My niece has had hand swelling on and off for about two weeks. For the past few days she has had a low grade fever, followed by rash on arms. Dr's. Ruled out Kawasaki disease, her body is now fully rashed and she has swelling of the face arms and feet. Does anyone have any ideas? She was negative for strep and Scarlett fever also.

  • Please take a moment to analyze her diet. Gluten? Dairy? Corn? Look into an anti-inflammatory diet, give her proteolytic enzymes with and without food, dosed by a CAM practitioner.

  • Cellulitis? It can take a few doctors before they hit on that idea. It spreads fast. It does require an anti-inflammatory diet. She may need a water pill to get rid
    of her little body..I feel so sad for her. Feel better soon little one.

  • In my opinion, that would be some kind of inflammation. I would suggest you to apply Manuka honey, on the affected area. Manuka honey would help to reduce the rash and also act as a moisturizer. Read more about Manuka honey here. http://www.comvita.com/health-foods/umf-manuka-honey.html

  • These conditions can take months or years to figure out because the doctors have to rule out so many issues including genetic markers. One way to speed up the process is it insist they test her for cytokine interlukin-2 levels. This is a very specific inflammatory protein/hormone that is at the root of most inflammatory diseases. After doctors could not find a single disease causing my inflammatory condition of the skin, muscles, joints and now blood, I convinced them to check this and bingo!
