Bostonka interesting facts

1. Bostonka is divided into four stages of the disease.

2. The first latent phase of Boston usually takes 3 to 5 days and is asymptomatic. This is the time when the disease breeds and the virus enters the lymphatic system.

3. The second prodromal phase of Boston during 2-3 days may include fever, chills, malaise, swollen lymph nodes, and angina-like symptoms.

4. The third phase of Boston proper lasts about 3 days. At this time, papular or maculo-vesicular rash appears on the surface of the hands, feet, mouth, and sometimes in the gap between the buttocks. The skin lesions are small – up to 5 mm in diameter, salmon-colored, may be tender and cause discomfort, but are unlikely to be itching or burning.

5. The last phase of Boston is healing, which can take up to 11 weeks, and begins with skin and mucosal changes. In this phase, the epidermis of the palmar and plantar surfaces of the feet, described in some cases, may be thickly flaked.
