Hi Lord Handaru. Singapore Flu or in the medical world is known as hand, foot and mouth disease (hand-foot-and mouth disease) which is a disease caused by a virus called Coxsakie which comes from the enterovirus group. As a result of this infection, symptoms of fever appear, which can be accompanied by sore throat, weakness, decreased appetite and then sores or painful red spots in the mouth, hands and feet may appear. This condition is highly contagious where transmission is through wound fluids on the skin, the presence of airborne droplets when sneezing, saliva, feces.
Self-handling is more directed towards improving the body's immune system to fight the virus and treating symptoms. To relieve fever and reduce pain, paracetamol or ibuprofen can be used. Ibuprofen itself is usually taken every 6-8 hours. However, if your fever hasn't improved, it's a good idea to consult your doctor again for more information. Take care of your child's condition by consuming a balanced nutritional diet, increasing the consumption of water, and getting enough rest. If symptoms persist and do not improve, consult a doctor immediately. Here's about the Singapore flu. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
