How To Treat Skin Infections In Children Aged 20 Months?
what medicine? My child aged 20 months had a skin infection, at first I thought I got chickenpox because there was a small fluid in his body.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
In general, skin infections can be caused by:
1. Bacteria, called ectima or impetigo, such as Krustosa impetigo, bullous impetigo, etc.
2. Viruses, for example varicella disease (chicken pox), shingles, hand foot mouth disease (singapur flu), etc.
3. Mushrooms, for example tinea.
4. Parasites, for example scabies or house dust mites.
Each disease has a different treatment. Like, bacterial infections treated with antibiotics, viral infections treated with antivirals, as well as fungal and parasitic infections. Therefore, it is necessary to know in advance what germs are the cause of childhood skin infections. To find out is needed direct examination. For that, you should immediately take the child to the nearest doctor, so that it can be done directly. If you already know the infectious disease experienced by children and their causes, then the appropriate treatment according to the cause can be given.
Meanwhile, routinely clean the child's body. Bathing children using special soap for babies, because the soap contains natural ingredients so it is less likely to irritate the skin of children. Clean the child after playing outside the house, if necessary limit the child's activities outside the home until the complaint improves.
Thus hopefully useful.
