How To Deal With Irritation To The Skin Of Children Aged 14 Months?
my child is 14 months old. Initially there was a red spot that became blister and now widened to a large amount? Can you share the medicine and ointment? Does it include skin fungus?
Hello Nengnurhasanah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints experienced by your child at this time can indeed be caused by fungal infections on the skin, but can also be caused by other conditions such as skin irritation, allergic reactions to the skin, or pyoderma (skin infections due to bacteria).
To determine what treatment should be given to help reduce these complaints, you should bring your child to see a doctor directly. If you feel that your child's skin condition requires further treatment, your doctor will definitely advise you to take your child to a dermatologist.
In the meantime, ensure the cleanliness of your child's skin by bathing your child with water and special soap for babies at least 2x per day or more often if your child sweats a lot. Also consider whether there is something new that is used on your child (especially in the area where a complaint appears) before the complaint appears, if any, stop using it. Also make sure you change your baby's diapers often and keep their skin clean and dry. Do not let your child scratching the skin areas that have complaints.
It is not recommended to use any ointment or oral medication for your child at this time because it can aggravate the complaint. You can use calamin powder to help reduce itchy complaints that your child may feel. Henceforth only use drugs given by your doctor after a direct examination of your child.
I hope this helps.
