Rashes On The Neck And Groin Of 11-month-old Infants Never Heal?
Hello, my child is 11 months from 3 months ago, my child has eczema and has been given antibiotics but the rash on his neck and groin has not healed, what is the most effective ointment to cure the rash?
Does eczema rash have a wound? Are antibiotics given by doctors or given alone? Has eczema confirmed? Eczema (commonly referred to as atopic eczema) is an inflammatory condition in the skin that causes skin to become dry, red rashes, itching, peeling, then blackish scars can appear or lighter marks on the skin (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). When itchy skin is scratched, sores can occur which facilitate secondary infection by bacteria.
Eczema is enough to be treated with moisturizers or can be given corticosteroids to relieve inflammation of the skin. Antibiotics will only be given if there is a suspicion of secondary infection by bacteria (for example due to injury due to continued scratching).
Regarding the condition of your child's skin that there are still rashes on the neck and groin, it needs to be confirmed again whether the rash due to eczema or due to other causes. The rash can be caused by atopic eczema, contact dermatitis due to irritation / allergy to materials that come into contact with skin (soap, detergents, telon oil / eucalyptus oil), diaper rash, allergic reactions (food, medicine, milk), fungal infections of the skin, or hyperpigmentation that hasn't faded yet.
For the time being you can do the following tips first:
Stop using telon or eucalyptus oil for a while
Give the child a moisturizer, for example by using baby cream
Give clothes that are comfortable and loose
Adjust the room temperature to make it more comfortable
Cut the child's nails so as not to hurt the skin when scratching
Give soap and detergents that are more hypoallergenic and moisturizing
Change diapers more often, if possible reduce disposable diapers
If with the above tips complaints of rashes on the neck and groin do not also improve in 1 week, I suggest that you see your child directly to the doctor so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of the rash so that your child can get further treatment that is more maximal yes .
Hope it helps you,
