Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
First of all, we recommend that the symptoms of skin rashes that you refer to be examined first by a doctor or specialist skin and genitals to be able to ascertain whether the true source of sweat (miliaria) or not. The cause of the rash on the skin can vary so that it is not possible for the doctor to establish a diagnosis of skin disease without a systematic history taking and physical examination first.
Miliaria is a skin disease characterized by redness and itchy rashes on the skin. If it occurs in infants, the most common location is the neck, armpits, elbow folds, and groin folds. The cause is a blockage in the sweat glands that cause inflammation and rashes. Risk factors include a tropical climate, hot and humid environmental air temperature conditions, and daily activities that cause a lot of sweat. Handling from a doctor can be in the form of lotions / creams to deal with inflammation, and if necessary medication to help reduce itching.
If it is true that the condition that occurs in your child is miliaria, you are advised to take the following steps to help cure:
Bathe your child twice a day regularly with less irritating soap, such as baby soap
