The 5-year-old baby has a fever for more than an hour without fever
Hello, doctor, my baby is 5 years old. He started to have a low fever last night. Today, he is quite good during the day and started to have a low fever at night. He has been physically warming up. Just now, the high fever reached 38.5. He went to the children’s antipyretic suppository. He hasn’t had a fever for an hour after finishing the suppository. What’s going on? Today, I still have a low fever and fart, and I didn’t drink less water. Before I had a fever, suppositories worked. Why didn’t they work this time? What should I do? Thank you
Hello, every time children get sick, they are different, so their sensitivity to drugs is also different. Now, after using the antipyretic suppository for one hour, they haven’t had a fever, so they can continue to physically cool their children. If the children don’t have a fever in half an hour, then give them a different antipyretic.
With antipyretic suppository, it takes a certain amount of time for the drug to be absorbed into the blood circulation, and it will not be antipyretic soon. Under normal circumstances, children will sweat before fever subsides, and their body temperature will soon drop to normal after sweating. If it is repeated fever, you can’t simply apply antipyretics, but also treat it according to other symptoms.
If the baby goes to bed after using the antipyretic suppository and is not uncomfortable, don’t wake up the baby. If he doesn’t sleep, use oral antipyretics, such as ibuprofen suspension, feed warm water, wipe hands and feet, and promote heat dissipation. If you have repeated fever, it is recommended to test blood routine to see what infection causes you.
