Good afternoon Sri Margiyani, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Reading your child's complaints, there are several possible conditions that your child may be experiencing at this time, such as:
Fungal infection of the hands / feet / sweat Sweat contact dermatitis Eczema Scabies To determine which disease your child is suffering from, you should bring your child to be examined directly by a doctor. The doctor will conduct a thorough evaluation of your child's complaints and physical condition at this time, then it will be decided what disease is being suffered and what is the most appropriate treatment for your child's current condition. Maybe the doctor will consult your child with a dermatologist to ensure your child gets the optimal treatment.
In the meantime, make sure you and your child do not scratch the areas that are experiencing complaints because scratching can aggravate complaints or even cause new wounds that can become infected. You can apply calamin lotion to your child to help reduce itching. Also make sure your child's skin is always clean and dry, especially when your child sweats, immediately dry using a soft cloth and immediately change his clothes. Wash your child at least 2x a day by using soft soap especially for children. Do not give any topical medication or oral medication without any clear doctor's advice. Also pay attention to what things might be causing or complicating complaints, avoiding those things as much as possible to minimize complaints.
I hope this helps.
