Up And Down Fever In Infants Aged 11 Months Accompanied By Unweighted Weight?
Hello, my child is 11 months old at night when his body temperature rises. I’ve been hospitalized at the age of 9 months but he can’t find the exact cause of the fever he said has a virus but I don’t know what the virus is. Until now he hasn’t healed well. 7 degrees Celsius but if the armpit is measured the temperature is different. The temperature measurement in the armpit is always below 37.5. What should I do because my child has a weight so it does not increase. Now it is still 6.7 kg
How long has the child had a fever? Fever is a condition when body temperature has increased more than 37.5 degrees Celsius. To find out the temperature can be measured with a thermometer. When body temperature is measured with a thermometer, it is normal if there are slight differences in some parts of the body such as the forehead, armpits, mouth and rectum.
Fever itself is often caused by infection, but it can also be due to side effects of immunization, exposure to excessive heat, or because wearing clothes is too thick. For the infection itself can be caused by colds, sinusitis, otitis, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, typhus, dengue fever, and malaria. It is difficult to ascertain the cause of a fever without checking it directly.
For now you can try doing the following tips first, ok?
Let the child get enough rest Give the child more milk Make sure the child is fulfilled his fluid needs Give the child a balanced nutritious food Adjust the temperature of the room to make it more comfortable for the child Give the child a thinner, comfortable, and loose shirt Avoid giving the child a thick jacket or blanket Give the child medicine fever-lowering if necessary Warm compresses If the fever is more than 3 days, it would be better if you see your child directly to the doctor so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause, if necessary blood tests or urine tests can be done. If the cause of the fever is confirmed, your doctor can give your child more appropriate treatment.
Hope it helps you,
