Doc I want to ask! Why is my child boils on the forehead but swollen to the front of the doctor … Until my child’s eyes are swollen two inches
Thank you for the question.
Boils occur when the hair root becomes inflamed due to infection. This infection will eventually cause inflammation symptoms, such as swelling, pain, warmth, and white spots in the middle because they contain pus. Not infrequently, symptoms of inflammation due to ulcers can spread to other areas around it, including spreading to the eyes when boils appear on the forehead.
Boils can often heal on their own with the following natural treatments:
Warm compresses to boil and swollen surrounding area
Improve children's personal hygiene
Do not carelessly give any medicine or herbs on the boils on the child's forehead
Let the child rest a lot, position his head higher
Encourage your child not to touch, let alone squeeze the boil
Give your child lots to drink
Don't let your child carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
You can do the above suggestions in 1-3 days. Frequently, mild boils will heal so you don't need to rush your child to see a doctor. In this way too, your child's risk of contracting the disease (including COVID-19) will be smaller.
However, if within 3 days your child's complaints don't improve, we suggest that you take your child to see a doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist right away ...
I hope this helps.
