Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of red spots that itch like chickenpox in children may be caused by:
Varicella (chicken pox) Miliaria (prickly heat) Scabies (scabies) Fungal infections, or other microorganisms Singapore flu (hand foot and mouth disease) Atopic dermatitis Contact dermatitis Contact dermatitis herpetiformis, etc. Frequently, conditions such as those of your child are not dangerous. But indeed in some cases, if you do not get good treatment, this condition can continue to spread, even spread to other people around the child, as is also the case with your younger sibling's children.
Therefore, it is better for you to check your child's condition to see a doctor, dermatologist, or pediatrician. If necessary, some supporting tests, such as laboratories, allergy tests, etc. may be recommended by your doctor to your child.
For now, you should do it first:
No flushing forcefully on the child's skin Bathe the child regularly and cleanly, with special child hypoallergenic, non-irritating bath products Give him comfortable, clean, soft, and loose clothing Avoid children from contact with substances that are prone to triggering allergies and irritants on the skin Always keep the environment clean around the child Keep the child from direct or indirect contact with other children Give the child more to drink, and eat nutritious food.
