, my child is 14 months old. After playing, I washed her hands with soap and after that I gave antiseptic gel. And after that, he usually puts his finger in his mouth … Is that dangerous?

1 Answer:

Hello Hanna,

Thank you for the question.

At the age of less than 2 years, most children are fond of putting anything in their mouths, their own hands are no exception. This condition certainly needs to be handled well, because it risks causing children to experience a variety of health problems, including digestive infections, respiratory infections, choking, and so on. Not all antiseptic soaps are safe to use on baby's skin, even more so when it is eaten into a child's mouth.

Our advice, to take care of your child's health, you wash your child's hands frequently, that is, with clean and running water and use special children's soap. If you also want to use an antiseptic gel, then choose the ingredients that are specially formulated for children, are non-irritating and hypoallergenic. Do not forget, also make sure your child is always under adult supervision when playing, and do not place dangerous objects that are vulnerable to be consumed within the reach of a child's hand.

Hope this helps ...
