Widened Small Watery Spots That Are Contagious In Children For 2 Months?
Tonight, I want to ask. My bank is 10 years old. My hands, body, feet appear small and watery spots. This has happened for more than 2 months. I have brought it to the doctor 2x, my husband and I were infected. I also went to the doctor. 2x also, but it won’t heal. I am confused about what medicine to take to get better. Thank you …
Hello Desi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Small spots that appear all over the body that can be contagious are likely caused by an infection. Infection can occur due to bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. Infections that last for months, like your child's, may be caused by a yeast infection or a parasitic infection such as scabies. Yeast infection is usually localized (does not spread throughout the body), therefore if you look at the history you mention, it is possible that your family has a scabies infection / scabies.
Scabies itching occurs more often at night. Reddish spots on scabies usually appear mainly in the skin fold areas such as between the fingers and toes, inner wrists, armpits, elbow creases, groin, around the anus, etc. This infection is highly contagious, especially in people who live in one house and sleep in one bed. However, to ascertain whether the red and itchy spots that your family is experiencing are indeed caused by scabies or something else, it is better for your family to consult directly with a dermatologist. A dermatologist can perform an examination such as a skin scrape to see if these parasites are in the skin.
If indeed what your family is experiencing is a scabies infection, then the treatment is giving anti-scabies cream. This cream should be applied all over the body from the neck down and left on for at least 8 hours (usually left overnight), then the stone can then be washed off. Treatment must be carried out jointly for people living in the house, and before treatment begins, items that can be washed (clothes, towels, bed linen, etc.) must be washed in hot water, while other items that cannot be used washed (mattress, sofa), must be tightly wrapped in plastic and not used for several weeks.
