The Possibility Of A Child Developing Pneumonia Without Showing Symptoms?
, my child has been X-rayed with pneumonia, but my child is not coughing and has a fever, it’s just that his weight is not normal. Information please
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically pneumonia or pulmonary infection is a disease that occurs acute, meaning that the symptoms caused by the general are clearly visible (there are fever, cough, shortness of breath) and these symptoms just happened and are still happening. Even if there is an abnormal weight in a child, weight generally appears to drop significantly within a few days (for example because the child does not want to eat or drink) and does not occur chronically (weight does not increase for months). Chest X-ray examination is actually just an additional examination that can not be used as the only diagnostic tool. To get a proper diagnosis of an illness, a history of disease and symptoms and physical examination must be carried out, and if necessary new investigations are carried out.
Therefore, you should bring your child and the X-ray results back to the pediatrician who asks for an examination. Pediatricians who will later conduct a comprehensive analysis to determine the diagnosis of your child's illness and also management according to the diagnosis.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
