The Appearance of Red Bumps on the Body in Children
Usually, when children become sick, parents are worried that their child might have a disease, but in most cases, the symptoms are not serious. Red bumps on the body in children are one of these symptoms. You need to know what these red bumps are so you can take care of your child.
What are red bumps?
Red bumps appear suddenly and the skin around reddened areas becomes inflamed or swollen too. These types of spots may be accompanied by an itching feeling. We say that there is an infection present in the area where red spots live.
Therefore it’s very likely that if this condition appears, then your kids will feel uncomfortable due to pain caused by this condition called “red bumps”. This condition usually occurs when the skin is exposed to weak injuries like falling on the floor, scratching, or even insects biting.
This condition is very common in children, especially those who are around the age of 1-year-old. The immune system of babies isn’t fully developed yet so they can easily get sick. When red bumps appear on babies, it’s usually caused by eczema, hives, and dermatitis. This disease often occurs due to an allergic reaction that your baby experienced at first contact with something that he/she was not previously exposed to before.
What should you do?
The best way for parents to help their child heal faster than expected is by recognizing what this disease is all about. Red bumps appear suddenly without any preliminary signs or symptoms.
Therefore it’s very likely for you to panic and immediately rushes your child to the hospital without knowing what the real cause of this condition is. The doctor will ask you about the symptoms, health history, and other details related to your family so they can diagnose what the condition is all about.
Several conditions may cause red bumps in children, but there are also home remedies available for these kinds of problems. Using natural ingredients that have been proven safe not only for babies but also for adults can help in healing fast from this type of disease or lesions.
Parents should make sure their child gets enough rest and avoid stressful situations as much as possible since stress causes skin irritation too. Children with eczema must be made aware by their parents of the factors that might trigger skin outbreaks. By controlling their contact with these factors you will have a better chance of preventing this condition from occurring.
The child has itchy red bumps:
Two months ago, little Bobby and his mother moved into a new house in the suburbs of Denver. Very quickly after moving in, three-year-old Bobby started complaining that something was “biting” him while he slept. He would wake up with bloody scratches all over his body and bits of skin gouged out from his face and legs. There were no signs of any insects or animals around their home.
when to worry about a rash on a toddler:
Doctors ran tests and found nothing. They couldn’t figure out what was causing the scratching or the rash. Since no insects were seen, they assumed that Bobby must have been dreaming about animals while he slept and scratched at his dreams.
The scratching continued, but after a week went by with no new injuries on the body, the doctors had nearly forgotten the bizarre case of little Bobby and his nightmares. That’s when things got strange: One morning his mother found large chunks of skin gouged from around Bobby’s eyes and lips. Like before, there were no signs of anything near him… except for one thing: The bites appeared to be clustered directly in front of where his face lay on the pillow.
After numerous tests again turned up no results, the doctors concluded that Bobby was probably dreaming about bugs attacking him. At this point, it seemed like his mother was both embarrassed and annoyed with her son’s vivid imagination. She tried sleeping next to him at night for a few nights, but she never saw any bugs or experienced anything unusual herself.
Bumps on toddler skin:
Finally, after over a month of finding deep bites in the morning that turned up negative test results for everything from rabies to hantavirus, one doctor had an idea. He instructed Bobby’s mother to take pictures of anything unusual around his bed at night before she woke him up. After several nights’ worth of photos, she picked out six pictures where what appeared to be small humanoid creatures could be seen lurking next to her son’s head or near his hand on the pillow.
The two most effective home remedies for these types of viruses are:
Banana peels have been proven to be very efficient in treating red bumps in kids because it has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce allergic reactions and inflammation caused by the disease itself. In addition, banana peels also contain a high level of potassium which is essential for skin regeneration.
The potassium penetrates the skin cells while stimulating their growth which results in fading away red bumps from your child’s skin. Simply rub some pieces of ripe bananas on the affected area and let it sit for 10 minutes before washing it with cold water or applying some ice cubes wrapped with clean cloths over the affected area.
For children under 3 years old, mix 1tbsp of apple cider vinegar with 1 tsp of honey for relief from the redness and itching. Mix well until the mixture becomes smooth. Then gently apply this mixture to your toddler’s face after diluting it with water, you can also use a cotton ball or gauze strip to do so.
Coconut oil contains anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties which make it an excellent remedy for yeast infections in kids caused by fungus-like yeast. Since it is highly moisturizing you can rub some on your child’s feet every night before bed to stimulate their immune system while making them feel better at the same time.
