Traditional Chinese medicine umbilical washing for infant eczema
Eczema in infants and young children is a common disease in dermatology clinics, commonly known as “milk ringworm”, which easily recurs, has certain genetic factors, and parents of children often have a history of allergies.
Not only should infant eczema be treated promptly, but daily care is also important.
Traditional Chinese medicine has a better effect in treating eczema, but oral medicine is more difficult for infants and young children, while the umbilical epidermal stratum corneum is relatively thin, and externally applied drugs are easy to absorb. Therefore, the use of traditional Chinese medicine for umbilical eczema in infants and young children is better.
While applying the umbilical cord, external medicine can also be added according to the skin lesions.
When the eczema skin gets out of water, and is erosive or red, you can wash it with traditional Chinese medicine decoction.
Recommend a washing recipe: dandelion, wild chrysanthemum, white fresh skin 30 grams each, 20 grams of a hundred.
Add 2000ml of water to the above Chinese medicine, soak for 15 minutes, and then boil for 15 minutes.
When the medicinal solution is cool, take a clean gauze (four or five layers thick) and soak it in the medicinal solution, and then apply it on the affected area for about 15 minutes, twice a day.
If the area of eczema is large, you can also use the medicated bath method.
After the permeate and erosion have disappeared, you can rub it with the mother (Qishenlian Ointment), Yodr and other creams.
Hazardous clothing is one of the causes of recurrence of eczema in infants.
Children with eczema should wear loose and large cotton fabrics or soft fabrics. Do not wear chemical fiber fabrics. Wool fabrics should be avoided on the inside and outside.
Attention should be paid to observe that children are allergic to certain foods. Common allergic foods are milk, eggs, fish, shrimp, etc. Mothers should also avoid eating foods that are susceptible to allergies when breastfeeding.
Alkaline soaps, cosmetics, and perfumes are also prone to irritate the delicate skin of infants and young children, so they should be avoided.
The mother has poor skin contact with the child, so try to use these cosmetics less.
It is not advisable to transplant BCG or other vaccines during the onset of the disease, and transplantation should be performed after the symptoms disappear.
