Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Watery rash that feels itchy can be caused by many reasons, ranging from infection, irritation, allergies, and so on.
Singapore flu (hand-foot-and mouth disease) occurs due to infection with the Coxsackievirus virus, which is usually transmitted from sufferers through droplets of saliva that come out when the patient sneezes, coughs, or spits carelessly. It could also be, transmission occurs indirectly as a result of shaking hands with the hands of an infected person. Singapore flu symptoms can appear in varying degrees, ranging from mild to severe. Generally, this disease will make the child experience fever, sore throat, weakness, a reddish rash that feels painful and blistered in the oral cavity, a reddish rash such as blisters in the hands and feet, restlessness, decreased appetite, and so on. Usually, the rash that appears on the feet and hands due to the Singapore flu doesn't cause a particularly annoying itching sensation. Not only that, with a good immune system, it is very rare for this disease to last for months as happened to your child.
Judging from the information you conveyed, it is likely that the condition that happened to your child arose due to other causes, for example:
Atopic dermatitis (chronic inflammation of the skin due to atopic tendencies, commonly seen in people with asthma or allergic rhinitis)
Insect or other animal bites
Contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin as a result of contact with an irritating or allergenic substance)
Scabies (scabies, infection with the mite Sarcoptes scabeii)
Chickenpox (varicella, Varicella zoster virus infection)
Cutaneous Candidiasis (yeast infection)
Allergies, and so on
You should check your child directly to a doctor, dermatologist, or pediatrician so that they can be further evaluated for their condition. Usually, with a regular physical examination, the doctor can identify the cause of the complaint on the skin. Also, doctors recommend further examinations, such as allergy tests or blood tests, so that the cause of your child's complaint can be known for the best treatment.
Currently, you can first do the following tips:
Tell your child not to scratch, peel, or squeeze a rash that appears randomly
Bathe your child morning and evening with an antiseptic soap containing sulfur
Give your child soft, cool clothing, such as cotton
Sprinkle salicyl powder on the body where the rash is growing so that the itching subsides
Avoid children from exchanging clothes, towels, or other personal items with other people
Give the child enough to drink
Also give him healthy and nutritious food
Avoid the child from coming into contact with substances that may make him allergic or irritated
