Treatment Of Itching On The Skin Of Children Aged 7 Years Is Appropriate?
Good night, I’m sorry I want to ask, how do you deal with skin itching that occurs in children aged 7 years, the disease is very easy to appear when my child eats wrong, for example he eats foods that have eggs, can also be like sausages, nuggets, brain “Etc. Already treated a number of doctors and given a lot of ointment that is also not suitable. Guess how to overcome it? Thank you for your answer
Hello Ms. Iis
Allergy is an overreaction of the body when exposed to a particular substance or condition, so that eventually various symptoms arise such as itching and bumps for example. Because this reaction is part of the person's immune system, allergies can continue to emerge if the person is again exposed to a substance or condition that triggers it.
Medication is only to reduce the symptoms of an allergic reaction, but does not make the body lose the mechanism when exposed to substances or allergic triggering conditions. So the best way is to avoid these substances or conditions.
So that it can be said that allergies can not be "eliminated" and will continue to reappear as long as the substance or condition affects the person, but in certain conditions there are people who can slowly receive exposure to the substance / condition gradually so that eventually the symptoms of allergies become less or no longer even appear.
However, not everyone can tolerate this, so it would be better if you consult with a specialist pediatrician allergist and immunologist. In addition, allergies must not be underestimated, if the body's response to exposure to substances / conditions arise in excess, then the person may have difficulty breathing, convulsions, to stop breathing. So it is not recommended to provide foods that trigger allergies for your child.
Anti-itch drugs generally belong to the class of hard drugs, so their administration must be under the supervision of a doctor, especially children who are very sensitive to certain classes of drugs and the number of drug doses. If the symptoms of itching are still relatively mild-moderate, you can use salicyl powder to reduce the itching, but if it is sufficiently irritating, you are expected to take it to the doctor for further evaluation to determine what types and classes of drugs are safe for your child.
Thus the information that can be conveyed
