Fever in children
Hi, I'm Doctor Bueno and this is Medicina Clara, your health channel on YouTube.
In Medicina Clara we will explain you with easy and clear words
the different aspects of medicine that you, as a patient, will need to know
Today, we are going to talk about several basic concepts about fever in children
We all know that we are worried to those of us who are parents when our the son has a prolonged fever,
Although we know in most cases, corresponds to common diseases that does not need great treatments
or large follow-ups by the doctors
What happens to our son when he havs a fever?
One, they are more muted
two, they are more lethargic
three, they requires more sleep, but it's not a continuous dream
Four, they lose the desire to eat
Five, are with a process of mucus, cough, do not feel well
more tearful
even more absent
Everything we are saying is normal and usual when children have a fever
What we can do as parents to correctly treat our children's fever?
the first of all is to follow the guidelines given to our pediatrician
the fever will correspond as we have told a sore throat,
a problem of mucus, an otitis and only in some cases more serious diseases
but you must follow the guidelines that our doctor has given us
First, the medicine to treat fever
What are they going to tell us, what are they going to prescribe to our kids?
Answer is: usually paracetamol or ibuprofen
in some cases they can give us a combination therapy, that is, paracetamol in some takes,
with ibuprofen in the others
Very important is that it fits well to the weight of your child
that you can find in all the prospects, although your doctor will tell you
how many milliliters, or how drops can fall you have to supply
and two, that you do according to the hours that they marked you
that because the treatment of all these medicines
what they are going to do is keep the fever
in a line, it will keep it within normal limits so that your child is comfortable
other things we can do, as a parents, when our children with the shivering,
is to help this fever gradually diminish
If the fever is very high, we can give the child a bath with warm and fresh water
sin tener que ser agua helada, solo agua confortable
This helps to lower the fever
Also, we can use a little towel with cold water,
it does not need to be an eau de cologne, or alcohol,
simply with these small towels moistened with cold water, they will help
the medicine to have its effect and the fever progressively diminish
but, what happens if in spite of giving you the medication,
put the child in the bathtub with fresh water,
put the child fresh water cloths..
…the fever continues to rise
We are already in 39º CG, 102,2º FG, and we have done all this
goes to 40º (104ºFC)
the child complains more and cries, feeling more dejected, in this point,
If the child has more than 40º (104 FG) or he passes it, we have to go to hospital emergencies
in this case the fever may be a sign of some disease something more serious
or that the common catarrhal process that his son was suffering has become complicated
do not try to solve it yourself, go to an emergency service and they will tell you what you have to do
and this has been clear medicine with Doctor Bueno
