Allergy Or Skin Disease, What Is The Cure
Tonight doc I want to ask, my child is almost 3 years old itching on the skin accompanied by small red spots, Especially after eating some foods such as noodles, eggs, sausages and sea fish, the spots will be more and more itchy, then a few days then after my child experienced it my husband and I also experienced the same itchy itchiness? Is this allergic ?? Considering my husband and I have never had a history of food allergies, I have visited various doctors until the herbal treatment but it has not yet produced results. So is this really an allergy or other skin disease? Then what medicine should we consume? Please explain and help, doc Thank you

Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Some of the following skin diseases, can be related to the symptoms that your child is experiencing, namely:
1. Scabies or scabies, which is a skin infection caused by the parasitic sarcoptes scabiei. This disease will be characterized by a rash of red spots that resembles a tunnel, itching is most felt at night and is easily transmitted to family members.
2. Folliculitis, which is an infection of the hair follicles or where hair growth is caused by bacteria.
3. Atopic dermatitis, which is a skin reaction caused by an allergic reaction.
Some things you can do to relieve symptoms and prevent recurrence, namely:
1. Avoid things that you think are the triggers, such as if it is triggered to consume eggs, you can avoid them and if you consume eggs, then only a little, like half or one egg in 3 or 4 days. Very bridal is recommended to consume it in several consecutive days.
2. Maintain cleanliness of the body and clothing. Use a mild soap on the skin, does not contain fragrances and other irritating substances. Iron each garment and other cloth before use.
3. Avoid frequent bathing using warm water because it can make the skin dry so easily irritated. However, occasionally may yes.
4. It is strictly not allowed to use cloth together, such as towels, clothes and others.
You should visit a doctor if complaints still don't improve.
Thus hopefully useful.
