What Causes Heat Fluctuation In 3 Days And Swollen Upper Eye Bags In Children Aged 3 Years?
my child is 3 years old, but it’s been 3 days the heat continues to rise and the upper eye bags don’t flatten. I am confused what my child is actually sick with. Because I already checked out and said that tomorrow I have to have a blood test and a urine test.
Hello Pithaloka, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Fever can be caused by various causes. The most common cause is infection. The infection itself can be caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites, and can occur in any organ, for example in the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, ear, skin, urinary tract, or not in specific organs, for example in dengue fever, rubella , mononucleosis, CMV, etc. Other causes of fever besides infection include:
other inflammatory conditions
drug side effects
To know clearly the cause of fever, it should be described more clearly any symptoms experienced by children other than fever, for example whether there is a cold cough, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, discharge from the ear, or other symptoms that bother the child.
I also want to confirm in advance what you mean by a faint eye. Do you mean bruising or bruising? Or do you mean that the eyelid is swollen?
Bruised or bruised eyelids can be caused by blunt force bumps in the eye, severe head injuries that cause injury / fractures to the skull base bone, injuries or fractures on the facial bones. While swelling on the eyelids are also various reasons, including:
bintitan / hordeolum
periorbital or orbital cellulitis
Fever experienced by your child can be associated with swelling in the eyes or not. It should also be explained further whether there are other symptoms in the eye, such as red, watery eyes, vision problems, etc.
The exact cause of fever and eye disorders in your child can only be ascertained by direct examination (and additional examinations), so it is better for you to ask directly with your pediatrician to examine your child directly.
For now, there are several things you can do:
Give more drink to your child
Give food every time the child wants to eat
Give a fever-lowering medication if the child's fever is high enough or the child is disturbed because of the fever
Let the child sleep and rest more
Return to your doctor to do a laboratory examination so you can clearly know the cause of your child's fever
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
