Hello Joko, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Prickly heat is indeed one of the conditions that can cause itching complaints most often in children, but it is highly recommended to check your child's condition first to see a doctor to ascertain whether your child's current condition is experiencing prickly heat or caused by other conditions such as:
Fungal infections of the skin
Inflammation of the hair follicle (where hair grows)
After an evaluation, then what therapy is most appropriate to give to your child can be determined.
While this is at home, you can try to:
Wipe off areas that sweat easily on your child's body by using a dry, clean cloth
Change your child's clothes often, especially if you already sweat
Give clothes that are made from comfortable and not tight on your child
Wash your child every time he sweats
You can apply calamin powder to the area that is experiencing a complaint to help you experience itchy complaints
Avoid holding your child often especially when the weather is hot
Keep the temperature of the air where your child is always at a comfortable temperature
Do not give itching medication to drink anything until there is further advice from a doctor
I hope this helps.
