the child to the doctor, when I checked the heat was 39.7, after I put the medicine from the anus, the heat went down … at that time the doctor asked if the child vomited, at that time he didn’t, but after I brought him home, he vomited several times when he coughed , are those normal signs? The medicine that was given concocted powders and paracetamol, was not told that the powdered medicine included cough medicine or not … he said after 2 days if the heat had not subsided, he was told to check the blood … please explain, thank you
Hello Mira, Thank you for the question.
Coughing is the body's response to irritation, foreign objects, or mucus in the respiratory tract. When a baby coughs, the pressure inside the chest cavity increases and also causes pressure on the stomach so that the baby can vomit after coughing. This condition is a normal thing to happen. Coughs and colds in infants accompanied by fever can be caused by flu, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia. In addition, sufferers may also experience other symptoms such as shortness of breath, look pale / blue, fussy, difficulty breastfeeding, or weakness. You can do the following suggestions:
give the medicine prescribed by the doctor as directed
continue to give breast milk or formula milk little by little
watch your child's food intake, give him foods that are soft and in small portions but more frequently if your child is still vomiting
monitor body temperature regularly with a thermometer
Apply compresses with plain water to your child's body to help reduce body temperature
wear thin, loose clothing
always keep your hands clean when preparing your child's milk and food
If the complaint of high fever still occurs in the next few days or is accompanied by shortness of breath, difficulty breastfeeding, and continues to vomit, please immediately return to check your child's condition to the doctor or the nearest health facility. The doctor needs to re-examine your child to determine the next treatment.
Hope this information is helpful.
