How To Prevent Singapore Flu So It Doesn’t Come Back?
My child is 2 years old. It’s been 1 week a rash appeared like blisters appeared in the mouth, neck and feet area. 2 days ago, said the pediatrician, my child had the Singapore virus. And given racik ointment and lactacyd but until now the rash is still increasing. How do you deal with the rash so that it doesn’t appear again and are there any special signs when the virus is gone?
Singapore flu is often also known as Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease or Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease, because this disease is manifested by a rash that is specifically found in the areas of the hands, feet and around the mouth. This disease is caused by a viral infection of the Enterovirus class which is transmitted through saliva splashes when the patient sneezes, sharing eating utensils, or touching contaminated objects and entering into the mouth / nose.
Because this disease is caused by a viral infection, actually no special treatment such as antivirals is needed. Diseases caused by viral infections are healed because the body's defense system will eliminate the virus. Immune conditions can be increased by good nutritional intake, adequate fluid consumption and good rest. When the virus is gone and the infection no longer continues, the rash will dry out and won't get any more. We recommend that you check your child directly to the doctor for several times for control, until the disease is completely cured. Here we attach an article about the Singapore flu. May be useful.
