The Cause Of Children Aged 15 Months With Fever And A Rash On The Head Accompanied By Water And Pus?
noon My 15-month-old child has a red rash on his head like pus, and it’s been almost a month. At the same time the body of a child is hot … My question is whether the heat was due to a rash on the head that seemed to have water or pus earlier.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of fever experienced by your child can occur either related or not with symptoms of rash on his head, because there are diseases that have both of these symptoms at the same time and some are standing alone. The possibility could be due to infection from various bacteria, viruses and fungi, due to immune system disorders, skin irritation and allergies.
Our advice to ensure this, you should check your child to a dermatologist to ascertain the possibility through history collection, direct observation and possibly support if needed. This is quite important because it is not uncommon for several conditions that appear to be similar, apparently caused by very different things and so are the handling. So, the handling that your child will receive later will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, compress your child's forehead with a warm compress, do not scratch the rash, keep his body clean thoroughly and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
