Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Cough, runny nose, and fever (increased body temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius) in children generally indicate an infection. This infection most often occurs in the respiratory tract, for example rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa), sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities), pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat), tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils), bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi), to pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma). Or, it could be that this infection originates from another organ system, but has prodromal symptoms resembling the flu.
The appearance of a reddish rash after the child has a cough, runny nose, and fever can occur due to the previous course of the disease, or it can also occur for other reasons. Some types of infection will indeed cause a red skin rash preceded by prodromal flu-like symptoms, for example:
Measles (measles) Dengue fever (dengue fever) Typhoid fever (typhoid) Scarlet fever Hand foot and mouth disease (Singapore flu), and so on. food or other substance allergies, insect bites, contact dermatitis, and so on.
A thorough physical examination is required to assess what is the cause of your child's current complaints. Therefore, you should check your child directly to the doctor and not give careless treatment. If necessary, the doctor can also suggest that your child undergo laboratory tests or allergy tests. That way, the right treatment can be done according to the cause of your child's complaints.
At this time, teach your child not to scratch or apply excessive pressure to the red rash that appears. Bathe him regularly 2 times a day then give him clothes that absorb sweat and are soft. Give children time to rest a lot, limit tiring play time. Also give him more to drink and eat healthy and nutritious food. Keep children away from exposure to substances that can trigger allergies.
Hope it helps ya..
