How Long Will My Child Stay In Hospital?

Your child will have to stay in hospital till there is no fever for at least 24 hours. Most children stay between 3 - 7 days. After discharge from hospital, your child may still feel a little weak and may need to stay at home for about a week before he is fit to go back to school.

Are There Any Special Precautions After My Child Has Been Discharged?

If your child has been treated with IVIG, then your child's measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and varicella-zoster (chicken pox) vaccinations will have to be delayed till 11 months after the IVIG was administered. The schedule for all other vaccinations is not interrupted.

If your child gets the flu or chicken pox while he is on aspirin, please see your family doctor or paediatrician and let them know that your child is on aspirin for Kawasaki Disease.

Does My Child Need Any Follow Up At The Hospital?

Your child will be given an appointment for review about 1 - 2 weeks after discharge. Your child will also have to come back 2 weeks after the start of the illness for a heart scan (2-D echocardiography). The heart scan will be repeated in about 3 months.
