Sagging And Flabby Skin Like A Parent In A Child?
Doctor, I want to ask, why has my child’s skin become sagging, before my child was hospitalized and sentenced by my son to lactose intolerance, what is the solution?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
How old is your child? Has this complaint been seen by a doctor? Does your child have diarrhea? What is the current fluid intake?
A child's skin turgor is best assessed by examining the skin on the stomach. Doctors do skin turgor examination by lightly pinching the skin of the abdomen, then releasing it and letting it go back. Old pinch marks (more than 3 seconds) show poor skin turgor, the most common causes include severe dehydration and / or malnutrition.
We recommend that your child be consulted directly to a doctor or pediatrician so that proper evaluation and treatment is needed. The doctor needs to do anamnesis and physical examination, and if necessary a supporting examination, to identify problems and causes that may be the underlying. At home, you are advised to make sure your child gets enough fluid intake. If at this time the age is still less than 6 months, give exclusive breastfeeding according to the wishes of the child (on demand), at least every 2 hours the child suckles. Do not delay seeing a doctor if the child's condition is getting weaker, the heart rate / pulse is getting faster or even palpable, or has decreased consciousness.
To enrich insight into these types of contraception, you can read articles about symptoms / signs of dehydration. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
