Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of pimple-like pimples on the thighs, legs, hands, body, and face in children may have many possible causes. To identify it, it is necessary to clarify again, what is the color of the nodule? Is it watery, festering? How big is the size? Is it accompanied by other complaints, such as fever?
Here are some possible causes of a stye as your child has:
Milia (excess keratin deposition in the skin) Miliaria (prickly heat, occurs due to inflammation of the sweat glands) Syringoma (inflammation due to blockage of the eccrine glands) Atopic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation due to hypersensitivity reactions) Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with allergenic substances or irritation) Trichoepithelioma (benign tumor originating from hair follicles) Warts (Human Papilloma Virus infection) Calcinosis cutis Sebaceous hyperplasia Molluscum contagiosum, etc. If you look at the medical history that the doctor has given, the doctor may suspect that your child's condition is caused by inflammation. This condition generally requires a long healing time. However, if you feel that there is no improvement at all regarding your child's condition after undergoing therapy from the doctor, you should return him to a dermatologist and genital specialist for further evaluation.
In the meantime, we recommend that you don't touch the nodules that appear excessively, let alone squeeze or apply drugs carelessly without a doctor's supervision. Always bathe your child 2 times a day using special baby soap, then give him comfortable and clean clothes. Strengthen his immune system by giving him breast milk, drinking enough water, and eating healthy and nutritious foods. Avoid close contact between children and adults with infectious skin diseases. Also keep your child away from exposure to allergens and foreign particles that can irritate their skin.
Hope it helps ya..
