Hello Resti, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Based on the complaint that your child is experiencing, it could be an insect bite or insect bite / dermatitis venenata. Complaints of itching or burning or even a rash to bump on the skin is a reaction to the insect's bite bite. There are many types of insects that live in nature that are at risk of stinging humans when they are threatened by bed bugs. There are several types of insects that can cause mild to severe conditions.
To determine whether the complaint is really caused by bed bug bites, it should be checked in the bed area or in a place where complaints begin to arise in your child. The examination may need to be done at night when bed bugs are active. Spots of blood or small black stains from bed bugs may be found on the mattress.
Medications to reduce complaints can be given such as corticosteroid ointments and antihistamine drugs to reduce complaints. But the treatment should be based on examination by a doctor first. Due to complaints that your child feels, there are also a number of other possible illnesses that have the same complaint. Right now what you can do is:
Clean the mattress and dry in the sun in less than 30 minutes.
Wash clothes, bed linen or other items suspected of being a hiding place for bed bugs in hot water.
Use a vacuum cleaner or dirt to get rid of bed bugs or their eggs.
Maintain cleanliness of the body.
That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you :)
