Hi Harofah,

There are many causes of bumps, redness and itching in children, including:

  Miliaria crystalina (prickly heat) Due to channels to the sweat glands that have not been formed completely in young children Small reddish, itchy bumps, especially in the neck, chest, face, and groin area Contact dermatitis Inflammation of the skin arising from contact with a material that is irritative or material that triggers allergies Small reddish nodules in certain areas that are in contact with these materials, for example if because of the necklace material it will appear in the neck area only. Very itchy or can also be accompanied by pain. Urticaria As a result of the body's hypersensitivity reaction to a substance that comes in contact with the body or is consumed reddish bumps such as being bitten by mosquitoes / ants that cluster or spread throughout the body, bumps such as islands, itching, can be accompanied by symptoms of swollen lips, petals swollen eyes, shortness of breath, redness on the face. Generally can disappear by itself if contact with the originator is removed. Crustose impetigo Due to bacterial infection Usually preceded by a cold cough Reddish bumps on the skin especially the face and neck, itching, turning into thick, yellowish scabs. Bullous impetigo occurs when blisters form on the skin, which when broken out produces fluid and turns into thick sores. Scabies As a result of Sarcoptes scabiei mite infestation on infectious skin, due to contact with scabies sufferers or objects that have been contaminated with mites such as sheets, sofas, etc. Small reddish bumps, especially on the sidelines of fingers, can spread to the face, skin head to pubic when in children, intense itching, especially at night Because there are various diseases that can cause similar complaints, mothers of course need to take the child to be examined directly first to the doctor to determine the right treatment. The doctor needs to look directly at the child's skin lesions and ask for a history of complaints, risk factors, and what treatments the mother has given to the child's skin.

If caused by miliaria, mothers can simply bathe the child more often with water and soap, create a cool sleeping environment (fan, ac), wear children's clothes from cool materials and made from cotton that absorbs sweat. To reduce itching doctors generally give antihistamine drugs. In cases of urticaria and contact dermatitis, patients need to avoid exposure to triggers, use of antihistamine drugs to reduce itching or topical corticosteroids. For impetigo, children are usually given topical or oral antibiotic treatment (if there are very many skin lesions). In scabies treatment needs to be done to all family members who have similar complaints, usually using a permethrin ointment that is applied to the entire body and allowed to stand for 24 hours and then rinsed. In addition, the entire house must be cleaned, bed linen washed and soaked in hot water, the beds are dried in the sun.

Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
