Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints experienced by your child can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Insect bites Breast infections Bacterial infections of the skin Skin irritation of certain chemicals Tumor allergy conditions
This condition can be determined to be checked again directly by the doctor because by seeing it directly, the doctor can get a lot of information that might be missed by the family. Our advice, immediately take your child to the pediatrician so he can get treatment. Your pediatrician will most likely only ask you about your child's medical history so far and conduct a brief physical examination before determining treatment, which is usually in the form of oral medication or topical medication.
Meanwhile, compress the swollen part with a warm compress, do not give any medicine without doctor's advice, and ask your child not to touch, scratch or touch the swelling first. So, hopefully answering your question.
