Hello Fitriyantiamelia, Thank you for the question.
Fungal infections can occur in any part of the body. Usually this infection can also be followed by secondary infections by bacteria. Symptoms that can be experienced by sufferers are the appearance of red rashes, thickened skin, dry skin, scaly skin, accompanied by itching. If followed by a secondary infection by bacteria, it can be found pus or suppurating skin. Children can experience fungal infections due to our country's tropical climate, contact with other people or animals infected with fungi, or due to malnutrition. Fungal infections can be treated with antifungal drugs that can be in the form of ointments or oral medication, while for bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics which can be ointments or oral medication as well.
Have you checked your child with a pediatrician or dermatologist? If these symptoms do not improve, please consult with your pediatrician or dermatologist for further examination. The doctor needs to ask you about your child's symptoms and do a direct examination of your child's skin to determine the cause. If necessary, the doctor will also perform skin scrapings to be examined in the laboratory. If it is proven due to fungal and bacterial infections, the doctor will provide treatment according to the severity.
In the meantime, you can clean your child's face with a clean, damp cloth if it looks pus. Avoid sharing your child's personal tools with others such as handkerchiefs, towels or clothes. Keep children away from pets if you have them. Keep providing a variety of nutritious food for children so that their nutrients are met.
I hope this helps.
