Hello Fudholah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Bathing is an activity that is quite important to maintain the cleanliness of a baby's body and is not something that should be avoided when the child is sick, both skin pain and fever.
Even so, it is still advisable to pay attention to several things before bathing a baby when he is sick, namely:
Make sure the soap used does not cause irritation to the baby's skin which can cause worsening conditions of the skin disease that is being experienced Bathing not too long, just 5-10 minutes every time you take a shower Using warm water Dry the baby's skin gently until it is completely dry and use a towel dry, soft and clean If you have not checked the child's skin condition and fever, then it is advisable to check with your doctor to get the appropriate therapy and also recommend more appropriate treatment in accordance with the conditions experienced. It is not advisable to use any topical or oral medication without clear doctor's advice.
I hope this helps.
