How to Prevent and Treat Tomato Flu?

 

What is the Prevention and Treatment of Tomato Flu?

The international medical journal "The Lancet" said that "tomato flu", a new type of hand, foot and mouth disease, was first detected in southern India. So far, 82 children have been infected, all under the age of 5.

 

Children are at increased risk of exposure to tomato flu because viral infections are common in this age group and can be spread through close contact. Young children are also susceptible to the virus by using diapers, touching dirty surfaces, and putting things directly in their mouths. Given the similarity to HFMD, outbreaks of tomato flu in children, if not controlled and prevented, can also spread among adults with serious consequences.

 

You should isolate for 5 to 7 days from the onset of symptoms to prevent the spread of infection to other children or adults. 

The best solution for prevention is to maintain proper hygiene and sanitize surrounding necessities and the environment, and prevent infected children from sharing toys, clothing, food, or other items with other uninfected children. 

With the gradual control of the epidemic in various places, the "return of the beast" that parents expect is imminent.

In the face of diseases that mainly infect children, many people may ask, what is tomato flu? Is it a disease transmitted by tomatoes? How can we prevent it in our daily life?

 

What is tomato flu?

"Tomato flu" or "tomato fever" is a rare viral disease. Because the patient will develop extremely painful red rashes and blisters, and slowly spread to the size of a tomato, which is filled with fluid, hence the name "tomato flu", which is essentially a variant of hand, foot and mouth disease.

What are the Symptoms of Tomato Flu?

Blisters occur on the palms, soles, mouth, lips, buttocks, elbows, etc., starting from light red patches and gradually forming fluid-filled blisters.

Other symptoms include high fever, nausea, diarrhea, dehydration, swollen joints and body aches.

 

How to Treat Tomato Flu?

There is currently no specific treatment for tomato flu, and the disease can only be treated symptomatically. 

If you are suspected of being sick, you should seek medical attention immediately, maintain proper hygiene, do not let the child catch the blisters, give the child more water, bathe the child with warm water, and let the child rest properly.

As a variant of hand, foot and mouth disease, "tomato flu", like other hand, foot and mouth disease, is a self-limiting disease, that is, without external intervention, the disease can disappear on its own after a certain stage of development

Most patients will recover within 7 to 10 days, but some infected individuals develop severe illness. 

It should be noted that after the patient's symptoms subside, the virus can still persist in the body for about 7 days, during which time other contacts may still be infected. Source: Figure Worm

 

How to prevent Tomato Flu?

Experts say the virus is "very contagious" and so far, there are no vaccines or specific medicines for it, so prevention is an effective way to avoid infection.
