In the present day and age, indeed there are many different forms of arthritis, each of which has a different cause. The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis, which is also known as degenerative joint disease, does occur following trauma to the joint, subsequent to an infection of the joint or simply as a result of aging. What is more, there is an emerging evidence that abnormal anatomy may contribute to early development of osteoarthritis! But it is to be noted at the same time that in genereal, arthritis diseases are developed among the children, though it may occur to anyone at any age. It has been estimated by the Rheumatology College in America that one out of 1000 children is vulnerable to juvenile arthritis. Throughout the world, especially in the developing world, as stated earlier, indeed there are many different types of arthritis that are found in children. However, though there have been various investigative studies, till now it is not discovered what actually causes such different types of arthritis in children, hence at present prevention is also quite unfeasible. Though efforts are on to reach a conclusion being aided by both the geovernmental and non-governmental protagonism in various countries! Therefore, when we speak about children and arthritis, we are reminded of the Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA). It is one of the most widespread diseases in the midst of the various different types of arthritis. It is indeed a frightful disease that occurs mostly in children and it is popularly referred as juvenile idiopathic art hritis. Now what are the indications of these diseases? The indications of such diseases are stiffness and joint pain, which are quite similar to adult arthritis. But, this indication commences to assemble in those children who are below the age of 16. The treatment differs with each child and the indications also differ in stiffness. The other different types of arthritis are found to be comprised of systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis!
It begins first and foremost among the children with a fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit and above, which comes up and goes down. At several times, this specific type of fever is found to be associated with an odd kind of itchiness, which in particular arises and vanishes. Keep it in mind that the thrust of the onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis does not occur with fevers or rash, but do occur years later. It is true, that there are cases, when the children do feel arthritis pain but only at the time of fever! If your child is suffering from some kind of high fever contact the doctor at once, since systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis not only inflames the child's joints, but also it does inflame the internal organs too. Observe, whether the child feels weakness along with high WBC count! If it happens, at such time, treatment method contains analgesics, other medicines, along with observation of the children's diet and usual physical activities. The record shows that it occurs in girls more as compared to boys and in particular attacks to at least 5 joints of a child's entire body.
So what should you do? Contact the doctor immediately, since any delay can lead to the growth of various side effects resulting to a permanent loss of vision or persistent eye troubles! But if the treatments are done timely, the affected child can recover with usual physical activities, drugs and standard check ups.
