Treatment Of Fever In Children Who Frequently Recur?
Good night, my son is 7 years old boy. Want to ask, are there other antipyretics besides Paracetamol or Ibuprofen? Because all this time if my child has a fever / fever, then I give Sanmol or Proris, definitely appear bumps on the body, or face (allergic). And want to ask, for a good compress method that should use cold water, cool, warm right? The doctor’s answer really helped me. Thank you,
Fever is a condition that often arises in children where the cause is very diverse ranging from the body's immune system reaction to an infection in the body either caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other causes in various organs of the child such as the ears, airways, urinary tract or digestive tract , prolonged sun exposure, dehydration, post-immunization and other causes.
To overcome the fever alone, it requires several efforts such as giving children more fluids, giving children compresses of normal water or warm water to help reduce fever, avoid giving compresses with alcohol because it can be dangerous for children, try to keep children in a cool room, avoid using thick blankets on children, and the other main effort is to give fever relievers. If indeed the child has a reaction to the fever medication given, it is necessary to do further checks on the doctor to make sure the child has an allergy to the drug.
Sometimes the child may have an allergic reaction not to the active substance of the drug but on other components forming the drug for that check with the doctor where if you are allergic to the two main drugs to reduce fever the doctor will provide other fever-lowering drugs that are safe and in accordance with the dose through direct examination previous. Fever treatment itself can be given medication for symptoms that arise also drugs to overcome the cause. high fever itself can be at risk of causing seizures in children, for that if the child's fever is more than 39 degrees Celsius and does not go down with the efforts that have been made immediately take it to a health facility to get treatment.
