KD for the second time

Post by Jimena » Tue Jun 09, 2015 12:42 pm

I am from El Salvador and the disease is rarely known here, My daughther is 1 year old and was diagnosed on the 8th day with Kawasaki disease, we were lucky to have been diagnosed on time and she was able to receive the IVIG on time. But...... 15 days after her first treatment the fever returned! you can imagen our concern, inmediately we ran more test only to have the doctor conclude she had Kawasaki again! We returned yesterday from the hospital and I am very concerned that she got it twice, can there be a 3rd time? will she be ok now? we have so many questions

My 3 year old is 13 days post IVIG and she has a different rash starting on her legs. It is extremely worrisome. She has migranes now and vomits. This is the worse experience I have ever had with my daughter. From everything I have read, I have never seen a story of someone getting it a third time. What were your daughter's symptoms on round 2. I'm worried that we are heading that way!

Hi! the second time the symptoms were milder, she had the fever (102 and up) and had a very soft colored rash, the palms of her hands were very red. The Blood Test showed inflamation in her body.
Today she woke up with another fever! we are worried it is a third time.
