Autoimmune diseases consist of various types. Autoimmune diseases can occur to anyone. autoimmune diseases occur because the body's cells attack the organs / parts of the body itself, so that it has the potential to cause inflammation. One autoimmune disease can affect the muscles or is referred to as polymyositis. Polymyositis can cause prolonged pain in the muscles, and can potentially cause damage to muscle cells.
If your child has an autoimmune disease, then one treatment can use steroid drugs such as metyhlprednisolone. But it is not recommended that you take any medication or change medication carelessly, because autoimmune treatment does require a long time and compliance with taking good medication is recommended by the doctor. To determine the right therapy, of course, must be based on your child's physical condition.
