How does rash occur?
The increase in temperature with the effect of the sun causes babies to sweat more frequently in the summer months. This can result in rash skin disease. Sweat glands are also adversely affected in extreme hot weather conditions. Sweat gland ducts can become clogged and therefore rash may occur. Rash presenting as small red lesions; often neck, shoulder, as well as different parts of the body can be seen.
What are the causes of rash?
· Neglecting the hygiene of the baby, not washing enough
· Diseases resulting in fever
· Hot weather
· Thick dressing of the child
· Excessive sweating is one of the main causes of rash.
How to treat rash?
Mild rashes tend to pass spontaneously without treatment. In order to accelerate the healing process in such rashes, keeping the baby cool, having a warm shower and using a humidifier will be enough. However, if inflammation of the skin has occurred, mild cortisone creams may be administered under doctor supervision to alleviate itching in such advanced rashes. Travazol creams may also be used in such rashes.
