The Body Of An 11-year-old Child Is Itchy After Recovering From A Fever?
Good evening doctor, my daughter is an 11-year-old girl, when on 29 my ankle has a fever .. Then after the heat fell from yesterday evening my ankle is itching all over her body.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clear, before itching appears, do you give your child certain medications? Besides itching and fever, are there any other complaints that arise, for example in the form of skin rashes, nausea, vomiting, coughing, runny nose, shortness, defecation disorders, and so on? Is there a history of certain illnesses that your child has previously suffered from?
After experiencing a fever, itching almost all over the body can occur due to allergic reactions. This allergy can occur for example if you give certain medications to overcome your child's fever before. Not only itching, drug allergies can also cause redness rashes on the skin, swelling, shortness of breath, nausea, and various other complaints. In addition to drugs, it can also, this allergy arises due to other triggers (not always related to fever experienced before), for example food, cold, air substance, clothing materials, and so on.
Complaints that your child experiences can also arise due to other causes, such as skin infections (such as bacteria or viruses), chicken pox, atopic dermatitis with secondary infections, dengue fever, measles, insect or other animal bites, and so on. Without a direct inspection, it is difficult for us to identify which exact conditions underlie your child's complaints. It is better to have your child checked directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that the cause of the complaint is clear. Some types of tests, such as blood tests, allergy tests, etc. may be recommended by your doctor so that it is clear what treatment needs to be done.
At this time, so that the itching feels better, you can remind your child to bathe diligently and cleanly using room temperature water (not cold or warm water so that the itching does not get worse), use clothes made from soft and loose, sprinkle salicyl powder on the skin itchy, and not recklessly giving drugs (including itching or allergy medicine). Do not forget, avoid your child from contact with substances that are vulnerable to cause allergies.
Hope this helps ...
