Hello Tia, thanks for your question
Dermatitis is the medical term for inflammation of the skin not related to infection. In general, dermatitis is also known as eczema. There are different types of eczema with different causes. One type of eczema that is often experienced by children is atopic eczema.
Symptoms of atopic eczema in children are dry, reddish skin and very itchy. However, if scratched, the area will thicken, then blister, and ooze. Eczema occurs on the face (especially around the cheeks), scalp, inside the elbows, and the back of the knees. Most atopic eczema is related to a family history of allergies, either manifesting on the skin as atopic eczema or in other organs such as allergic rhinitis and asthma. Generally, about 50% of children who experience atopic eczema will disappear by itself after the age of 10 years.
The best treatment for this disease is to avoid its triggers, namely the source of allergies (allergens). Each child can have different allergens. To be sure, it is a good idea to have your child checked by a pediatrician. Meanwhile, to treat eczema that is currently taking place, doctors can prescribe oral drugs or topical drugs. Use according to doctor's instructions.
During the healing period, it is recommended that your child:
do not scratch the itchy area, it is better if the area is rubbed gently shower with soap that contains a moisturizer using soft and comfortable cotton clothes for the skin avoiding exposure to air or water that is too hot or cold, so take a shower with lukewarm water (warm ) Hope this information is useful
