Customer question:

What are the symptoms of atypical pneumonia in a child? Anonymous customer's question

Pharmacist's answer:

Atypical pneumonia in children is often caused by infection with microorganisms such as Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, or viruses and may differ from classic bacterial pneumonia. Children with atypical pneumonia often have mild to moderate symptoms, such as a dry or productive cough, a mild to moderate fever, and mild to moderate chest pain.

They usually show signs of fever or fever, which can be mild to high, depending on the severity of the infection. Cough can also be one of children's most prominent symptoms of atypical pneumonia. It can be dry or productive and aggravated by coughing or deep breathing. Children with pneumonia often show general malaise, manifesting as fatigue, lethargy, loss of appetite, or irritability.

Some children may experience problems such as rapid breathing (tachypnea), shallow breathing, or difficulty breathing. Other less common symptoms of atypical pneumonia in children may include headache, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
