Causes And Treatment For Singapore Flu?
, is there any anti-viral medicine for the Singapore flu? So this is how my child after the Singapore flu has recovered and is not given antiviral medication. Well, my friend’s son was also affected recently and the doctor said he was given antiviral medication. So we had a debate too. He advised me to go to the doctor and ask for antiviral medication for my child.rnHe said that even though he had recovered, the virus was still in the child’s body. Please explain y. thank you
Hi Mildaamalia.. Thank you for the questions given.
Singapore flu or can be said as a disease of the mouth, feet, and hands is a disease caused by a viral infection. It is said to be a disease of the mouth, feet, and hands because the symptoms appear reddish spots such as thrush on the feet, hands, and mouth, can also appear on the elbows, buttocks, groin.
Basically, when the body is infected with a virus, a good immune system can fight the virus, so there is no specific treatment for foot, hand, and mouth disease. The doctor will give medicines to reduce the symptoms that appear, such as: paracetamol to reduce fever, allergy medicine to reduce the itching that appears. To speed up healing, doctors can give antivirals, but with adequate rest, adequate water intake, and medication according to symptoms, the child can recover.
This virus can survive in the body a few days to several weeks after the child recovers so that it can still infect other people. So what you can do with your child:
Eat a balanced nutritious diet If the child goes to school, it is better for the child to rest at home first. Sufficiently drink daily water. Teach children personal hygiene and maintain the cleanliness of cutlery, children's toys, and other items that can become agents of disease transmission.
