Overcoming Children’s Skin Suddenly Blisters?
Hello, I want to ask why my child’s skin suddenly blistered from the groin to the instep of his foot, like a burn and now a white scaly like tinea versicolor, even if I didn’t get fire or hot water! What’s the medicine? Can the white spots disappear or not? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Blisters in children can be caused by:
Impetigo bullosa: a bacterial infection of the skin, characterized by pus-filled blisters. Often in the leg area
Inflammation of the skin due to tomcat (toxic irritant contact dermatitis): due to exposure to tomcat body fluids, skin blisters and pain
Bullous epidermolysis: a genetic mutated disease that causes blisters on the body
To determine the cause of your child's complaint, it's good 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 worsening of your disease and maintain the health of your child's skin are:
Don't try to break the blister on your child's body
Wash hands before touching the blister area of the child
If there are broken blisters, you can clean them using sterile gauze and 0.9% NaCl solution. Avoid the wound from dirt and dirty water
Bathe the child at least 2x a day
Sufficient nutritional needs of children so that the immune system is good and not easily infected with germs
Keep hot, sharp, poisonous objects out of reach of your child to avoid harm
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful :)
