Red Spots Such As Measles In Children Aged 5 Years.?
Good night, I want to ask my 5-year-old son, now I have red spots like measles, I brought it to the doctor, said he was just irritated, I could eat anything, but there was no change and instead I brought his body to a different place, he said, measles, and after that the heat dropped but the red spot has not gone away for almost a month even though I’ve been to 3 different places for treatment. I wonder why my child. Do you have to go to a skin specialist or see a pediatrician?
Hello Maria, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Red spots on the skin can be caused by several factors. to get the right treatment, we need to know the cause of the complaint. Some possibilities include:
Measles, commonly accompanied by red eyes, coughs, colds
Chicken pox, generally a red rash filled with water
Rubella, generally begins with symptoms of no specific fever, then the rash appears from the face
Some things you can do:
do not scratch when itchy, wipe gently on the skin
consume lots of water, to keep the body hydrated, especially if you have a fever
wear clothes that absorb sweat
Change clothes when moist or sweaty
If the complaint does not improve, you should check your child to a pediatrician to get further history and examination as well as the right treatment for your child.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
