Night. My 8-year-old child has patches on the skin of the feet to the feet without any itching u0026amp; in folds there are like blackish skin rashes on the arms, legs u0026amp; neck sometimes accompanied by itching. This has happened since 2 years ago. Does my child experience skin stress? What medicine should I give to my child? Thank you in advance. Regards, Emma
Lots of skin diseases that can cause complaints of spotting. There are various spots that can mark a skin disease, for example patches that do not arise but only changes in color (macules), patches that arise with a flat surface rising edge (plaque), bumps such as solid grains (papules), patches purplish red spots held rather high (purpura), and many more.
For skin diseases, doctors really need to see a picture of the patient's skin disorders to be able to diagnose the disease properly. In addition, doctors also need to ask several questions related to patient complaints, for example:
When did the complaint arise? Is there a full recovery phase?
Complaints that accompany skin rashes such as itching, burning, fever?
Other family members who have the same complaint?
Family history of allergies?
History of exposure to certain substances on the skin?
History of drugs that have been applied to the patient's skin?
Some skin disorders that may be in accordance with the description of your complaint include:
To eliminate itching complaints in patients with skin diseases, usually given antihistamine drugs. This medicine is consumed for several days until the itching disappears. Dermatitis and prurigo are generally given ointments or oral corticosteroid medications. For tinea corporis because it causes fungal infections, antifungal ointment is generally given. Try changing your children's soap into a non-perfumed but moisturizing soap. Teach children to take a bath at least 2 times a day. Change your child's bed sheet regularly. Please bring the child to be examined first at the doctor to get a diagnosis and treatment that is appropriate for the skin disease he is experiencing. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
