Red Bumps On The Face And Neck Of Children Aged 2 Years?
good morning i want to ask about skin problems that my child is suffering from. my child is 2 years 8 months there are lumps in the face and neck and back area. dikuret because there are already a lot of numberx about 20 seeds should be anesthetized. all I ask is whether surgery like that is safe for children aged 2 years stgah? Will it not cause the effects of traumatic and prolonged pain? When did my child do the small surgery, the recovery time was around long?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Molluscum contagiosum is a disease caused by a virus box that infects the epidermal layer of the skin. The disease is spread through direct and indirect contact (for example, the use of shared towels, swimming pools).
Molluscum contagiosum generally can heal well, because this disease is classified as benign and can heal spontaneously. Within 18 months the skin lesions will disappear, but there are also up to 5 years depending on the immune status of sufferers.
The handling of this case is by removing a mass containing molluscum material. Can be done with cryosurgery, laser, electrocautery, curettage, or therapy with topical medications. The choice depends on the doctor's availability and expertise.
The above method requires anesthesia because it has the potential to cause pain during the procedure, irritation, or scarring. The method is also carried out one by one on each nodule on the skin, so it may require more than one therapy session. Because of the above factors handling to remove all lesions in the skin in children becomes quite difficult.
But actually this disease can disappear spontaneously even though it requires quite a long time. Especially in children may be considered not given the above therapy as long as the child's immune condition is classified as good so it is expected that in the long run they can disappear spontaneously.
We recommend that you consult further with a dermatologist in advance for the selection of appropriate therapy for your child.
That's all, hope you can help
