Childhood fevers and hay fever rash in children are often considered trivial by most parents, but this symptom is one symptom of a disease of the heart and blood vessels that are vulnerable to small children: Kawasaki disease. Kawasaki disease attacks the arteries and causes inflammation or inflammation of the blood vessel wall throughout the body. In further cases, the disease may propagate into the coronary artery blood vessels, the blood vessels that carry blood to the heart, and lead to further heart and blood vessel diseases. Not only that, this disease also attacks lymph nodes, skin, and mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and throat, so often referred to as mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome.
The Kawasaki hay fever rash disease generally affects children under the age of five, often in the range of one to two years of age. Symptoms similar to diseases that are considered ‘mild’ make this disease often late diagnosed. According to a child heart consultant most new patients are treated when they are already in an acute sub phase, where there is a heart disorder. This is very risky considering the late handling will be fatal for the child.
Experts do not know exactly what causes Kawasaki hay fever rash disease, there are still too many possible causes of cardiovascular disease in this child. Most likely the disease is caused by a virus, judging by the characteristics of the symptoms caused. However, since the disease is not contagious, it seems the virus is not the only cause of the disease. Some studies suggest that Kawasaki’s disease is probably caused by an abnormal reaction to a particular virus. Other studies also say that this disease is an autoimmune disorder, in which the immune system in a child’s body thinks that body tissues are pathogens so that the tissues are attacked.
