Kawasaki disease is a rare condition that mainly affects children under the age of five. I recently came across @freyas_story, her parents are trying to raise awareness as the sooner it’s caught the better the outcome.
The characteristic symptoms are a high temperature that lasts for more than 5 days, with
- a rash - swollen glands in the neck - dry, cracked lips - red fingers or toes - red eyes
It is important to know that these symptoms don’t always appear at once and sometimes not at all! So if your child has a fever for 5 or more days and 3 or more of these symptoms, ask your GP to consider Kawasaki Disease
