Several things can occur related to complaints that mothers submit, namely:
1. Miliaria or prickly heat. Miliaria is often experienced by infants to children, because the sweat glands are not fully developed. So that when the air is hot, sweat becomes trapped under the surface of the skin. This causes inflammation that is characterized by a rash in the form of small red spots and itchy to the point of pain. Usually in infants and children, miliaria will be experienced in the neck region, but can also be in the armpits, elbow and groin folds and on other body parts.
2. Atopic dermatitis is inflammation of the skin due to allergies, characterized by redness, peeling, dryness and itching.
3. Hives or kaligato or urticaria. Generally caused by allergic reactions, such as allergies to heat. Can also be caused by autoimmune diseases such as lupus. Symptoms include an island-like rash, can be white or red, and feel very itchy.
Avoid children in a warm environment. For at home, mothers can use air conditioning. If the child is in a warm place, wear clothes that are thin, loose and can absorb sweat. Avoid pairing feathered clothes on children, because it can cause itching so that the child becomes increasingly disturbed. If there is a skin rash, apply an anti-itching lotion that also contains anti-inflammatory drugs. Mothers can also take over-the-counter anti-itching medicines. Prevent children from scratching itchy skin. To help relieve itching complaints, mothers can give an ice pack. Make sure the child's nails are always short and clean, ma'am.
If the complaint is increasingly disturbing or becomes very widespread or accompanied by an infected wound, immediately consult a dermatologist yes ma'am.
Thus hopefully useful.
