Allergy Medicine For Babies Aged 11 Months?
My child is 11 months old. From the age of 3 months have experienced allergies until now has not healed. What is a safe drug that can cure these allergic diseases. And what medicine should I take for emergencies to relieve my child’s itching.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Allergy is a condition when the body responds excessively to a substance called an allergen. Allergens can be found in a variety of things, food, drinks, medicine, cosmetics, dust, animal hair, pollen, even certain clothing materials. And excessive response can be in the form of appearing red spots, itching, swelling, diarrhea even if severe can become shortness of breath and decreased consciousness.
In your case, we actually recommend that you consult your child to a pediatrician or dermatologist (if the complaint appears on the skin) first because there are many conditions that might be misinterpreted by ordinary people. Among others are:
Diaper rash Psoriasis Fungal infections Mite infections Contact dermatitis Contact digestive tract infections Lactose intolerance
And there are many other possibilities because the truth is still not clear what the main complaints experienced by your child. Especially with so many symptoms and a very young age, even if we base the drug administration only from limited information about your child, it can actually be dangerous. Therefore it is important to check your child to a pediatrician or to a dermatologist to make sure your child gets a proper examination and treatment.
Meanwhile, if you have ever seen a doctor before and it has not improved, check with the same doctor for control and evaluation because some conditions can not be handled in just one meeting. By going to the same doctor, an evaluation will be made and seen, whether the possibility of the condition has changed, and whether the medication needs to be continued, added, or replaced. Meanwhile, keep meeting your child's nutritional and fluid needs and keep them away from sick people, dust, smoke and pollution. So, hopefully answering your question.
