What Are The Remedies For Splotches On Feet And Hands?
Hello. I am a housewife and I have a child aged 7 years, my child has been sick for one week suddenly I found spots on his feet and hands, why is that?
Hello Mrs. Fitria,
Baby's skin has a very wide range of causes. The causes include:
Viral infections, for example HFMD (Singapore flu), smallpox, measles, roseola, rubella, etc. Insect bites Allergic or irritant contact dermatitis Atopic dermatitis Urticaria / hives prickly heat Bacterial, fungal or mite infections (scabies)
Because the causes are so many, it needs a direct examination to find out. If preceded by fever, it is usually a viral infection. If you have not taken your child to the doctor, you should take your child to the doctor as they have been sick for one week. If so, you should still continue treatment. If there are symptoms such as fever rising to more than 39 degrees Celsius, the child is weak, no appetite, diarrhea or vomiting, you should immediately be taken to the nearest emergency room.
Monitor your child's temperature regularly, keep their skin clean, give them a healthy, balanced diet and let it rest.
