My baby is 20 months old and has a caterpillar and now the head is red on the back and slightly swollen … what should I do?

1 Answer:

Good afternoon Jeffry, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itching, redness, or allergic reactions arising from insects are generally harmless and can heal on their own over time. What you can do for a while is sprinkle salicyl powder, cold compress the swollen part, and keep it clean so that it will not be exposed to caterpillars or other dirt again.

Even so, you also have to realize that there are other possibilities for the appearance of these symptoms in addition to caterpillars, such as diaper rash, allergies due to other ingredients, viral infections, and so forth. So if you are not sure, or the complaint does not improve within 1-2 days, you should immediately take your child to the doctor for further examination and determine the best treatment.

In addition, if the complaint is burdensome, for example accompanied by widespread swelling, your baby seems to be more congested, very fussy or even appear not cheerful as usual, do not hesitate to immediately take him to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
