How To Deal With Prurigo In Toddlers?
, I want to ask if there are any recommendations for drugs for prurigo experienced in toddlers? And what are the most effective ways of dealing with toddlers?
Prurigo is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by itching and blackening of scratch marks. The exact cause is unknown but this condition is usually triggered by allergies, insect bites, skin infections (by bacteria, parasites, fungi or viruses).
Things you can do at home are to prevent the trigger factors that have been mentioned previously, keep the skin clean, use lotion after bathing and before going to bed to keep the skin moist, avoid scratching the wound (keep the child's nails always short), if it itches apply calamine lotion which you can buy at the pharmacy.
If your child's complaints get worse, you should immediately check your child's condition immediately. The doctor will examine the condition of your child's skin directly and consider the need for oral medication or not.
Hope it helps,
