Afiq is sick..again??


Yes and this time around he is down with Measles. It was started when I was in KL last week and that was the reason I have to rush back home from KL that day. His fever didn't settle down despite doses of anti pyretics..and finally on Tuesday the rashes started to appear. Today after 3 days, his fever settled and the rashes faded away. Although he had fever and rashes all over his body, he never throws tantrum either during the day or at night..Alhamdulillah..or else mummy also will throw tantrums because of not enough sleep :)
See those tiny rashes over his face and chest? That is called maculopapular rash in medicine.

Afiq got measles? Hope he's much better now.Nat, everyone will get measles once in our life time rite?

hhehhee..mummy don't be grumpy, nti banyak garisan2 dimuka..lolz! Afiq such a lovely lil boy..still maintain not grumpy like mummy...:p

natrah said...

Noushy,

yup he had measles last wk..tu yg memaksa I cancelled my date dgn LJ masa kat KL..but now he is well..no more fever or rashes.

Oh about measles..the statement that everyone WILL get measles sometime in their life mungkin tak berapa betul tp if you get it then it will give you lifelong immunity..meaning that sekali je lah dpr seumur hidup...yeay!legaaaaa coz all my 3 heroes semua dh pernah dpt measles...

Hahahahhahaaaa mummy mmg kdg2 a bit grumpy if she is tired :)tp tak lama pun..then sejuk la balik

natrah said...

Aleeya,

Afiq dah OK bout measles tu,no more fever no more rashes..tp selsema la pulakkk adoi penat eh jaga anak kecik2 nih...tp tu lah pengalaman jd mak kan?hhehehhee
semlm dia susah tido,blocked nose..sekali mak bapak nye lah tak tido :(

natrah said...

LJ,

usually masa nak keluar rashes tu yg teruk,dia tak selesa semua and high fever bila dah keluar rashes tu fever settling and tak gatal dah..but I think his measles tak lama sgt in 4 days dah takde rashes semua..1st 2 days mmg rashes very bad..so all in all almost a week la baru OK..

LadyJava said...

OOhh..... I tak ingat i dah kena measles tak.. but i know I've had chicken pox before and that's why I too a jab about 7 years back anti-chicken pox jab.. eh nak kena jab booster ke eh??

Salt & Turmeric said...

kesian afiq. kena measles lah pulak. tak tidur malam lah gamaknya mama afiq ya? nasib baik both parents doc. hehe.

natrah said...

LJ,

chicken pox will also give you lifelong immunity...so sekali je akan dpt seumur hidup..so if you got it oredi...so you will never get it the 2nd time...no need booster dose

natrah said...

Farina,

aiyooo doc lagi teruk la farina,selalu anak2 I undertreated...tak suka sgt bg diorang ubat..even si afiq ni measles I dok bg ubat demam jer...hehhehe kalau org lain sure nak ubat sapu lah ubat gatal lah..ubat kurang rashes lah...
but still tak leh tido mlm tu sama laaaaa mcm mak2 yg lain kalau anak sakit :(

LadyJava said...

Wah no need booster shot?? That is great news... sebab I ni takut needle!! lolzz..eh hep A, B and C must buat booster kan??? Best nyer ada kawan doctor ni.. free consult...cayang Nat!!!

Salt & Turmeric said...

hehe. u ni bunyi macam my mom lah pulak. dia dulu nurse. selagi kitorang tak sakit teruk, selagi tu lah dia kata takde apa2. lol.

natrah said...

Farina,

Your mum was a nurse?wahh noble job tu..
betul..bila kita dah in this field kita dah tau whether it's going to be ok or not...hehehhee tp I tak la ckp kat my patient mcm ni..kang ada yg tamau amik ubat langsung plak..susah akooooo..
