Red Spots Filled With Fluids Like Chicken Pox In Infants?
Hello doctor, my baby 10 months already this week, skin spots appear like chicken pox (red and runny). At first the spots appeared like prickly heat but now they spread like chicken pox all over their bodies, the spots dry up themselves but then new spots appear and so on. Please advise? thank you
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Plenting that occurs in your child can indicate the following conditions:
Chickenpox Prickly heat Bacterial infections of the skin Burns etc. To confirm the exact cause, a further direct physical examination should be carried out. For that you should check your child to a general practitioner. If necessary, the doctor will conduct a supporting examination such as a blood test, or refer to a pediatrician or skin for further tracking.
As for what should be done:
Wash your child at least 2x a day Avoid the action of breaking plenting without going through medical procedures Enough consumption of fluids and nutrition of children as needed to help maintain good immunity Use children's clothing that absorbs sweat and thin, to prevent prickly heat
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
