Pediatric clinics, the most frequently encountered parents with their babies, told me that “the child suddenly had a high fever!”, I usually ask, “Is there any symptoms?” If the parents thought and thought, and kept shaking their heads, or saying that “the spirit is good after the fever…”, “it seems to be a little soft…”, my heart probably knows what happened to the baby.
Baby usually between 6 months old and 2 years old. If there is a sudden high fever, there are no other special symptoms. After the fever, it seems that there is no illness. I usually tell my parents. “The baby may get a rose rash!”
Is it a terrible rose that will cause a high fever?
Rose rash is also known as acute rash and burnt rash. Because of the high fever, there will be a small red rash around the body. The rash on the body is like a rose and pink, so it is called a rose. rash. Rose rash is caused by a virus infection, the most common type 6 and 7 human herpesviruses.
Most of the rose rash is transmitted by droplets. It is a benign disease. In addition to the high fever of the baby, it is necessary to worry about causing dehydration. Rose rash has few complications or sequelae.
Cream rashes are mostly common in babies from 6 months to 2 years and a half months, generally concentrated in 6 to 15 months. But as small as 2 or 3 months, children up to 2 or 3 years old have the possibility of getting sick.
The baby is protected by the mother’s antibody within 6 months of birth, so it is less prone to illness, but as the baby’s age is more than 6 months, the body’s antibodies are reduced, the chance of the disease Just as it rises gradually.
Rose rash can occur all year round, and the incidence is highest in spring and autumn. The infection is transmitted through droplets. Herpes virus may be hidden in the saliva of parents because parents There are already human herpesvirus antibodies type 6, 7 so there are no uncomfortable symptoms.
In addition, because such viruses may lurk in the body for life after infection, they may also be transmitted to infants and young children via asymptomatic adults.
The virus enters the baby through the mouth, nose and conjunctival mucosa, causing a rose rash. Therefore, when parents should be in close contact with the baby, pay more attention to cleaning, strengthen hand washing, and avoid transmission to the baby.
The initial symptoms of rose rash are like a cold, but the main difference is that it is slightly different from the general cold. The baby will suddenly have a high fever of 39~40 degrees, and the body temperature will last for 3-5 days. Back to normal. Most children have diarrhea, and very few babies have mild cough and runny nose symptoms.
Although high fever, children may become sick when they have a high fever, but once they have a fever, their spirit and vitality are as lively as they are, and they are not affected.
After high fever or fever, starting from the face and body trunk to the back of the ear, neck, back of the eyes, abdomen and back and buttocks, a small part of the limbs will begin to appear A dense, small rash of rosy that is not densely divided into pieces.
The appearance of the rash means that the disease is about to come to an end. After that, the child will not have a fever again. The rash will disappear automatically within about 3 days, although the dense rash seems to be terrible, but the rash does not hurt. It does not itch and does not feel uncomfortable, so there is no need to use a topical ointment.
Rose rash will not have sequelae, but pay attention to the fever caused by fever.
Because rose rash will have a high fever, there are a small number of children There will be febrile seizures. It is characterized by sudden symmetry tics of the hands and feet, sometimes lasting up to 5 minutes.
Rose rash will heal naturally and is not dangerous. But pay more attention to your child’s mental activity, but be careful not to mistake other serious diseases for a rose rash. At this time, because the baby has a fever, the throat is red and swollen, resulting in decreased appetite, coupled with crying anxiety, it is easy to cause dehydration because of eating less, pay attention to fever and water.
