How To Deal With Itching And Back Pain In Children Aged 4 Years?
my child experienced itching and aching pain in the waist up to the feet how to deal with it
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Itching on the body can be caused by the following conditions:
Fungal infections of the skin
Allergic reaction to the body
Lice infections of the skin
While pain in the waist area can be caused by the following conditions:
Urinary tract infection
Muscle fatigue (myalgia)
Injuries affecting muscles, bones, ligaments, nerves, etc.
Urinary tract stones
To find out the exact cause, surely further investigation is needed. For that you should check your child to a general practitioner first. If further tracking is needed, the doctor will consider referring to a particular specialist according to the suspicion of the condition.
As for what your child should do is:
Take a shower at least 2x a day
Avoid consuming food or any contact with skin that is known to cause allergic reactions
Consume enough fluids, which is about 8 glasses of water a day
Avoid the habit of often holding back to urinate
Limit strenuous activities
Limit the habit of often lifting heavy loads
Cold compresses on the affected area
Paracetamol can be used to relieve pain, if the pain is severe
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
