Singapore Flu In Children Aged 10 Years?
Afternoon … I read an article about Singapore flu. It says that the disease attacks children under the age of 10. My child was detected as having the Singapore flu, and even he was treated for 2 days. Symptoms that arise are like Singapore’s flu, it’s just that red spots on the palms and feet are not watery. To this day his condition is still feverish up and down, dizzy, even to the chills. Is it true that the Singapore flu or are there other symptoms of the disease? Usually after a day the situation will recover? Thank you in advance.
Good afternoon Chicie, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Singapore Flu or also called Hand, Your Foot Mouth Disease is a disease caused by a viral infection that belongs to the Interovirus group.
This disease is more often attacked children less than 5 years, but can still attack children aged over 5 years, even can also attack adults.
If indeed your child has been declared affected by this disease by a doctor on the basis of complaints, physical condition and also the results of other examinations that support, then it is true that your child has the disease and it is recommended to follow all the doctor's recommendations during treatment at the hospital.
This disease itself will generally experience improvement in 7-10 days, depending on their respective conditions.
I hope this helps.
