Hawaii, please advise my child there is red2 in the genitals, either because of diaper rash or what I also do not know. Are you planning to go to the hospital, it’s better to go to dr.spkk or dsa? thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
Diaper rash is classified in the case of dermatitis in the pubic area according to the diaper contact area. Complaints in the form of itching and red spots with firm borders follow the form of contact diapers, sometimes wet and forming sores.
Risk factors for diaper dermatitis include:
1. Diapers are rarely replaced
2. Baby's dry skin before diaper placement
3. A history of allergies in patients themselves and family
Handling is to change baby's diapers more often, and use a moisturizer before using baby diapers. Doctors will generally provide topical therapy to relieve inflammation and treat infections which often also aggravate the condition of the diaper rash. You can consult this matter with a pediatrician for further pharmacological treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
