Skin Rash In Children Aged 19 Months?
I want to ask. My son is 19 months old. But from a small middle school now it appears every day a rash on the body, especially on the back and above the buttocks every time you sweat. It can be taken to the skin but again. As for my super-active child, I often sweat.

The sweat rash you mean seems to be miliaria or prickly heat. Miliaria is often experienced by infants to children, because the sweat glands are not fully developed. So that sweat is trapped under the surface of the skin. This causes inflammation that is characterized by a rash in the form of small red spots and itchy to the point of pain. Usually in infants and children, miliaria will be experienced in the neck region, but can also be in the armpits, elbow and groin folds and on other body parts.
The only way is to avoid being in an air environment with heat. If your child's clothes get wet from sweat, change immediately so that they don't cause other skin diseases, such as ringworm and phlegm. Wear children's clothes with materials that are relatively cool, loose and absorb sweat. The medicines can only overcome the symptoms that arise. Later this complaint will improve by itself according to the more perfect development of the child's sweat glands.
Consult with your doctor if your child has a fever or chills, there is a pus rash and swollen lymph nodes.
Thus hopefully useful.
