Doctors and scientists are trying to get to the bottom of it. It is not known why it is targeting only a few children.
Dr. Sean O’Leary of Children’s Hospital Colorado said that if the child looks ill, you should see a doctor.
Some patients have been brought in very serious conditions with low blood pressure and high fever. There are some who have coronary artery problems.
Toxic shock syndrome symptoms in patients
Symptoms such as toxic shock syndrome have been observed in some patients. They complain of stomachache, vomiting, and diarrhea. They have severe burning feelings in their body and chest.
Immunoglobin is being given to the patients which help in reducing the irritation in the immune system. They are also being given steroid and cytokine blockers. O’Leary said that the disease started in Europe and there are signs that most children will recover from it.
But according to a report published in The Lancet, a 14-year-old teenager has died due to the disease. In France, Italy and Spain patients of this disease have also been reported.
