Itching And Red Rashes On The Back, Chest And Hands?
Hi … my child has more than 1bl experience itching and red rashes such as prickly heat on the back, chest and hands. First the doctor said maybe the mattress was dirty. I have to change the soap. It’s the same … I’ve already applied hydrocortisone but it doesn’t help. I have been purol for 2 days but at night he was a bit fussy because of itching. He said that other doctors said he had to go to a skin specialist and maybe an immunologist. Isn’t that too much? Indeed, my child’s skin is rather sensitive. As if stung by mosquitoes / ants, they will heal 1-2 weeks and leave black marks. Do you think there was enlightenment from the doctor on this site? What should I do? thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
In general, there are various causes of itchy skin rashes which make it very difficult for doctors to diagnose skin diseases without systematic systematic taking and first physical examination. Therefore, if a skin rash is suspected as miliary and has received therapy, it is recommended that you check your baby again with the doctor who treats you so that you can do a post-therapy evaluation. If miliaria (prickly heat) is still not completely handled in a first-level health care facility by a doctor, there is indeed a place to refer to a dermatologist and a specialist for evaluation and treatment that is more specialized.
Miliaria is a skin disease characterized by redness and rashes that itch on the skin. In infants, miliaria is most often located in the neck, armpits, elbow folds, and groin folds. Miliaria is caused by clogging of sweat glands causing inflammation and rashes. Risk factors for miliaria include: tropical climate, the condition of the air in a hot and humid environment, and daily activities that cause a lot of sweat. Medical treatment is usually given in the form of lotions / creams to treat inflammation, and if necessary medication to help overcome the symptoms of itching.
To help the healing process and prevent the recurrence of miliaria, you are advised to apply the following steps:
Wash your baby 2 times a day regularly, using less irritating soap, for example: baby soap
Put on your baby loose clothing
Strive for air conditions at home quite cool and good air circulation
