Sores On Baby’s Face?
Hello Please answer, my child is 20 months old, his face is right at the tip of his eyes and his lower nose is bleeding and then he is bleeding again because he is scratched so constantly … beg for a solution. thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, wounds that have started to dry often indeed feel itchy so the child does have a tendency to scratch the wound. If the wound does not have an infection, there is actually nothing special you need to do to heal the wound (because it will dry out by itself), but you should try your best to prevent your child from scratching the wound.
The following are some things you can do:
Tell your child not to scratch the wound
Cut your child's nails as often as possible so as not to hurt the skin if the child accidentally scratches the wound
Cover the wound with a plaster to prevent it from scratching
You can help reduce itching on the wound by applying cold compresses to the wound. If you see signs of infection in the wound (the wound looks widened, the surrounding skin is swollen, reddened, feels warm, pus comes out or odorous fluid from the wound), take your child to the doctor for further therapy.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
