Child having skin problem and dandruff. What to do? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
i hve pediatric query
my daughter is 3 years old, all the time she has some or other skin problem
very recently i noticed that she is facing huge problem with dandruff
what can i do for this problem
to take care of the dandruff issue
if she also has itching and redness
it suggest that there may be inflammatory reactions to the dandruff / infection
Nizoral shampoo is definitely good to use for dandruff issue.
irrespective of ages right ?
But if there is significant itching and if there is redness and other physical changes on the scalp
then I suggest you to take her to a dermatologist
and get her examined.
If there are inflammatory changes, it may need other treatment also.
no redness, itchness becos of that white flakes and formed it as patches on the scalp
only itching is bothhering her
If it is not red and has no physical changes, then you can use nizoral shampoo.
initially shall i use that nizoral shampoo?
Use the shampoo to rub her scalp and not clean hair.
That is the most effective way to use nizoral
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query?
we have to rub the shampoo on the scalp and after that we can wash with water na
I mean, the shampoo is more effective only when you rub the shampoo on the scalp and not hair.
ok ok got it
Yes, you can rub the scalp for 10 - 15 minutes and wash hair.
Do you have any other question?
she is suffering one more problem, below the ear it seems like a small cut and lite water kind of puss
with that she has burning sensation also
if we apply boro plus cream then its becuming less...one or 2 days if we r nt applying that then again its getting started
u got the point wat exactly i am teling and which part the problem is
It looks like there is an infective foci there..
only for one ear that too
Without an opportunity to examine the area, I am unable to give you a clear diagnosis/possibility.
becos of this problem i removed her ear rings also
ok...my kid is hvng all skin related problems only....
apart from these everything is fine and active
Since the problem is recurring, it needs to be evaluated.
It may be a lesion which is getting infected
or related to her dandruff issue too.
will there any internal disorders for these skin problems?
As I mentioned earlier, dandruff can cause inflammatory changes which can over a period of time get secondary infected.
I am sorry, without an opportunity to examine the area
I am unable to answer question about what might this lesion be
initially i wil use that shampoo as suggested..let me see the results first then i wil proceed further
or if is related to an internal problem
However it is generally a local problem not a systemic condition.
anyway thanks for you advices
Do you have any other question?
Are you there?
Do you have any more questions?
i dont hve any other query, thanks for your suggestion
Thanks for consulting me.'
Bye for now.
