MIS-C In Children - Sakshi Post

MIS-C In Children: As a result of cases recorded in Odisha, the government has identified the symptoms of post-COVID-19 Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in children.

High temperatures, rashes, conjunctivitis or redness of the eyes, severe stomach discomfort, and poor perfusion are all symptoms.

According to the government, it is an immunologically mediated disease that can damage the heart, liver, and kidneys.

The symptoms of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome - Children (MIS-C) can manifest in many areas of the body.

We don't know what causes MIS-C just yet.

We do know, however, that many MIS-C children carried the virus that causes COVID-19 or had been exposed to someone who had COVID-19.

MIS-C is a severe, even fatal disease, although most children who have been identified with it have improved with medical treatment.

What to do if you suspect your kid is suffering from MIS-C

If your kid is exhibiting MIS-C symptoms, contact your child's doctor, nurse, or clinic straight away.

Any of the following signs and symptoms, as well as a fever:

  • Abdominal (gut) pain
  • Bloodshot eyes
  • Chest tightness/pain
  • Diarrhoea
  • Feeling extra tired
  • Headache
  • Low blood pressure
  • Neck pain
  • Rash
  • Vomiting

Keep in mind that not every child will have the same symptoms.
