ABSTRACT

While mankind is still battling COVID-19, a new virus known as tomato flu has emerged in India. It has mainly afflicted children younger than 5 years. This rare viral infection is considered non-life threatening and is in the endemic state. The first case of tomato flu has been observed in the state of Kerala and since then 82 cases have been reported so far.[1] Moreover, Odisha has also reported 26 cases of tomato flu and all neighbouring states like Tamilnadu, Karnataka and Maharashtra are on alert. Tomato flu or tomato fever is atypical viral disease with manifestations like skin irritation, dehydration, and rashes. It won’t be a new viral contamination however will be an after-impact of chikungunya or dengue fever in children. Tomato flu can be a new variant of the viral hand, foot, and mouth disease as suggested by few studies. It targets mostly children aged 1–5 years and immunocompromised adults.[2] The flu got its name from the emergence of red and painful blisters throughout the body that gradually enlarge to the size of a tomato.
