Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swollen bumps resembling smallpox that appear on the head, neck, and also the hands can occur due to allergic reactions. Often, allergies to the skin will cause the skin to feel itchy, sore, reddish, bruntusan, dry, peeling, and so on. Allergic skin can also become suppurating if it has a secondary infection. This allergic reaction can appear in any part of the body, no exception like you experience. In addition to allergies, it can also bumps that appear on your body due to other causes, such as chicken pox, scabies, folliculitis, bacterial infections or other microorganisms, contact dermatitis, insect bites or other animals, drug eruptions, and so on.
Skin infections can also cause your child to have a fever (hot body temperature). Fever can also occur due to infections in other organ systems, immunization side effects, hyperthyroidism, immune disorders, heart problems, drug side effects, malignancies, and so on. Meanwhile, the stomach can bulge due to other causes, such as dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), intolerance, malabsorption, food poisoning, intestinal inflammation, enlarged liver or spleen, intra-abdominal tumors, and so on.
You can check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Depending on the cause, your condition can later be treated in various ways. At home, you can try the following tips first:
Do not squeeze or scratch the bump with pus on the skin
Bath diligently and cleanly with antiseptic soap
Wash your hands diligently
Only wear clean clothes, pants and headgear
Drink plenty of water
If the child's body temperature rises more than 37.5 degrees Celsius, first give him paracetamol medication according to the doctor's recommended dosage
Eat more regularly, small portions but often
Avoid the consumption of foods that are prone to make you allergic
I hope this helps.
