Soap To Overcome Prickly Heat In Infants?
Good afternoon, my child has prickly heat, is it okay to take a bath using any baby soap, or there is anything the doctor can recommend, I am afraid the ntik will even increase if you use soap carelessly
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Prickly heat (miliaria) occurs when the sweat glands are blocked by the outlet due to excessive pressure, increased sweat production, or immature sweat glands (as in infants). Although it can cause itching and stubbornness that is very disturbing, most prickly heat is not a dangerous condition. However, you need to know, that there are also many other skin conditions that can show clinical appearance similar to prickly heat, even though the treatment is clearly different, for example folliculitis, milia, fungal infections, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, xerosis, and so on. Therefore, before seeing a doctor, you should not have concluded too early.
If it is true that your child's condition is caused by prickly heat, then this condition can be handled naturally in the following ways:
Wash your child clean and orderly
Use skin care products specifically for children who are hypoallergenic and non irritative, including soap, baby oil, powder, etc.
Do not overdo the oil or powder on the child's skin
Give children clothes that are comfortable, loose, made from soft, and absorb sweat
Do not let children carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
Although itchy, remind children not to scratch excessive skin
If the child has an allergy to a particular substance, avoid it from contact with that substance
If the condition of the room is hot or hot, use air conditioning as appropriate
Give children more to drink
Do not carelessly give medicines to children without doctor's advice
However, if the natural remedial steps above have not been successful in alleviating your child's condition, you should not be treated carelessly. Check it directly to the doctor or the child's special doctor so that it is handled properly according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
