Hello! My friend’s son has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. He is only ten years old and I can’t understand what may have caused this disease. There is no one in his family who suffers from arthritis (maybe a grandmother, but this is connected to her age) so I can’t see the cause. What is the treatment for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis?

Hello! Pain relievers and anti- inflammatory drugs are the usual medications needed for some children. Of course if the patient’s condition is more serious, help from medications designed to limit the progression of the disease will be needed. Typical medications used include non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen and naproxen reduce pain and swelling. In severe cases corticosteroids are used to relieve the symptoms.
