Anything That Should Not Be Done When A Child Has A Cold Flu?
Greetings, my child has been rash on my buttocks for 2 days and palms. the most appears in the buttocks area. Said the doctor who examined yesterday had a cold flu. I asked, is it possible for a child affected by the flu to get hit by water in the sense of bathing, and does the diaper not prevent the recovery of a rash in the buttocks area ??
Hello Mrs. Anggie Kurniawansyah Thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Singapore flu is basically caused by a virus where the virus causes sores on the palms, feet, mouth and can also be around the buttocks / buttocks. Children under the age of 10 years are very susceptible to contracting this disease.
During this time many myths are circulating among the public that the Singapore flu has restrictions on bathing, but actually this assumption is not true. On the contrary, from the medical side, patients are strongly encouraged to take care of their health and personal hygiene, one of which is to take a bath, only the thing to note is taking a shower by rubbing the body gently so that the rash does not worsen.
For diaper use it is best not to let the diaper be used for a long time, in the sense of frequently changing diapers at least once every 4 hours or if the diaper is still dry it can be changed at least once every 6 hours. It is intended that the skin moisture in the buttocks area is maintained, so as not to cause irritation or the emergence of bacterial infections that can worsen the condition of the rash on the back.
Basically Singapore flu can improve by itself at least 7-10 days after infection. So that no special medicine is needed to treat it, or if indeed the symptoms that appear are very disturbing such as fever, coughing colds, or inflammation of the throat, then it can be treated according to the symptoms that appear. In addition, the thing that needs to be considered is the way for the child's immunity to be maintained and increased so that the infecting virus can be controlled naturally by the body's own immunity. One way is to provide him with adequate rest periods, provide him with healthy and balanced nutrition, give him enough fluid intake, and provide plenty of foods such as fruits that contain lots of vitamins that are useful in shaping his body's immunity. If the symptoms arising from singapur flu are very disturbing and cause high fever, fussiness, fatigue and unwilling to eat, then you should take it to consult with your pediatrician to get the right treatment immediately. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information answers your questions. thanks.
