Congratulations mlm ‘my child is 2 years old 2 weeks more minor blisters due to the habit of running in the house and falling early scratched the hands but no more than 2 weeks. The wounds got bigger and sometimes there was pus we had given Betadine medication but it widened but it widened and blush. And there are very few sores in other parts that are difficult to dry, blushing and inflamed even in small wounds which are usually dry in 2 days. I want to ask this is normal or there is a problem on my child’s skin, thank you …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Wounds that are superficial in depth, are small in size, and are well cared for are usually able to heal in a short time without leaving a serious sequelae. The condition of your child, who often experiences wounds that do not heal, to the extent that they are widespread, inflamed, and festering may indicate the following factors:
Poor wound care, including the result of suboptimal personal hygiene
Certain skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, rosacea
Impaired immune system, for example due to malnutrition, consumption of long-term immune system suppressants, HIV
Bleeding disorders, for example due to hemophilia, leukemia, and so on
If these complaints are repeated very often, it would not hurt you to bring your child to see a doctor or a pediatrician for a more in-depth evaluation. That way, the doctor can give him the best management in accordance with the conditions that underlie his complaints.
Here are our initial suggestions:
More intense looking after children, do not let children play alone without adult supervision
Place dangerous objects out of the reach of children
Let the child play in a safe and comfortable place, if necessary, use a special mat that is not too hard but not too soft
If the child has an injury, take good care of hygiene, including bathing, cleaning it regularly, and not carelessly handling the aluka pad
Give your child healthy and nutritious food
Hope this helps ...
