Suggest treatment for allergic mosquito bite on skin - Online Doctor Chats
I am XXXX Please proceed with your query
I have a query about my 6 year old daughter
initially she seemed to have mosquito bites on her body
which started increasing in numbers
when we took her to the peadatrician, he gave atarax
it reduced as long as she took the meds but started getting itchy after meds were stopped
the doc then sent us to a skin specialist
Can we continue to give Allegra for few more days.. and apply the ointment for few more days.... so that the remaining bites also go away?
I think the bites will go away now
or is it harmful to continue to give allegra / apply ointment for more duration than prescribed
Even if you do not give the medicine
Allegra can cause drowsiness
so it should be given in moderation
but she gets itchy without meds
wud only ointment suffice in that case?
How long have you been using ointment on her
for 10 days now
IT should not be used for more than 10 days
2 times a day
The reason is that it can cause skin thinning
so shd i just leave it as is for now... and monitor for next few days?
But if the rash is on thin skin like face we have to be more careful
ok.. it is only on torso and limbs
It can be reduced to once a day
may be 4 to 5 days like this?
Also take the opinion of your treating doctor
sure doctor... let me check this for few more days.. 1 time a day
will check his opinion if this doesnt reduce
thanks a lot
Thanks for coming on chat
