Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Allergies are conditions where the body responds excessively to a substance or what is called an allergen. This allergen can take any form, it can be any type of food, any kind of medicine, dust, pollen, animal hair, even clothing. And symptoms caused by allergies can include redness, itching, diarrhea, sneezing, and so on.
In your case, there are a few things to consider first. First, you need to make sure you know the trigger for the allergy and that you have eliminated it. Because allergies can almost be said to be a disease that cannot be cured and can only be avoided. So that if your child is still near the allergen, the allergen will continue to appear even though you have given medication. Therefore, once again, the main requirement for allergy healing is to stay away from the causes of allergies and to be able to stay away, of course you have to know first. If you have trouble, you can consult a pediatrician to find the cause together.
Second, and last but not least, is whether you believe it is an allergy. Did you hear it from the doctor or from the perception that your child's symptoms are similar to allergies. We're also struggling to tell because you didn't mention the symptoms. But apart from allergies, conditions that can cause similar complaints are:
Diaper rash or diaper rash Atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema Prickly heat Worms Psoriasis
So our advice is if you haven't checked your child at a pediatrician, get it checked out immediately. If you have previously checked with a pediatrician, come back for an evaluation even if your doctor does not ask for it. Tell your pediatrician that the symptoms are not getting better, so that your doctor will re-evaluate and look for other causes or give stronger drugs.
Meanwhile, make sure your child's bottom is always clean by always changing the diaper immediately if it gets dirty, adjusting the size of the diaper to your baby, avoiding using powder, and avoiding using soap or wet wipes that contain alcohol and fragrances. Avoid giving drugs or ingredients without the doctor's knowledge because a baby's body cannot be equated with an adult. We wish your child a speedy recovery.
That's all, hope it helps.
