5 THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN YOUR CHILD HAS FEVER

For parents, getting a fever is among the most alarming illnesses that can be experienced by their children. However, a fever is a basic response of the body's immune system against infections. Because it is a general response, there are many different types of diseases or viruses that cause it.

 

In order to properly treat the fever, it is important to understand what goes on in your child’s body when he has fever. 

1. The most basic characteristic of a fever is increased body temperature. This is the effect of the body's attempt to fight unwanted organisms that attack the body as increasing the body temperature creates a less sustainable environment for bacteria and viruses. 

2. Shivering and feeling cold are normal when someone has a fever. This is because shivering, or rapid muscle contractions, is a way for the body to increase its base temperature. There is a feeling of coldness that a person feels as the hypothalamus tells the body to set a higher base temperature. 

3. Sweating happens regularly when the body's temperature gets too high. The sweat helps cool the body as it evaporates taking away some of the excess heat. Too much sweating however means the body loses some of the essential hydration that supports the body's immune system. It is important for someone suffering from fever to drink lots of water to keep the body hydrated. 

4. During a fever, a person may feel physically weak, lethargic and sleepy. This is due to the body's response to the infection telling it to rest and conserve energy as the immune system fights off the infection. The natural immune response of the body can get a boost through medical interventions such as Paracetamol. And when it comes to speeding up the recovery from fever, nothing works faster on fever than the Paracetamol in Calpol®

5. A person with fever will also likely experience a loss of appetite, sore throat, cough, and colds. Because fever is just a symptom of many illnesses, it is important to take note of all the other symptoms in order to properly diagnose the real cause of the sickness. Usually, once the fever has subsided, all other symptoms will likewise disappear. 

When fever is gone, life takes its place. So remember to give your child Calpol® for Ginhawa na Maaasahan that he needs when he has fever.
