Festering Spots And Spots All Over The Body In Children Aged 3 Years
good afternoon doctor ..
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of festering spots between the fingers and toes to almost the entire body can be caused by prickly heat. This prickly heat occurs when the outlet of the sweat glands are blocked, such as due to excessive pressure, increased sweat production, as well as other skin problems. Impact, watery spots will appear, which can feel itchy, and can also become festering when infected secondary to bacteria (miliaria pustulosa).
It could also, in addition to prickly heat, spots that your grandchildren experience are caused by other factors, such as tinea manum, tinea pedis, tinea corporis, tinea versicolor, impetigo, scabies, folliculitis, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, bitten by mites or insects, drug eruption, and so on.
In order to improve, this condition should ideally be examined directly by a doctor, dermatologist, or pediatrician. With the right handling, of course the expansion and transmission of this skin condition can certainly be prevented. At home too, you should make the following efforts for your grandchild:
Wash him clean using bath products specifically hypoallergenic and non-irritating in nature
Do not squeeze, slurp, or give any treatment to the spots that appear
Give children clothes that are soft, clean and absorb sweat
Do not allow children to exchange towels, toiletries, clothing, and any personal items with others
Give children plenty to drink and eat nutritiously
Keep children from things that are vulnerable to make skin allergic
Improve cleanliness and air circulation in the environment around children
Hope this helps ...
