The Cause Of Red Spots Appear On The Genitals Of Children Aged 1 Year?
Malm .. So my child is 1 year and 2 months old man. He has red spots on his genitals and there are those with red circular spots, why is that?
Hello my heart,
Does your child use disposable diapers? Does the child look uncomfortable and scratch the genitals? Complaints of red spots on the genitals of children can be caused by several factors below:
Diaper rash Insect bites Fungal infections Contact dermatitis due to allergies or irritations to a material that comes in contact with skin Scabies Balanitis Impetigo To find out the cause, first of all, you should see firsthand how the rash looks and if necessary, skin scrapings can be done to be sure. If your child seems uncomfortable or often scratches the genitals, I suggest that you see your child directly to the doctor first so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of the red rash so that your child can get more appropriate treatment.
In the meantime you can do the following tips:
If you use diapers, change diapers more often. If you are already wearing underwear, change your pants every time you take a bath and if it is wet. Try to prevent the child from scratching the itchy area. You can compress the itchy part with cold water. Cut the child's nails to avoid injuring the skin. which is more hypoallergenic. Hope it helps you,
