Insect Bites In Children Aged 19 Months.?
Ass I want to ask, my son is 19 months old and he has an itch when the Javanese said that he was exposed to us … When I scratched it felt like a pinching needle. It’s been almost half a year, but how come it doesn’t heal? I’ve tried it on balsam, ointments, etc., but it hasn’t been cured, but now it’s even spicy in the itchy area and still bumps. Can our itch still be cured and how to get rid of the black marks? thank you

Itching because we still can be caused by contact with these insects. Usually itching complaints do not last long, after examination and direct treatment by a doctor, itching complaints can improve.

In connection with your question, there are itchy complaints felt by your child for 6 months, it might not be caused by us, so if this itching complaint is still felt by your child, then you should consider conducting an examination and consultation directly with a dermatologist or doctor your child's specialist. And should be within 6 months during this itchy complaint occurs, your child has received an examination and treatment by a doctor.
The presence of itching complaints that have lasted about 6 months, may be caused by allergic reactions, both food allergies or milk allergies that may occur and are not recognized directly. However, this needs to be confirmed directly by the doctor who is treating your child.
For now, you can still give lotion powder containing calamine active ingredients to help reduce itching complaints until you see your dermatologist. In addition, giving warm water compresses on the itchy area can also be given to help recovery.
Thus the info we can convey.
