How To Treat Water-filled Blisters In Infants Aged 11 Months?
My son aged 11 months got blisters filled with water. What is the medicine?
Large, resilient skin lesions such as domes with thin skin filled with fluid can be called bullae. Smaller resilience is called vesicles. If it contains pus it can be called a pustula. Bullae can arise due to trauma (swipes, burns), infections, autoimmune diseases and inflammation of the skin.
Bullae is a symptom of an illness, to provide treatment, it is necessary to first determine the diagnosis of the cause of bullae that appears in your child. To determine the diagnosis of a skin disorder, the doctor needs to do anamnesis and physical examination. The doctor needs to ask about the history of complaints (when the lenting first appears), in which part of the body the lenting first appeared, other symptoms that accompany skin disorders, risk factors that may be present in the patient, a history of similar skin diseases in the family, a history of treatment that has been given in children, and so on.
Examination of skin lesions includes the distribution of bullae, bullae forms, other skin appearance that is typical for a disease, and so forth. Some diseases related to bullae formation include:
Steven Johnson syndrome
Besides the causes above there are still many other abnormalities. Second-degree burns can also provide symptoms of bullae formation. Treatment will certainly be adjusted to the causes found from the examination. For example, bullous impetigo because the cause is a bacterial infection, it will be given topical antibiotics or taken. If due to burns, burn treatments are done using a dressing (special gauze) wound or aspiration of the contents of the bullae sterile.
Please bring the child to see a doctor in order to get an examination and appropriate treatment. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
