Distinctive feature of chicken pox - rash on the head under hair and on mucous (in a mouth during a century etc.) . Very often this rash scratches.

Treatment: chicken pox passes independently therefore treatment can be only symptomatic: to bring down temperature, to process the itching rash brilliant green (in order that, combing bubbles, the child did not bring an additional infection there), to give an antihistaminic preparation that scratched less. It is possible to bathe at chicken pox! But at the same time it is impossible to pound the struck places - instead it is necessary to promakivat accurately them a towel.

Incubatory period: of 4 - 6 days.

Infectious period: all the time of rashes.

of Manifestation: some days before emergence of rash the itch and morbidity of skin can be noted. Then in this place the group of closely located bubbles will appear. Temperature rises extremely seldom.

Treatment: special antiviral ointments, for example with an acyclovir etc.

It is important: to use ointment right after developing of an itch and morbidity even before emergence of bubbles. In this case rashes can not arise at all.

the Syndrome “a hand - a leg - a mouth“

(from the English name Hand - Foot - and - Mouth Disease, HFMD), or enteroviral vesicular stomatitis with ekzantemy.

Activator: enterovirusa.

Way of transfer: fekalno - oral and vozdushno - drop. The virus is transmitted from the person to the person at communication, conversation, use of the general objects of use (ware, toys, a bed etc.) .

Immunity : after the postponed disease - lifelong.

Incubatory period: from 2 days to 3 weeks, on average - about 7 days. Infectious period: since the beginning of a disease.

of Manifestation : in the beginning temperature increases and stomatitis begins: rashes on mucous a mouth, pain at meal, plentiful salivation. Temperature sticks to of 3 - 5 days, is frequent on its background the diarrhea is noted, cold and cough in certain cases develop.

The name of an illness goes from places of dislocation of rash: it settles down on brushes, feet and around a mouth. Rash sticks to of 3 - 7 days, then completely disappears.

Treatment: does not have specific treatment, symptomatic cure for decrease in temperature and pain relief for stomatitis are used. The disease passes independently, complications are possible only in case of accession of a bacterial or fungal infection in an oral cavity. it is hard for p to Make to

the diagnosis of enteroviral vesicular stomatitis since rash is shown not at once and very often it is regarded as display of an allergy.

It is important: despite active use in treatment of stomatitis of various anesthetics, the first few days to the child it can be very painful is. In such cases it is good to use the most liquid food (milk, fermented milk products, milkshakes, baby food for kids, soups etc.) and to give it through a straw.

Way of transfer: vozdushno - drop. The infection extends at talk, communication, sneezing etc.

Immunity: after the postponed disease - lifelong. Children till 4 months have an immunity received vnutriutrobno from mother. Incubatory period: of 3 - 7 days.

Infectious period: all the time of a disease.

of Manifestation: sudden rise in temperature and through 3 - 5 days its spontaneous decrease. Along with normalization of temperature appears pink small - and srednepyatnisty rash. It settles down mainly on a trunk and, as a rule, does not cause an itch. Passes independently in 5 days.

Treatment: only symptomatic therapy - plentiful drink, decrease in temperature etc.

the Virus of herpes becomes aggravated against a stress or infections, for example a SARS.
the Disease passes

independently, there are practically no complications.


is quite often called a pseudo-rubella since skin displays of these diseases are very similar. A distinctive feature of a rozeola is emergence of rashes after temperature drop.

It is important: as well as in a case with enteroviral stomatitis, the rash which developed not in the first day of an illness is often regarded as allergic, It is sometimes really difficult to distinguish them, but allergic rash, as a rule, quite strongly scratches, at the rozeol of an itch should not be.


Activator: virus of a rubella (Rubella virus)

Way of transfer: vozdushno - drop. The virus is transmitted at communication, cough, conversation.

Immunity: lifelong. It is developed either after an illness, or after vaccination. To children, whose mothers had a rubella or were imparted from it, immunity to a rubella is transferred vnutriutrobno and remains first 6 - 12 months of life.

Scarlet fever

Activator: a beta - a hemolytic streptococcus of group A.

Way of transfer: vozdushno - drop. The activator is transferred at conversation, cough, use of the general objects of use (ware, toys etc.) .

Immunity: after the postponed disease - lifelong.

Incubatory period: of 1 - 7 days.

Treatment : only antibiotics of a broad spectrum of activity. It is very important to begin treatment as soon as possible since. scarlet fever can provoke development of such autoimmune diseases as rheumatism, glomerulonefrit, autoimmune damage of a brain.

Sometimes the illness proceeds in the erased form, without the expressed temperature increase, inflammations in a throat and rash. In such cases parents notice only suddenly begun peeling on palms. If it occurred - it is necessary to consult with the doctor.

It is important: as scarlet fever can provoke development of serious autoimmune diseases, for early diagnostics of possible complications doctors recommend to do blood tests and urine. For the first time they are handed over during an illness, and then repeated in two weeks after recovery, Then it is recommended to make also the electrocardiogram.

the Educational program
the Incubatory period - the period when infection already occurred, but the illness did not develop yet.
the Infectious period - time when the sick person can infect people around.
Can distinguish six “primary“ diseases with rash: the first illness - measles, the second illness - scarlet fever, the third illness - a rubella, the fourth illness - infectious mononukleoz, the fifth illness - an infectious eritema, the sixth illness - a children`s rozeola (a sudden ekzantema).
