Baby Skin 11 Months Old Bruntusan, Itchy And Dry After Drinking Formula Milk?
my child is 11 months old … since he was given SGM formula milk, his skin has an itchy skin and the skin is dry enough to reach his genitals, is that a factor of milk or pampers? because pampers are often replaced and never been used for a long time .. before being given formula milk it was never like this ..
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to make sure in advance, does the rash and itchiness experienced by your child occur only around the diaper area, or does it occur all over the body as well? If it occurs in other areas as well (not only in the diaper area), then your child may not experience diaper rash. Rashes and itching all over the body can indeed be caused by an allergy to formula milk that has just been given, however, other possibilities must also be considered, such as:
atopic dermatitis contact dermatitis (for example due to the use of detergents or deodorizers for clothing that irritates or allergic reactions to the baby's skin) prickly heat insect bite skin infections due to viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites allergic to other foods fever with rashes (for example rubella infection, measles, exanthema subitum, etc.) You should try to take your child to the pediatrician first. Pediatricians can see the shape of the rash on the child's skin and look for possible causes of the rash. For now, if your child looks uncomfortable or itchy because of a rash on his skin, you can try to compress the rash with a cold compress and give lotion containing calamine on your baby's skin. Try to bathe with only warm water (not too hot) and apply a moisturizing skin afterwards. Wear thin clothing, made of soft material and absorb sweat. Try adjusting the temperature of the crib in particular so that it is not too cold and not too hot for your baby.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
