Treatment For Red Spots On The Armpits Of Children Due To Insect Bites
At night, a few days ago my child seemed to be bitten by an insect, but I don’t know for sure whether the insect is an ant or not. So that the area near the armpit was a red spot but it appeared I had given it a bepathen ointment but it didn’t disappear as well as it seemed to add up a little. No itching because the child has never scratched it. My child has sensitive skin, for example when he wakes up his clothes are wet because of sweat. If not replaced, the skin on his back dries. What should I treat? Thanks.
Hello Karinata, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer the question that you are giving.
You do not need to worry if indeed complaints occur due to insect bites. Rashes on the skin caused by insect bites are often referred to as Venenata dermatitis. You just need to keep your insect bite clean by washing every day, and keep it from getting damp. Moreover, if the insect bite is caused by a harmless / non-venomous insect, and the child still looks normal, it can be seen from his daily life, eating, playing, etc. For treatment you can use antihistamines to relieve symptoms that are usually experienced after a bite.
At this time you can simply evaluate your child's complaints, if there is no worsening either in the bite wound area, or your own child you do not need to take him to the doctor. But if the complaint gets worse you can take him to the doctor.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
