Itching In The Area Behind The Knee In Children Aged 3 Years?
Tonight, I have a 3-year-old daughter. These days often scratching the skin behind the knee or the knee crease. Initially lost, but appeared again. His skin looked black and many wounds from scratching his hands. So sometimes my child likes to cry when exposed to water because it might be sore from the wound which is still wet. What I’m confused about, is now spreading. To the area below the folds of the buttocks, the skin under the left foot or the back of the foot (the exact place if the blisters caused by shoes) What do you think is the most effective medicine for relieving itching? scratching always tight, so it must always hurt). Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching (so often scratched) on a child's skin, including in the area behind the knee, then spread to the buttocks and legs, can indicate many factors, for example:
Infection, for example due to fungi (such as tinea versicolor, tinea pedis), mites (such as scabies), bacteria (such as impetigo, prickly heat), or viruses Contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with allergenic or irritative substances) Atopic dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to atopic tendencies) Insect bite marks or other animals Excessive emphasis, for example due to the use of tight clothing, crushed during sleep Seborrheic dermatitis Xerosis, etc. This condition, if not handled properly, can make a child always want to scratch it again and again. This action, obviously can cause the skin to become blackish, injured, and sore, especially when exposed to water.
Therefore, we recommend that your child go directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that he can properly evaluate and handle complaints on his skin. Further examination, such as examination of skin tissue samples, allergy tests, etc. may also be recommended by your doctor.
The following initial handling you can do:
Bathing children with clean, use special bathing products for children Give children clean clothes, not too tight, especially made from heat Do not allow children to exchange personal belongings with others Diligently washing children's hands, shorten their nails periodically Give children understanding not to scratch itchy skin Improve cleanliness and air circulation in the environment where the child lives If the child has a history of allergies to certain substances, keep it away from the allergen. Apply calamine lotion to the skin of itchy children.
