The duration of Kawasaki disease greatly depends on when diagnosis and treatment take place. You should contact your family doctor or pediatrician about your child's symptoms if a fever continues over four days, or if any fever is accompanied by four of the following: body rash, red eyes, reddened and swollen tongue, red palms of the hands or soles of the feet, swollen lymph nodes, or peeling of the skin. The possibility of permanent harm from the disease may significantly decrease if treated within 10 days of its start. The illness can persist from 2 to 12 weeks, or even longer if complications occur.
