What Are The Characteristics Of Children Exposed To Measles / Gabagen Virus?
Afternoon, want to ask. This is my child, these days, red spots have appeared. Initially only a little. I thought it was just prickly heat … but it’s been 2 days even more evenly, so the whole body has spots. Is my child affected by the measles virus? But now he doesn’t have a fever … just a week ago he had diarrhea and vomited but it only lasted for one day and it didn’t coincide too. Because until now he is still active and always sweat a lot, day and night .. r n r nThank you doctor ..
Hi Ummi Latifah ... Thank you for the question.
Red spots in children can occur due to several things, for example:
Singapore flu (Hand, foot, mouth disease)
Measles is an infection caused by a virus characterized by the appearance of reddish spots. Reddish spots will appear first on the back of the ear, then the back of the neck, neck and finally a rash on the entire body. Before the rash appears, it will begin with signs of flu (coughing, runny nose), small white patches in the mouth and throat, fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and weakness.
To ensure the cause of reddish spots on your child's body it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor. You can have your child checked by a pediatrician. Apart from that what you can do is:
Make sure the child gets good nutrition, keep giving milk or milk to children
Keep skin clean
Note whether a child is allergic to something such as lotions, powder, or soap used. If there is an allergy, stop using the ingredients
Wear loose clothing, absorb sweat
