Tigdas Hangin or Roseola Infantum is a fairly mild and common viral illness that usually strikes children between 6 months and 3 years of age. Roseola is caused by a kind of herpes virus, although not the type that's sexually transmitted.
My little girl has caught the virus and had high fever Monday night. We had administered Paracetamol to her every four hours as prescribed by her pedia. She had rashes on her buttocks which I thought was diaper rashes. Her fever was on and off and so on the third day, we gave her a bath before we head off to her pedia.
Indeed, the pedia confirmed it was tigdas hangin. There were no more fever but the rashes are more visible on her face and back. She is starting to have appetite again and isn’t anymore restless.
Get well my baby Claire.
