Wounds Like Scabs?
The presence of red bumps, pus, and some become scabs can be caused by many factors. Did your child have other symptoms before the bumps appeared, such as fever? Red bumps, pus, and sores can be caused by the following:
Impetigo Boils Chickenpox Atopic eczema Herpes zoster Roseola Prickly heat Scabies It should be noted that skin complaints cannot be confirmed only by description, but must be seen directly and if necessary additional examinations such as skin scraping tests, blood tests, and wound fluid tests to determine the cause . Therefore, I suggest that you check your child to the doctor first. The doctor will conduct an examination to determine the cause of your child's bumps and scabs and then provide maximum treatment according to the cause. Dangerous or not, of course, depends on the cause.
Some tips you can do:
Try not to scratch the child's bumps and scabs Cut the child's nails so they don't hurt the skin Do not rub the scabs Keep the child's body clean by bathing him twice a day, dry the child's body after bathing carefully, if the child has a fever, use warm water for bathing Avoid applying powder on the "wet" area of the bump Apply the doctor's prescribed ointment Give paracetamol if the child has a fever Wear comfortable and loose clothing on the child The following article relates to the topic of your question:
