The Lips Of 5 Year Olds Peel And Crack?
Hello, my child is 5 years old, at the beginning my son appeared like a wound in the area near the lips, after that his lips became abnormal in my opinion and sometimes up to the wound, his lips became pale and swollen from dry and peeling, and spread to the part under the eyes and nails (the nails become bumpy and like holes in spots). Already 2 years have not recovered. After being taken to the dermatologist some times he said only inflammation, some also said allergic toothpaste, then the last word the doctor said allergic to dot (things made from silicon). All the restrictions I have tried to avoid but do not affect. Every day I apply allergic ointment to my lips but it doesn’t heal, I’ve tried to make ointment for mushrooms too. (lips are only dry, peeling, not itchy, not runny)! What do you think it hurts? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Conditions that your child experiences, can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Dehydration or lack of fluids Fungal or bacterial infections Immune system disorders Allergies Lack of nutrition
Regardless of whichever possibility, the examination is absolutely carried out. What you've done so far is right by taking him to a dermatologist. But from your story, it seems that you have been changing dermatologists all the time by mentioning there are doctors who say only inflammation, some say allergic toothpaste, and dot allergies. This action is actually not quite right. Because if you change doctors, doctors who previously said that your child is allergic to pacifiers, do not know that he actually may not be allergic to pacifiers. He also did not know that the topical medication given to your child had no effect, as did other doctors. But if he knew, he certainly would not remain adamant that it was allergic to a pacifier and would think of other possibilities, maybe even do certain tests or investigations to find his tendencies.
So we suggest, because we still have difficulty describing the full condition of your child and however a direct examination is needed, you should bring your child back to one of the dermatologists who have treated him and bring all the drugs that have been given to your child. Let your child's dermatologist evaluate his condition, and if there are still no changes later, ask the dermatologist, according to his examination, what specialists can handle your child's condition, whether an immunologist, or endocrinologist and so on.
In the meantime, make sure your child needs his fluids, keep his body clean especially avoiding him playing with the ground, don't let him lick his lips or pluck dry skin on his lips, multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruits, and avoid cigarette smoke and pollution. So, hopefully answering your question.
