Red Rash On The Skin When Going To Sleep At Night In Children Aged 3 Years?
I want to ask, my child is 3 years old, if I want to sleep at night his body rashes red, mostly on his back. Later if it’s gone by morning itself, why is that? thank you for your answer
Hello Ms. Rara! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The condition in your child may be caused by miliaria or in layman's language called prickly heat. Other possible conditions still cannot be ruled out. Prickly heat occurs due to blockage in the sweat channel in hot conditions. This often happens to children during hot weather, especially if the child uses clothes that are too thick. It's best if you wear loose clothing, not too thick, and can absorb sweat, especially when the child is sleeping. Also avoid using thick blankets on children. If your child is always supine during sleep at night, it helps you change its position after a few hours. If you have tried these methods, but the child still has a rash, it helps you see a doctor to be examined directly. See your doctor immediately if there are sores, pus, redness, swelling, or pain in the back area. Keep an eye on your child, do not scratch his back because there can be injuries that can lead to infection.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
