Hello .. my child is now 2 years old 3 months old, he scratches and scratches until it bleeds and wounds .. r n I’ve been to a pediatrician but it healed then itching again .. what do you think? Could it be because I also often experience itching so that my child is itchy too ?? r n (From the age of 1 year he has started to itch until now, healed and then it appears again) r nPlease explain … thanks in advance 😊
From the information you have conveyed, it is necessary to know the causes of the itching experienced by the mother's child and also those that you experience yourself. If this itching complaint is contagious, then it is necessary to treat your child as well as treatment for you. Thus, both of them are not contagious and will soon recover from this itching complaint.
Some of the conditions below can cause itching complaints such as those experienced by the mother's child, such as:
Allergy, then the risk of mothers and children who have the risk of allergies, will cause complaints of itching again, especially if the allergen is not avoided
2. flea bites or scabies, if you have scabies, it can be transmitted to your child or husband
3. yeast infection
4. contact dermatitis or skin inflammation
5. insect bites, not contagious
In addition, give your child understanding to prevent excessive scratching which can put necessary risks to the skin and lead to infection and pus risk. Teach how to prevent injury or provide long clothes so that the child's nails do not injure. You can also cut the child's nails, thus preventing injury too.
If this complaint is still bothersome, consult a pediatrician or a dermatologist for a better examination and treatment.
That is what we can convey, read also scabies.
