Hello Bimbi,


Thank you for the question.

The appearance of smallpox resembling smallpox on the palms and soles, white patches such as thrush on the lips and oral cavity, difficulty eating and drinking, and excessive fussing in infants may indicate that he has an infection, for example, the flu in Singapore, chicken pox, cutaneous candidiasis, shingles, impetigo , scarlatina fever, measles, and so on.


Other triggers, such as contact dermatitis, drug eruption, Kawasaki disease, atopic dermatitis, autoimmune disorders, malnutrition, insect bites, gastric acid reflux, gastroenteritis, Crohn's disease, etc. can also cause complaints like what your baby is experiencing right now.


Judging from the information you convey, it seems that your baby's condition is quite severe. Therefore, you better check it directly to the doctor or the nearest pediatrician. Physical examination, blood test, urine test, or maybe other supporting tests will be done by the doctor so that he can give your baby the best treatment in accordance with the cause of the complaint.


As a first step, the following handling you can do:

Make sure the baby's body is always clean, give him clean clothes and toys, don't be carelessly held / kissed by others, and also keep the surrounding environment clean
Give the baby lots of breast milk, healthy foods and high nutritional value, and lots of water
If he does not want to eat and drink, give in small but frequent portions, or modify the shape and appearance of the food to make it more attractive to babies
If there are things that make a baby allergic, do not get closer to it
Do not squeeze, stab, or slap carelessly nodules and spots on the child's body
Help calm the baby when fussy
do not panic
Don't also carelessly give the baby medicine

Hope this helps ...
