can be Affected by Kawasaki disease twice

Post by andrew liu » Tue Dec 25, 2018 12:05 am

I wanted to share my experience of Kawasaki disease, my nephew contracted Kawasaki disease in 2017, when I was taken to the hospital in the city, I was a doctor, said that it was just a normal fever, but the fever did not go away and finally my sister was not satisfied with the doctor's diagnosis so she took her to the hospital in singapore there the doctor immediately sentenced my nephew's symptoms to kawasaki disease, and finally treatment there finally began to improve and they returned to their home country but every few months had to go check up, but when the doctor said he was cured and do not need to routinely come to check up, and the doctor said that the disease was only one time, but after 5 months did not check up, my nephew had symptoms of Kawasaki disease again (October 2018), then was taken again to the hospital the doctor said he was kawasaki disease again

I want to ask, can Kawasaki disease relapse?
And have you ever found a child with Kawasaki disease more than twice?
