I have read your other thread and you said this is your wife's excuse for not coming back ( yet). As far as I know there is no outbreak of any sort. Could it be chicken pox? These things can be endemic. We won't know unless you give us the signs and symptoms. If she got something, ask her to take a photo for you. Google skin disease or tropical disease, read about it and compare itto what your wife tells you. Check out the photos and compare. Does your wife know what it's called locally? Have her go to the nearest baranggay health center and get it checked up. If it is contagious, then your baby is also at risk so better have it checked asap by medical professionals.

is there a skin virus going around the phils, kinda like measles but not it comes during rainy season?? anyone know what it is and what it is called and how is it treated any advice will be welcomed

Hi,

I read your other thread. Anyway, in our province right now,there's a lot of cases having a measles.

The patient should have a plenty of fluids and encourage extra rest. If fever is making uncomfortable, you may want to give a non-aspirin fever medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. But the best thing to do is to see a doctor ASAP....

I am doctor, can you describe? Measles have what is called Koplik's spots. They are like bullet holes and generally fan out from the belly region. Some even get minor cases from the MMR shot. They are red and white and look like a gun shot. Chicken pox are generally very itchy and tend to stay away from areas of the skin that are hairless, like your palms and feet. Chicken pox can be very bad for adults. CP for kids is really no big deal, but both on an adult are a mess. Vaccines could pose a problem, now, as she will show antibodies.

I don't know any break-out here. I'm form the Philippines too. Probably she got something but is not known as an epidemic. I read your other post too and I don't understand why your wife is refusing to see a doctor. If it is something that she believe is contagious, the more she should go and see a doctor to prevent your child from having it too. Did you see them while you guys are communicating? (I'm thinking of Skype or YM here). I'm sorry, I don't wanna be rude but your other post before this made me feel that your wife is trying to make excuses to stay in the Philippines. If you see them and they are real (that they got them), encourage her to see a doctor.. I know our country is well known for herbal stuff but there's no safe than having it checked by a professional.

My fiances 10 year year old daughter caught what appears to me the measles from an infant two weeks ago. The infection ran its course, fever controlled with the Philippine equivalent to tylenol. Subsided after one week.
