Until Metal Do Limit Child?
Good morning, doctor! nI may ask, for the past 2 days my child has appeared red from the buttocks, hands and feet up to his face and his body has warmed. what is the cause and what medicine is suitable. (my daughter is 2 years old, bdn 11kg)
The appearance of a red rash on the skin accompanied by fever in children can certainly be a worrying thing, although this condition is not always a serious condition. Some of the possible causes include:
Measles Chickenpox German measles/Rubella Viral exanthema (viral infection) Dengue hemorrhagic fever Hand foot and mouth disease/Singapore flu Kawasaki disease Scarlet fever
To determine the cause, your child should be examined by a pediatrician so that it can be investigated further. Through a physical examination with direct observation, the doctor will be able to find out the source of the cause, so that appropriate treatment can be given to your child according to his basic condition.
In the meantime, here are some suggestions for what you can do:
If the skin rash feels itchy, you can use salicylic powder on the child's skin to relieve itching. If a child has a fever, fever-reducing drugs such as paracetamol can be given according to the recommended dose. Keep the child's skin clean. Bathe the child regularly and use mild soap. absorbs sweat well and not tight Change and wash children's clothes, towels, blankets and bed linen regularly Keep children's beds and toys clean
