Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A history of complaints of fever up and down and has been going on since the previous Monday or has been going on for 4 days to this day is likely to be triggered by the inflammatory process that is being experienced. If your child is still breastfeeding and has already eaten, chances are your child's age is between 6 months to 24 months. Children at this age often experience complaints of fever that can occur one or several days and sometimes are not accompanied by prominent complaints. If your child's appetite decreases and the willingness to drink breast milk decreases, it may be triggered by a disturbance in the child's throat or digestive tract, so this needs to be evaluated and examined directly by a doctor to ascertain the cause.
Some of the conditions below often cause complaints of fever in children, such as:
1. strep throat
3. viral infections, such as dengue fever
4. digestive infections, usually accompanied by eating disorders and changes in the shape and habits of bowel movements
5. tooth growth, usually a fever does not last long, about 1-3 days
6. the child has fallen down, usually the fever is not too long, about 1 day
7. respiratory problems, such as lung infections
while complaints of cold feet and hands may be triggered by decreased appetite, thus decreasing the supply of energy to the body; in addition, because of a fever that has lasted several days or because of dehydration that may be experienced may also trigger complaints that the hands and feet feel cold.
Therefore, all this needs to be done directly by the family doctor, control back to the treating doctor or pediatrician. The doctor will do a physical examination and supporting examinations that are needed, such as blood tests. The results of the examination will be a reference for the doctor to find treatment and treatment to help restore your child's condition.
For now, you can try to get enough milk or fluids and you can try to get enough food by giving small amounts more often.
