TODDLER SUFFERING WITH KAWASAKI AFTER FEVER
Gemma Brown’s two-year -old son is suspected of having the ‘inflammatory syndrome’ linked to Covid – , the Mail reports.
Doctors were initially baffled by the boy’s symptoms after the tot developed a fever and rash across his body.
But a senior consultant eventually diagnosed the boy with the rare Kawasaki disease, a form of toxic shock syndrome which causes the body’s immune system to attack its own organs.
Gemma told Mail Online: “I asked for him to be tested, as I had a gut feeling that there was a connection between COVID – and Kawasaki.
“Both attack your immune system.” and the whole family had been poorly with Covid symptoms before he fell ill.
“I was adamant that there was a link and was begging for a test, but they just told me that there was no need to test the under-fives. “
The brave lad was given an immunoglobin transfusion and was in hospital for five days.
