What causes dark rashes under the eyes with dry cough and low fevers?

My 3½ yr. old daughter is on day six of illness. First, she had a fever of 40-40.5 for three days straight. It was non-responsive to acetaminophen. She had enough water and fluids and urinated frequently. Our doctor said to be sure that there was no respiratory involvement, and that she d be fine. On day 5, she developed a dark red-brown rash under her eyes. It s more of a solid blotch. There are some other areas, on her face, that are non-raised and blanchable, small reddish circular. They seem to fade and move a bit. But the area under her eyes is constant and deeper in colour. She has been developing a persistent dry cough and has remained anorexic. She s been running low-grade fevers and remains lethargic. Should I be more concerned... or is this just a rash following high fever? Our Dr. hasn t seen her, as this has been a busy influenza season.

These are normally settled by anti allergic medicines but are temporary measures. Repeated anti allergics are not advisable.

As per Ayurveda principles, its 'Pittaj' jawar i.e. fever caused by vitiation of Pitta humor of Vata, Pitta, kafa).

Allergy, urticaria, low grade fever, acidity, headache are few symptoms.

If you agree a basic precipitant of Tinospora cordifolia herb called Giloy Satva or Guduchi Satva may be given to such children. You may get it world wide in the form of Guduchi capsules. Pour the contents and give to child twice a day with honey. Else get powder from India or online.

Amritarishta liquid is also made of Tinospora cordifolia as a main content which, if available, may also be added 1 tsp bd + equal water.

Results are slow but its 100% safe. About 4 to 8 weeks of treatment with it may ensure immunity against such manifestations for months ahead. It doesn't interact with any other drug too, so you can continue current medicine also (though no need).

For any other questions pl write direct.

Hope it helps.
