Good evening doctor. 2 weeks ago my child (3th, 9m) was scalded on his left face. At that time I immediately took it to the emergency room. His skin condition has improved now, even though his new skin still looks pink. is there any food / external medicine that can help get rid of the white streaks on my child’s face? – My child has a routine swimming schedule. How long has it been since healed, can I swim again? Thanks for the answer ..

Hello Cindra, Thank you for the question.


You do not need to worry because the body has the ability to heal itself and for burns, provided that previous wound care goes well then your child's skin can return to normal. The process of healing the skin color of burn patients is quite varied, depending on the severity of the burn and the location of the burn. During the healing process, new skin tissue will grow and the skin will turn pink. The skin warrants can return to normal usually lasts for 12-18 months. No are certain foods or drugs that can help speed up this recovery. What you can do is maintain a nutritious intake of food for your child because good nutrition can help optimal wound recovery. If the skin tissue has improved (there are no open sores), then your child can basically swim at any time. However, care must be taken to avoid direct sun exposure because direct sunlight exposure on the skin that has not returned to normal can cause the skin to darken. Your child can continue swimming indoors and do not forget to use sunscreen if you are outdoors. It is better if you consult with your doctor first to determine whether the condition of your child is now allowed to return to swimming or not. The doctor needs to do a direct examination to ensure the condition of your child's skin so that the doctor can give the right advice.


I hope this helps.
