Treatment For Red Spots On The Arm And Spread To Several Parts Of The Body?
Hello doctor, permission to ask. how many days does my child’s skin have red spots on the arms and other parts of the body. what kind of drug or ointment is suitable for my child’s recommendation, 7 years old. Impetigo.Thank you🙏
Hello Yozha, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints experienced by your child can indeed be an impetigo, but can also be caused by other conditions such as:
Scabies eczema (scabies) Folliculitis (inflammation of hair follicles) Chickenpox To determine which conditions are experienced by your child, it is highly recommended to check your child directly to the doctor. After a direct evaluation, it can be determined whether or not your child has impetigo, and what medications are recommended to be given based on the condition.
In the meantime, it is strongly not recommended to use ointments or other drugs without clear doctor's advice because they can cause worsening of the condition. Also pay attention to whether there are certain things (for example food, dust, air etc.) that trigger or worsen your child's complaints, if any, avoid these exposures to your child.
It is also advisable to maintain the cleanliness of your child's body and prevent your child from scratching / breaking existing cenang because it can worsen the condition.
I hope this helps.
