Comment from: ugnayan, 7-12 Male (Caregiver) Published: July 19

My son, who is now 13, had Kawasaki disease at around 7 years old. He was hospitalized for 15 days and had IV therapy, aspirin dosing, EKGs, and regular platelet drawings for 6 to 8 weeks as follow-up. He was released with an EKGs follow-up for 2 years and with a normal prognosis. He has always been very healthy, He studies and lives a normal lifestyle.

My daughter started with rash and peeling of the skin on her hands & feet. She then had muscle weakness, pain in her neck, and finally aseptic meningitis. She was treated with immunoglobin and aspirin and survived, but was near death for a few days.
