Ano nga ba ang Tigdas Hangin?

Tigdas Hangin is also known as Roseola Infantum or Baby measles. It is different from measles, it is mild and very common infection for babies below 2 years old. Tigdas hangin is different from tigdas talaga (measles). Yun measles yun yung delikado. Kaya nga may vaccine para dun, kung mapapansin naten nagbabahay bahay pa yun mga health centers natin para ma make sure na may vaccine yun mga baby sa communities naten kasi delikado sya.

We went to Sean’s pedia due to his on and off fever. #OAmom ng tawagin pero i know my son and hindi sya nilalagnat na mag-last more than 2 days and besides no symptoms ng sipon or ubo. That’s also the advice from my mom, if 3 days may lagnat pa din at hindi nawawala dalin na sa doctor. Fever is a sign that there is something wrong in the parts of the body.

After the check up, here’s what I’ve learned from doctora about tigdas hangin and want to share with you. Kasi i asked her, “Doc, may vaccine (MMR) naman ang baby ko, bakit nagkatigdas pa din sya?”. She answered, “Mommy, ang tigdas hangin is roseola infantum, wala naman vaccine para dito, it is different from measles. Mild lang ito at hindi delikado, after mawala ng lagnat saka maglalabasan mga rashes and it will last for 5 days. Hindi naman ginagamot kusa lang sya gagaling at mawawala.” She also added na “pwede maligo at mahanginan si baby, please wag kulubin at balutin si baby”. Madame kasi myths na kapag may tigdas hangin daw bawal maligo at bawal mahanginan. Hindi din kami gumamit ng kulantro. Yun allerkid at zinc lang yun nireseta ni dra. ke Sean. He’s ok now, wala na syang mga rashes. 3 days lang yun rashes nya nawala na din.

So, Paano ba malalaman na Tigdas hangin lang o Tigdas na talaga? Kasi kung titingnan. Pareho lang sila ng symptoms – fever and rashes. So ganito daw yun mga mommies. Kapag tigdas hangin after mawala ng fever saka lalabas yun mga rashes pero masigla pa din si baby at hindi na nilalagnat bali rashes nalang. Sa tigdas talaga fever at rashes, pag lumabas rashes nilalagnat pa din and sometimes may iba pang kasabay na sakit. Huwag po tayo magdalawang isip magpacheck up mga mommies.

By the way, Dra. Cristina Magno pala name ng pedia ng baby ko. Pedia pa sya ng daddy ni Sean nung bata.hehe. Actually 3rd pedia na sya ni Sean, kasi i wasn’t satisfied dun sa mga nauna. 6 months si Sean simula ng lumipat kami sa kanya. Now my son is already 14 months. 😊
