Are there other symptoms of Covid 19 that children may get, or can Covid 19 lead to other problems in children?
This isn’t common, but it can happen. There have been rare reports of children with Covid 19 developing inflammation throughout the body. This can lead to organ damage if it is not treated quickly. It’s been referred to as “pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome” or “multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children.” The symptoms can be similar to other conditions like “toxic shock syndrome” or “Kawasaki disease.” Doctors don’t yet know if the virus that causes Covid 19 also causes Kawasaki disease in some children.
If you notice a rash on your child, especially if they’ve got other symptoms, such fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, and feeling tired, you should contact your doctor right away.
