How To Get Rid Of Dry Sores That Feel Itchy On Children’s Skin?
What is the medicine to relieve dry wounds in children, huh? This wound also makes him itch itchy … what kind of ointment is it better to use?
Hi Trisa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Dry sores or what is also called a scab are healing tissues that form over the wound on the skin. This scab has the function of protecting the healing skin underneath so that it is not prone to injury and infection.
Once a scab has formed on the wound, it should not be scratched or scraped so that the skin underneath can heal properly and does not cause scarring. If the scab feels itchy, there are a number of things you can do:
clean the scab well every time you shower with warm water and mild soap, dry it carefully and don't rub it harshly
apply a moisturizer on the scab, you can use petroleum jelly on the scab area
You can apply a cold compress to the scab if it really itches, but a warm compress is recommended to facilitate faster wound healing.
If your child often accidentally scratches or scrapes the scab, cover the scab with a bandage so it won't easily peel off when the child scratches
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
