Fever is a condition where the body temperature is more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. This 10-day fever can be caused by:
Typhus or Salmonellosis is caused by the bacteria Salmonella typhi. Symptoms include fever, abdominal pain, difficulty defecating or sometimes diarrhea. Sufferers feel their body temperature slowly increasing. Sometimes patients are found with whitish spots on the tongue. Leptospirosis is caused by the leptospira bacteria. Typical symptoms are fever accompanied by pain in the calves. Patients need to be asked about their previous travel history to floods, stagnant water, or rice fields. Malaria is caused by the plasmodium malaria parasite. Typical symptoms are fever, chills and headache. The patient has a history of 3 months before visiting an area where there are many sufferers with malaria. Acute HIV infection. Initial infection due to this virus will cause fever symptoms. HIV infection in the advanced phase will show symptoms of thrush in the oral cavity accompanied by whitish patches. Diphtheria. Typical symptoms appear in children. In adults diphtheria rarely shows significant symptoms. In diphtheria children there is sore throat, hoarseness, fever, and there is a white spot in the throat. It is better if your sister has been checked by an Internal Medicine Specialist to get a more complete examination to find out the exact cause of her fever.
The suggestions that I can give:
Consume more water. Do not eat red and dark foods such as dragon fruit, watermelon, papaya, chocolate, and coffee. The goal is that if there is bleeding in the digestive tract can be detected immediately. Take paracetamol if you have a fever according to the recommended dose. Warm compress This is my explanation, hopefully useful.
