A Bit about Roseola Infantum...

Sunday, September 26, 2010

This post was supposed to be made last week but due to my 11th month old baby's condition I got no chance to make  a post about it, I really wanted to make a post about " Roseola Infantum" because just like others who used to experienced this kind of contagious illness of their babies will give them some information, ideas and probably some piece of mind when this happened. Being a mom has lot of responsibilities especially when you're having a baby to taken cared of, and when there is something happening in your kids health that you doesn't know it's kinda freakin' and scary although I already have 4 kids but it's my first time to encounter this "Roseola Infantum". I'm so bothered and afraid that it could be "Dengue" a very deadly disease bought by mosquito bites because the signs and symptoms of "Roseola Infantum" were almost the same as "Dengue".

What is "Roseola Infantum"?
          ( Tigdas Hangin in Filipino )Is a mild viral illness of sudden onset ans short duration that most commonly affect young children 6 - 24 months of age although young teens and adult may also be infected because it is a contagious illness.
           Roseola infantum  is primarily caused by a virus called Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) and less commonly in human Herpesvirus 7 (HHV-7), Roseola is spread from person to person and is not very contagious the signs and symptoms may vary depending on the age of the patient. " in my case my 11 month old baby has a low grade fever in the first day and in the 2nd day a sudden high fever and in the 3rd day pinkish spot and rashes rapidly developed start in the head to face downward until the whole body covered with rashes, the only thing that keeps me not so worried about is that my baby keeps playing despite of having a fever especially when the rashes appear the fever almost subside, I just give a paracetamol for his fever, I learned that this illness is self limited so it needs to run its course and there is no straightforward measures to prevent this condition but proper hygiene and healthy diet are necessary to prevent this illness... thanks to the internet I got this very helpful information I needed to have some piece of mind.
