Treatment of diathesis in babies
If there are rough spots on the body of a child, Dr. Komarovsky recommends considering their appearance as an abnormality in development, the essence of which lies in the baby's susceptibility to diseases or inappropriate response to food and other irritants.
After the doctor has determined the cause of the disease, it is necessary to proceed promptly to the treatment process, which has a complex character. If the cause is allergic dermatitis, immediately eliminate any contact with the allergen.
In the heating seasons to maintain optimum humidity in the room, use industrial or natural air humidifiers. As it gets warm, the air becomes dry and intensely affects the baby’s skin, making it more susceptible to viruses and bacteria.
Dress the baby should be so that his skin can "breathe", preferably in cotton. All washing products use only hypoallergenic. Often walk with a baby in the fresh air, away from the roads. If the reason is nutrition, you should review the regime and diet.
