Do you mean your child's symptoms are red and itchy skin? If so, redness and itching in children can be caused by many things, namely:
Congenital skin inflammation (atopic dermatitis): this disease can recur, is congenital and is often a hereditary disease. May be accompanied by other congenital diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis Hives (urticaria): usually caused by allergies to certain proteins, for example those contained in food Skin inflammation due to contact allergies (allergic contact dermatitis) due to skin contact by an incompatible substance Inflammation of the skin due to allergies irritation (irritant contact dermatitis): for example, prolonged exposure to detergents, exposure to acids / alkalis, exposure to body fluids tomcat Skin dermatophyte fungal infection (Tinea): round rash, with redder edges, itching especially when sweating Candida yeast infection ( candidiasis cutis): a large reddish rash in the middle surrounded by a small rash, often in the folds area, itching especially when sweating. Blockage of the sweat glands (miliaria) To determine the cause of your child's complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will dig further into your complaint and will perform a detailed skin examination using a loop. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as examining skin scrapings to see the causing germs, and blood tests. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your child's complaints according to the underlying conditions. If deemed necessary or treatment does not improve, the doctor will refer your child to a dermatologist or pediatrician.
Things you can do to prevent the disease from worsening and maintain the health of your child's skin are:
Bathe the child at least 2x a day.Adequate the child's nutritional needs so that the immune system is good and not easily infected by germs Use loose, thin, soft, sweat-absorbing clothes for your child Use hypoallergent soaps and shampoos, do not irritate the skin, without dyes, and fragrances for your child That's the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful :)
