What should I do if my baby has a fever? Pay attention to emergencies in young children!

Question 1: My baby is one year and three months old. He had a fever of 38.7 degrees yesterday morning. He has no other symptoms and is in good spirits. What should I do? Dr. Luo Zhen’s answer: If your baby has a high fever for the first time, you need to pay attention to infant rash. Infant rash will usually have repeated high fever for three days, and then the body temperature will return to normal and a rash will appear. The rash will subside after two days. The baby has just had a fever for a day, so we can only treat it symptomatically and observe it. As long as the mental state is good and there are no other symptoms, there is generally no big problem. You can take Children\’s Chai Gui Antipyretic Granules and Children\’s Baotaikang Granules. Eat light and easy-to-digest food every day and drink plenty of water. When you have a high fever, you can take Motrin to reduce fever. If you follow the treatment described above and still have a fever after three days without any improvement, you can go to the hospital for a blood test to see if antibiotics are needed. Viral infections do not require antibiotics, only bacterial infections do. Question 2: My baby is more than seven months old. He has difficulty defecating recently and the poop is dry. What should I do? Dr. Yang Yafeng answered: It is difficult for a seven-month-old baby to have bowel movements. You can give the baby probiotics, such as Mommy\’s Aid, Serotonin, Saccharomyces boulardii, etc. to improve the intestinal flora and help defecation. Adding complementary foods, you can add carrot juice, fruits, vegetable purees, etc., which can keep your baby\’s intestines smooth. Also give your child some water. In addition, when you are fine or at night, you can massage the baby\’s abdomen in a clockwise direction and massage around the navel. Check to see if your belly is bloated. The abdominal wall is hard when it is tense. Wait for a while and then press it lightly. Question 3: My son is one year and five months old and has only eight teeth. Does he need calcium supplements? Dr. Cui Lixia answered: It is normal for a child to have eight teeth at one year and five months old, and it does not indicate calcium deficiency. You can check your blood routine to see if you are anemic and check your blood vitamin D level. Calcium deficiency in children is generally caused by a lack of vitamin D. If a child is deficient in calcium, it is recommended to supplement with vitamin D to promote calcium absorption.
