Red Spots Like Chicken Pox On The Skin Of Children Aged 15 Months?
I want to ask my 15-year-old child, already 3 weeks. There are red spots like smallpox, but some are watery, some are not, and they grow only on the hands and feet. What exactly is that?
Are there any other complaints besides the reddish blisters, for example does the baby look scratching the blisters? Is there a fever? If this has been going on for 3 weeks and the blisters don't appear thoroughly, then it's likely not chickenpox. Some possible conditions that can be experienced by your baby, including:
Atopic dermatitis Impetigo Pemphigus / contact pemphigoid Contact dermatitis Consult this matter with your pediatrician. Doctors need to look directly at skin disorders, so they can predict the diagnosis. Keep the baby's skin clean by bathing twice a day. Make sure the baby's nails are always short so they don't hurt when scratching. This is important to avoid further bacterial infections. Avoid applying various oils or other ingredients to the baby's skin, because allergic reactions might occur.
Hopefully this answer helps you a little. Regards.
