I was on Call One Fateful Night, at the hospital 🏥.
A child was rushed in for an urgent Abdominal USS from EPU(Emergency Paediatric Unit) at exactly 1:00am.
And my jaw dropped.
He looked as if he had been dipped in a drum of hot water.
His body was a mass of blisters and peeling skin.
The lining of the mouth, nose and genitals were not spared. Everywhere was peeling.
The eyes were red and oozing fluid.
What was happening❓
He had Steven Johnson’s Syndrome (SJS).
This ailment with the fancy name is a very dangerous ailment that can kill.
How did this child get SJS❓ Village people❓
He had developed a rash and the mother gave him Seven Keys “❌ to bring out the rash.”
The Seven Keys herbal mixture triggered Steven Johnson Syndrome.
Two other kids had died that year from complications that followed the use of Seven Keys.
This brings us to measles.
Measles is a highly contagious, serious disease caused by a virus.
Approximately 110,000 people died from measles in 2017 – mostly children under the age of 5 years, despite the availability of a safe and effective vaccine.
It is spread by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact or direct contact with an infected person.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
The first sign of measles is usually a high fever, which begins about 10 to 12 days after exposure to the virus, and lasts 4 to 7 days.
A runny nose, a cough, red and watery eyes, and small white spots inside the cheeks can develop in the initial stage.
After several days, a rash starts, usually on the face and upper neck.
Over about 3 days, the rash spreads, eventually reaching the hands and feet.
The rash lasts for 5 to 6 days, and then fades.
The most serious complications include:
Encephalitis (an infection that causes brain swelling)
Severe diarrhoea and related dehydration
Severe respiratory infections such as pneumonia
Take a child with a rash to the hospital. ✔
Do not give Seven Keys. ❌
I repeat; DO NOT GIVE SEVEN KEYS. ❌
Ensure your child completes the routine immunization.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THE RASH IS MEASLES❓
