Abstract

A new virus also known as tomato flu, or tomato fever, has been discovered in India in children below the age of five, as a viral infection. It is a complication of dengue or chikungunya fever in youngsters and is a prevalent infectious disease that primarily affects children and people with weakened immune systems. The main signs and symptoms of tomato flu in children are high fever, rashes, and excruciating joint pain. Treatment for the virus is similar to that for chikungunya, dengue, zika virus, varicella-zoster virus, and herpes. Paracetamol is used as supportive therapy for fever, bodyaches, and other symptoms. Isolation should be used for 5-7 days following the beginning of symptoms to prevent the virus from infecting other kids or adults. Children should be kept inside and should not share clothes or toys. Tomato flu is a viral etiological agent that causes fatigue, vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, dehydration, joint swelling, body aches, and rashes on the hands and feel. The typical presenting symptoms are blisters, high-grade fever, dehydration, skin rash, myalgia, swollen and aching joints, and skin rash and skin irritation. Tomato flu is a rare viral disease that rarely has complications and typically resolves itself in 7-10 days. Clinical diagnoses are made through a physical exam and history, and only the symptoms are treated with antipyretics and analgesics. Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen 6 can be used to treat fever, and it is advised to drink a lot of liquids and rest in bed for five to seven days.

Keywords: Tomato fever, Viral Infection, Isolation, Tomato flu, Symptom, Children.
