Fever For 6 Days Accompanied By Rashes In Children Aged 7 Years?
My child is 7 years old. Now I have a fuss. My son’s initial phase of fever is 2 days but the rash has not come out. fever for 6 days and it’s not normal yet, is this normal?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Crinkle pain, or more commonly known as measles, is a disease characterized by the appearance of reddish rashes all over the body due to a viral infection. This disease is included in the category of infectious diseases and can cause serious complications, for this reason measles immunization is included in the category of immunization that must be owned by children.
Regarding your question, the course of the disease, measles symptoms generally arise for 3-5 days, and then disappear gradually. In most cases, those who suffer from measles usually recover within 7-10 days. So in the case of your child, because it is not until 7-10 days, there are still many possibilities of the condition that your child is experiencing is a normal process of disease.
However, if the condition is now not checked by a doctor, it is better to check with a pediatrician. This is important because there are several other disease conditions that may be at a glance similar to measles, such as Singapore flu, Kawasaki disease, Scarlet fever and so on. By going directly to a pediatrician, misunderstandings can be avoided and the treatment your child receives will be more appropriate.
Meanwhile, you can give a warm compress to your child's forehead, give warm drink mixed with lemon or honey, make sure your child consumes lots of water, bathe in warm water, and keep away from sick people, dust, cigarettes and pollution. So, hopefully answering your question.
