Can A 6-month-old Baby Use Ketoconazole Ointment?
Hello doctor, my baby who is 6 months of age contracted skin fungus. Can you give ketoconazole ointment / tablets … because if left unchecked, even add a lot of white spots
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain what symptoms are experienced by your baby rather than directly giving a diagnosis of "fungus on the skin". Explain in more detail how the lesions on your baby's skin, their location, when they occur, if there are other symptoms experienced by the baby, etc.
Basically ketoconazole ointment is a hard drug (a drug with a red circle label) that should not be given if it has not been done directly to the doctor (especially in infants and children). This drug should also not be purchased without a prescription from a doctor. The diagnosis of an abnormality in the skin must also only be made by a doctor who performs a direct examination of your baby's skin. Therefore, you should do a doctor's examination first to find out for sure the diagnosis of abnormalities in your baby's skin and what drugs are right to give to your baby.
For now, try to maintain the cleanliness of your baby's skin by bathing him regularly, dry his body well before putting on clothes, don't wear clothes that are too thick and layered, give clothes from materials that are soft and easily absorb sweat.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
