Hello, Widyaa. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
First of all, we need to ask a few questions regarding your complaint. Since when do itchy complaints occur? Where does the itchy complaint feel? Are there any complaints of rashes on the skin, such as redness or brunts? Has your child experienced similar complaints before?
Symptoms of itchy skin accompanied by a rash on the skin in the form of redness or brunts caused by several possibilities, which often include, among others:
Hypersensitivity to insect bites
Allergic contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to contact with material attached to the skin, is related to the process of forming the body's immunity to allergenic substances [for example: latex, marine animal protein, plant pollen]), symptoms usually arise after repeated exposure to allergenic substances
Irritant contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to contact with material attached to the skin, is not related to the process of immune formation so that complaints can arise immediately upon initial exposure to irritative substances [detergents, soaps, chemicals, etc.])
Atopic dermatitis, which is chronic and recurrent skin inflammation, is associated with a history of atopy (allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis) in patients / families
You are advised to have your child checked by a doctor or dermatologist for anamnesis, physical examination, and support (if there are indications, for example: a skin check for allergic testing) so that the underlying disease can be identified and appropriate treatment is given. Your doctor may prescribe ointments / creams, and oral medication to relieve itching.
At home, patients are advised to minimize exposure to substances that are suspected of triggering itching complaints, use softer (relatively non-irritating) soaps such as baby soap, and eat balanced nutritious foods.
