Sores Due To Leprosy Insect Bites That Only Attack In Children Aged 1 Year?
Hello !! I want to ask my 1 year old child when he wakes up he always has wounds like insect bites but it only attacks my child even though we sleep in the same place … The shape of the wound is red and swollen when touched he will scratch “to ” it’s very itchy .. I wonder if the bed bugs don’t just attack the child … and how to get rid of itching naturally … please answer the answer
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of wounds on baby's skin that is reddish and itchy can indeed be caused by the bite of a bed mite. According to some literature, bed mites sometimes tend to bite some people, due to skin type, body odor, or other factors that are not yet clearly known. Therefore, it is not impossible, even if you sleep in the same place, only your baby is bitten by the bed mite, while you do not.
However, it's not just being bitten by a bed mite, itchy reddish sores on your baby's skin may also occur due to other factors, such as allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, skin infections, mechanical injuries (such as when scratched or pierced by sharp objects), bitten by other insects, atopic dermatitis, certain drug eruptions, and so on.
The good, if the complaint just appeared today, do not panic. Try to overcome it by:
Improve your baby's bodily hygiene, such as regularly bathing him, wearing him clean and soft clothes, changing his bedspread regularly every day Try, use a comfortable and safe baby sleeping mat, don't use cotton, not too hard, flat No apply or sprinkle anything on the skin of a wounded baby without a doctor's advice Give the baby enough milk, and balanced nutritional value MPASI Keep the baby from substances that might make him allergic If in 3 days the wound on the skin does not also improve, instead it expands, or a watery rash appears, festering, swollen, and other severe complaints, you should consult your baby directly to the doctor, dermatologist, or pediatrician to be given further management huh ..
I hope this helps.
