Symptoms of Kawasaki Disease

Kawasaki disease presents with a distinct set of symptoms that typically develop in phases. The initial phase often includes a high fever that is unresponsive to typical fever-reducing medications, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. In addition to fever, children with Kawasaki disease may experience redness in the eyes, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, a rash on the trunk and genital area, redness and swelling of the hands and feet, and irritation and swelling of the mouth, lips, and throat. 

As the disease progresses, more severe symptoms may manifest, such as abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and joint pain. Given the wide range of symptoms associated with Kawasaki disease, a prompt and accurate diagnosis is crucial for initiating appropriate treatment and preventing potential complications.
