Singapore Flu Treatment For Children Aged 1 Year?
Ass ,, I want to ask how to cure singapore flu in children aged 15 months …? Thank you
Hello Dwi Anisa,
Singapore flu or other names are hand, foot and mouth disease (HMFD) is an enterovirus virus infection that can attack all ages where children are more common. The symptoms caused are fever accompanied by spots on the feet, hands, mouth and canker sores that can arise or nodules filled with water, the child can become more fussy, rash, and the child loses appetite.
Singapore flu itself is transmitted through saliva splashes, touching certain objects and consuming food or drinks that are contaminated with viruses. The treatment itself is only to overcome the symptoms that arise such as giving fever-lowering medication if the child has a fever, giving the child more fluids, making sure the child is getting enough rest, giving the child food that is easy to consume, applying anti-itch cream to the skin rash, and other efforts to help the healing process . Strive to wash your hands before and after contact with children when feeding, changing diapers or other activities. Strive for children to maintain personal hygiene because Singapore flu can be transmitted especially to children in the surrounding environment.
Singapore flu itself can be cured without special treatment but if there is worsening in children such as high fever, children develop signs of dehydration, secondary infections arise in child rashes, seizures or fever does not subside more than 3 days it is necessary to immediately get treatment at the nearest health facility.
