If you have children at home, please pay attention!
This disease has been on the rise recently
It’s been nearly a month since school started
The number of pediatric outpatient clinics in major hospitals in our city has increased again
Mycoplasma pneumonia accounts for the largest proportion of cases

Lets come look
Yang Yimin, chief physician of pediatrics at Xiamen Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that after the start of school, the top three cases of pediatric fever are mycoplasma pneumonia, adenovirus and influenza virus, and 80% of hospitalized children are suffering from mycoplasma pneumonia.
According to data from Xiamen Fifth Hospital, more than half of the children in the pediatric outpatient clinic before the holidays were infected with mycoplasma.
Several issues that parents are most concerned about
Let’s highlight the key points——
What is mycoplasma infection?
Mycoplasma is widely distributed in nature, with more than 80 species.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae belongs to a category of mycoplasma. It is called Mycoplasma pneumoniae because it has a special terminal structure at one end that allows the mycoplasma to adhere to the surface of respiratory mucosal epithelial cells and cause lung infection.
The age groups with high incidence of mycoplasma infection are preschool and school age.
Some children who are more sensitive to mycoplasma will develop pneumonia after infection.
How to prevent mycoplasma pneumonia?
Mycoplasma pneumonia is a lower respiratory tract infection caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
The incubation period is 2 to 3 weeks, and the main symptoms are persistent severe dry cough, fever, headache, sore throat, etc.
Mycoplasma pneumonia is mainly spread through respiratory droplets and direct contact. The reason why children are susceptible to Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection is mainly because they are young and have low immunity.
If a child has a fever accompanied by a severe cough that does not heal for a long time, parents should pay attention and actively seek medical treatment.
Currently, there is no specific vaccine to prevent mycoplasma pneumonia. The key is to avoid going to public places with dense crowds and poor ventilation, and wear a mask when you must go.
