Dangerous Mastocytosis On The Skin Of Babies 6 Months?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Mastocytosis is a condition that occurs when cells in the body called mast cells, accumulate in the skin or internal organs such as the liver, spleen, bone marrow and intestine. Symptoms shown in sufferers of this condition vary depending on the affected body part.
There are two types of mastocytosis, systemic and cutaneous. What your child is experiencing is most likely the type of cutaneous because this type only attacks the skin and is often diagnosed in children. The cause of this condition is unclear, and the disease itself is actually included in the category of rare diseases, but so far considered to be related to mutations or changes in genetics. Whether or not this disease is dangerous depends on how badly the condition has affected a person and what parts are affected. So the severity can only be answered by the doctor who treated him directly.
Regarding your question, because the condition of the disease is also unclear the cause apart from mutation and even then it rarely happens, so far no specific restrictions on this condition, and no treatment has been found besides drugs and ointments. Even though you might hear or find traditional medicines and herbs, medically it has not proven its efficacy and impact through research. It could have succeeded, but we cannot guarantee it. Even the medicine and ointment given was not to cure the disease completely, but only to relieve the symptoms.
So the best step you can actually do is to regularly check your child, and if you want a second opinion, you can get it checked directly to a dermatologist. Because remembering that this is a very rare disease, it is still very open to the possibility that this is another disease condition and not mastocytosis. If this turns out to be another disease, the treatment might be simpler and don't need medical treatment. But again, a direct examination is mandatory.
Then for prone, this disease does not directly cause obstacles in the growth and development of children, so we suspect there are other conditions that result in this. Just like before, an examination is also mandatory for this and we recommend that you take your child to the pediatrician. Because various checks need to be done also to see whether it just cannot lie on its stomach, or are there aspects of communication, social, and other fine motor skills that are blocked, and what is the most appropriate treatment.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, still meet the nutritional needs, stay away from sick people, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
