Red Spots And Swelling On The Joints Of The Child’s Feet After Coming Home From Playing?
my son is 6 years old, my son has been playing in the afternoon, it’s still good, around the afternoon when he comes home from playing his feet have big bumps like he bites a lot of insects, I thought at first he got a caterpillar, or he was bitten by a mosquito, just took a shower, I gave eucalyptus oil and ointment and i drank water with green, the next day the bumps disappeared, changed to big red, on the 3rd day they turned blue and the joint on the right leg was swollen, the next day it moved again, it was swollen again on the left leg, the HBs moved to the ankle, both of them were swollen and that too with blue, now the swelling in the legs is gone but the red spots are always coming out, now they are in the right and left hands, there is no itching, and the child doesn’t have a fever or headache, just lethargic, just wants to sleep, the child doesn’t eat too it’s good if it’s not as much as usual, I checked with the midwife at first it said it was allergic, but the medicine has been hbs still not healed, checked for blood pressure, it says there is bacteria in the urinary tract, but so far there has been no progress, and it’s done which is 14 days, my question is, is my child sick???
What your child is experiencing can be caused by several possibilities such as:
Henoch Schonlein Purpura (HSP) Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) Hives
HSP is a disorder that causes inflammation and bleeding in small blood vessels in the skin, joints, intestines and kidneys. Usually can cause reddish patches on especially on the legs and buttocks. ITP is an autoimmune condition that causes the level of platelets in the blood to drop so that there is leakage of blood into the skin causing red blood spots. Hives is an allergic condition that can cause red bumps on the skin.
It's a good idea to take your child to your doctor, especially to a pediatrician. It is necessary to take a history and direct examination of your child to determine what is experienced. Without it, the doctor cannot determine your child's condition. Later therapy will be adjusted to what is experienced by your child.
I hope this helps.
