Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Prickly heat (miliaria) occurs when the outlet of the sweat glands in the skin become blocked, so that it causes a lot of sweat to accumulate and cause inflammation. This condition can appear on almost the entire body, especially those who sweat a lot and often experience pressure, namely around the back, neck, buttocks, body folds, and surrounding areas. Symptoms that appear can vary, can be a reddish and runny rash (miliaria crystalline), reddish spots that feel itchy (miliaria rubra), large bumps that are runny and suppurating (miliaria pustulosa), or larger bumps and are located in the layers of the skin that are more localized in (miliaria profunda). Prickly heat is more common in children because the sweat glands are not yet ripe. It could also, this condition arises due to being influenced by hot weather, lots of physical activity, overheating (for example due to using a jacket or thick blanket), or excessive emphasis (for example due to too long a bed rest).
Prickly heat is probably what triggers a rash on your nephew's buttocks. Or, it could also be a rash on the buttocks due to other reasons, for example:
Irritation, for example due to scratching or rubbing against diapers that are too tight Allergies, for example due to certain oils or soaps Skin infections, for example due to tinea cruris, scabies, impetigo, folliculitis, shingles Other skin inflammation, for example due to seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, drug eruptions, and so on Overcoming this rash can be done by identifying the cause of the rash first. Therefore, you should check your nephew directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that the best treatment is provided. It may be that the doctor will encourage your niece to undergo additional examinations, for example allergic tests, skin biopsies, laboratory tests, and so. In the meantime, so that the rash on the buttocks decreases, you can help your niece do the following steps:
Maintain good personal hygiene, including regular bathing, use clean underwear and pants, change underpants at least 2 times a day, do not use diapers that are too narrow, change diapers every wet Don't apply or give indiscriminate therapy to the buttocks without doctor's advice No let the buttocks come in contact with substances that are prone to trigger allergies or irritations Do not scratch or slough off the rash that appears on the buttocks Drink plenty of water Hope it helps yes ..
