Has anyone ever had their kid diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease?

Asked by everval (126points) June 13th, 2009

My kid has been diagnosed with KD and I want to know if any kid had the same symptoms after the gamma globulin dosage. It’s been 8 days since he had it and he’s still having low fevers.

OK guys, in case you are not aware of this disease, it is real and serious, so no motorcycle jokes.

Sounds as though you might want to talk to your doctor again. Typically the fevers are gone in about 5 days or so, but sometimes they do go longer. However, you want to be certain vasculitis does not set in.

Ok, so I looked at this because I thought it was another bogus problem (because of Kawasaki) like Cellphone Elbow…but seeing this has nothing to do with that, I can’t really help.

Hope he gets better soon :(

Is that the same as Hand, Foot and Mouth? My son had that when he was 3; but that was 15 years ago, so they did not have treatment for viruses then.
