About Dr. Dhanya Dharmapalan

Dr Dhanya Dharmapalan is a consultant for paediatric infectious diseases at the Apollo Hospital in Navi Mumbai. He offers treatment for some of the most common infectious diseases acquired in childhood such as influenza, measles, hepatitis A, B, and C, and the novel coronavirus, etc. In addition, a paediatric infectious specialist may also address concerns over more common ailments such as ear infections, common colds, bronchitis and hand, foot, and mouth disease.

Infectious diseases can be contracted from anywhere. They are caused by microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. These microorganisms enter the human body and multiply rapidly to cause an infectious illness that can be passed from one person to person. Animals and insects also transmit certain infectious diseases.

However, most infectious diseases are entirely curable in their initial stages through medication and appropriate therapy. Hence, it is crucial to consult a doctor like Dr Dhanya if your child exhibits symptoms such as fever, fatigue, muscle ache or trouble breathing. These symptoms can also accompany other signs of infection, such as rashes, swelling, and vision problems.

The first course to prevent contracting an infectious disease is to get a complete set of vaccinations. In addition, it helps to follow other safety and hygiene tips of staying home when ill to limit spread and washing one’s hands. However, treatments exist in case a child contracts them. These include prescription medication such as antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals and antiparasitics.

Dr Dharmapalan is known for administering treatment that is appropriate for children. She often emphasises on the correct usage of antibiotics and states, “A child with a normal immune system can easily clear off viruses and recover in a short time. All that the child requires is supportive treatment.” With over 15 years of experience, she has established herself as one of the most reliable medical professionals at the Apollo Hospital in Navi Mumbai.
