Hmm Firas dah demam since last Tuesday, high fever sbb at times his temperature shot up to almost 40 celcius. Kelmarin demam dah almost kebah, but suddenly yesterday he developed lots of rashes, from face spreading down to his neck, arm, chest, back, and abdomen. Campak ke allergic ni...konfius kitorang. Nursery kata dia mkn porridge budak lain, ade ikan bilis (sbb dia dah bosan dgn my porridge huhu). Well aku taknah kasik bilis all this while..was it the culprit?
Pagi ni bwk lagi jumpa paed, and paed kata ohhh this is 'roseola virus'. Very common among babies (tapi idlan taknah kena pon :p). It started with high fever that lasted for few days, followed by rashes. So now back in office i googled the net and found this...just for my further understanding :)
Roseola is a common disease of babies or young children, in which several days of very high fever are followed by a rash.
Roseola is an extraordinarily common infection, caused by a virus. About 90% of all children have been exposed to the virus, with about 33% actually demonstrating the syndrome of fever followed by rash.
The most common age for a child to contract roseola is between six and twelve months.
Roseola strikes suddenly, when a previously-well child spikes an impressively high fever. The most notable thing about this early phase of roseola is the absence of symptoms, other than the high fever. Although some children have a slightly reddened throat, or a slightly runny nose, most children have no symptoms whatsoever, other than the sudden development of high fever. This fever lasts for between three and five days. Somewhere around the fifth day, a rash begins on the body. The rash is usually composed of flat pink patches or spots, although there may be some raised patches as well. The rash usually starts on the chest, back, and abdomen, and then spreads out to the arms and neck. It may or may not reach the legs and face. The rash lasts for about three days, then fades.
Tadi time hantar firas ke nursery, si abang tgh practise games for his upcoming sports day. Riuh bangat dekat luar nursery ngan bebudak tu sumer menjerit2....tak sabar rasanyer nak attend sports day dia kali nih. Last yr i was in my confinement hence pruzz je yg teman idlan dekat padang. This time around i better be sure not to miss the chance...dan disebabkan itu maka kitorang kenalah cepat tukar digicam baru...nikon yg lama ni sgtla bosan, tade anti-shake, bateri bila dah charge pon still jadi zero, nyawa2 ikan gitu!
