Natural Alternatives Among the Potential Remedies for Fifth Disease


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/22/2015 -- The Fifth Disease is a viral infection caused by the human parvovirus B19. It is believed to affect 50 percent of the adult population and 75 percent of children, usually between the ages of 5 and 15. While it is considered a mild viral ailment in children, it increases a sufferer's risk of developing flu-like symptoms. Today, people are resorting to various measures to alleviate the symptoms of the condition, and if possible find the best remedy.

Natural alternatives are believed to be among the potential remedies for Fifth Disease. According to experts, around 10 percent of sufferers experience joint pain and swelling. Natural remedies that contain anti-inflammatory properties, such as curcumin, are believed to help improve the condition of sufferers.

"Curcumin is a major ingredient found in a medicinal, ancient spice called turmeric. Its anti-inflammatory properties have been associated with a variety of health benefits," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

The condition is believed to affect individuals who live in temperate climates, and during winter and spring. It is also more prevalent in female children than boys. Individuals who have already suffered from Fifth Disease are believed to be immune from the condition for the rest of their life. Transmission of the condition is synonymous to viral colds, such as through a cough or sneeze. The good news is that only 50 percent of those who get direct contact with a person infected can get the condition.

Several symptoms start to appear within 4 to 15 days. Among the most common symptoms are a red rash on the cheeks and a red, lacy rash on the stomach, legs, arms and back. Other symptoms include sore throat, headache, joint pain, stomach pain and low grade fever. Adult sufferers are often the ones who experience joint pain, and it usually lasts from 2 to 3 days.

The Arthritis Foundation website has the information that can be helpful for sufferers. One highly informational tip is that when children suffer from joint pain and fever, they can be given anti-inflammatory drugs to alleviate the symptoms. These anti-inflammatory drugs include NSAIDs, which are pain relief medications often used by adults who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

NSAIDs are pain relief pharmaceutical drugs that are widely used by arthritis sufferers. However, due to the side effects associated with their use, more and more people are turning to natural alternatives with anti-inflammatory effects such as curcumin. Curcumin supplements can be bought at local health stores or online (
