Night doctor ,, safe fluocort n for babies 6 months affected by diaper rash and prickly heat ??

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Fluocort is an ointment containing fluocinolone (steroids) and neomycin (antibiotics). These drugs are included in the class of hard drugs that you should not use (let alone put on babies) without going through an examination from a doctor first. You should not buy this medicine without using a doctor's prescription. This drug is intended to treat inflammation of the skin caused by a bacterial infection. Diaper rash and prickly heat do not need to be treated with this drug.


Mild diaper rash generally occurs due to irritation of the skin due to urine or feces of babies who have long contact with the skin. Mild diaper rash can be treated by:

change diapers more often
applying diaper rash creams containing zinc oxide or applying petroleum jelly before using diapers

Severe diaper rash occurs due to fungal infections of the skin. If the diaper rash experienced by the child is very severe (occurs in a large area, looks reddish, wet, and causes the child to feel uncomfortable), immediately take the child to the doctor for proper treatment. Giving steroid medicine in this condition will make the rash worse.

Prickly heat occurs because the air is too hot for babies. This condition can also be overcome by:

adjust the temperature of the room to make it more comfortable for babies (like putting on air conditioners or fans in the baby's bedroom)
wear thin clothes and absorb sweat for the baby, change if the clothes are wet
You can apply lotion containing calamine to help reduce the itching on the baby's skin and make the baby feel more comfortable


So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
