Causes Of Singaporean Flu In Children 3 Years?
Tonight … I want to ask my 3-year-old child from symptoms like Singapore flu … even now 4 months ago I’ve been hit right now because … what is the cause … thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Singapore flu, or a disease also known as HFMD (Hand-foot-and-mouth disease) is a disease that often attacks children, although in some cases it can also affect adults. This disease is characterized by the appearance of watery nodules, mouth sores, hands, feet, elbows, buttocks, knees and groin folds. In addition to these symptoms, symptoms such as fever, sore throat, red rash, abdominal pain and cough can also appear.
Regarding your question, the disease caused by this virus does not provide special immunity to the sufferer after he is cured, which means that he could indeed get the same disease again in the future, both because of consuming contaminated food and drinks, accidentally inhaling saliva splashes, nasal or throat fluids, or putting contaminated objects in the mouth.
In addition, it is also possible that what he is experiencing is a different disease that at first glance can look the same, such as smallpox, measles, Kawasaki disease and Scarlet fever. For this reason, we recommend that you check your child with a pediatrician, so that you can do a history, physical examination and support needed to diagnose the possibility, and determine the appropriate treatment.
Meanwhile, for now and going forward, keep more in tune with bodily and environmental hygiene, keep your child away from sick people, meet your child's fluid and nutritional needs, and avoid giving drugs without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
