KD symptom on and off

Post by eveshih » Sun Aug 17, 2014 8:58 pm

Hi. Has anyone had experience with kd symptoms appearing and then disappearing ... and then back again? My daughter started her neck pains and fever last wednesday (aug 13). The initial diagnosis of doc was some virus so she was given antibiotics because her fever was quite high. By saturday all KD symptoms where there.. fever, rash on hands and feet, bloodshot eyes and watery and the strawberry tongue. She was admitted right away by doc and referred to pedia cardiologist. But by sunday morning, d rashes were "disappearing" ... by sunday 3pm.. its back again.. with the watery eyes. Now its monday morning... rashes are almost like gone... the only kd symptom left are d strawberry tongue and reddish eyes (not watery)... my guess the rash will be back again by afternoon. Fever is there all throughout... controlled becoz she gets her paracetamol. The doctor has given her aspirin but not the IV treatment yet... he wants another blood test and wait till 7th day from start of fever (which is tomorrow).

Has anyone had the same experience or know of a similar case? Is it still ok to wait until the 7th or 8th day for the IV treatment?
