Swelling in chickenpox

Quotation (Dedushko @ 17.5.2013, 9:59)

Kind time of the day for everyone reading the message!
HELP to understand what is happening and find answers to questions that concern us.
To the child 2 years 3 months. Boy. The first symptoms of chickenpox (temperature, a small rash ...) appeared on May 8 ...
Previously, chickenpox had an older brother (5 years old, without "straining" ... ..)
A few days before the initial symptoms of chickenpox(May 5) was vomiting with a frequency of 30-40 minutes. episodes 5-6 (in the morning, the causes are not defined, only assumptions, except oatmeal, compote did not eat anything.). The ambulance diagnosed food poisoning. has defined or determined treatment ... .k the evening the status has sharply improved. The family is happy and calmed down.
The first bad symptoms appeared a few days later (May 10). there was a small swelling of the left eye. increase in temperature to 38.
Call the ambulance. Prick and recommendation not to worry. Soon everything will pass.
By the morning of May 11, edema of the face intensified ... Temperature under 40 ... .Speaking (re) hospitalized in the infectious disease department of the children's hospital ...
Creepy (softly said!) Edema of the whole face (eyes completely blocked by edema, lips swelled ... look hurt !!)

The primary diagnosis ... Chickenpox complicatedinfiltrate as a result of repeated infection with staphylococcal infection .... The tumor on the right side of the cervix in a child. The operative intervention was supposed to remove the purulent focus of acute inflammation (a tumor on the neck) ... Consultation of two maxillofacial surgeons did not show the need for an operative intervention ....
According to the information of the attending physician, we have immunodeficiency,An acute inflammatory process against a chickenpox (chickenpox, moderate rash, little rash ...) conservative therapy with the use of antibiotics and other drugs is carried out .... MRI of the head was carried out .... All is normal (according to doctors ...) .. Blood tests (general ... biochemistry .... ) within the norm (according to doctors ...) .. Low protein ... Neuropathologist, child's ENT looked - everything is normal. The case is complex (according to the attending physician).
As of today (conservative therapy withevenings on May 11) ... there is a positive dynamics ... The edema decreases ... the child shows (sometimes) activity ... the eyes open ... the temperature "walks" at the level of 37-38.5.
The attending physician is stingy for information ... answers questions with common phrases, and our questions without answers just accumulate ... ..
We can not find the description of such clinical cases.
Tell me (if possible) to us.
1. What's going on? Whence such a violent reaction (a terrible edema of the face, a swelling in the neck on the right ..) is not typical for chickenpox ....?
2. Where to find sources of additional information for reflection ... in our situation?
3. What additional studies should be done ... which specialists should be involved in order to find out the reasons for what is happening?
4. How to exclude possible relapses in the future?

Many thanks.
Ukraine. Kiev. Alexander


Hello, Alexander. Unfortunately, it is impossible to imagine in absentia what is happening to the child. Edema can be of an allergic nature (eg, reaction to a medicine).
In occasion of an immunodeficiency - earlier it has been revealed or only now? And how exactly?
To recommend additional examinations, you need to see the full results for the already conducted, including the discharge of the examination of doctors.
The chickenpox actually does not have relapses, it's a rarity.
As for the sources of additional information, one can think when the situation is more or less clear (medical documents).

HUGE THANKS for the answer. GOD BLESS YOU!
If we have documentary materials from our side, will you not give up a more detailed correspondence consultation on our situation?

Yes, of course - the consultation can be continued. Unfortunately, the possibilities of correspondence consultation are limited, you understand, but all that is possible, we will. Another nice thing would be to see the photo (this is about the edema).
I hope that everything will be all right for you. Get well.
