Related to complaints of fever and sore throat that a mother experiences, it should be supplemented with some information relating to how the pattern of fever is high, especially at night or all day, whether there is cough, whether there is phlegm out or not, whether there are other symptoms besides wrinkled tongue such as nausea, vomiting diarrhea or difficult bowel movements, whether complaints are aggravated by something, whether there was a previous history of a similar mother, whether there was a history of other illnesses, whether in the immediate environment there were similar complaints. Based on complaints that you submit, there is a possibility that the diagnosis is still widespread, some of which are related, i.e.
- Strep throat or upper respiratory tract
- Typhoid fever
- Dengue fever
Strep throat or upper respiratory tract is an inflammatory reaction that can be debated by bacteria or viruses or immunological processes. Symptoms experienced by patients are usually fever, pain when swallowing, coughs appear reddish in the throat. The best diagnostic diagnosis is sputum culture so that it can be seen what is the exact cause of the inflammation.
Typhoid fever (typhus) is an infection caused by bacteria. Symptoms experienced by patients are fever more than 38.5 degrees for more than 3 days and are usually accompanied by digestive symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, decreased appetite. The pattern of fever that occurs usually mainly in the afternoon until the evening. On examination sometimes found the tongue looks white called dirty tongue and sometimes enlargement of the liver or spleen.

Things that can be done if you have a fever and sore throat is a good diet that is to avoid foods that are too cold or hot, multiply the consumption of fluids, get enough rest. Eat a little but often. For convenience can be added to the administration of antiperetic drugs such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.
