How to distinguish sweat from allergies in infants
When there is a long-awaited replenishment in the family, most mothers immediately encounter difficult challenges. Care of the baby is not as simple as it seems, at first glance. Feeding, bathing, dressing all this must pass properly otherwise a different kind of rash may appear on the child’s body. Often, this is a sweating, but often inexperienced mothers confuse it with an allergic reaction.
In such situations there is only one question: How to distinguish a chicken from an allergy in a babe? .
Sweating is one of the most common types of dermatitis.
Most often, the problem arises from the parents’ improper parental care: they did not change the diaper in time, they dressed too warmly, forgot to ventilate the choking room. The skin of the newborn should always breathe, otherwise there is trouble in the form of a rash.
It is worth noting that a phenomenon such as sweating often overtakes newborn babies. Their tiny organism has not yet fully recovered and normalize thermoregulation, so the lack of basic hygiene norms contributes to the intensive development of this problem.
Allergic reaction is due to the fact that the human immune system, whose task to protect the body from dangerous bacteria of alien origin, gives a kind of failure. Immunity, when it comes to fulfilling its direct duties, exceeds authority, thereby destroying its own cells and manifests itself as a skin rash on the body of the child.
It is worth noting that it is not so difficult to distinguish a chalk from an allergic reaction. The only sign that combines these two diseases is a rash. And given the nature of the rash and the location of the localization, especially if the manifestation was on the face, the experienced Mom would certainly cope with this. However, for a more reliable answer it is better to consult with a specialist, because the parents' task is to protect the crumb from any danger, and self-treatment can harm the baby's health.
So, if the child has an allergy, and the parents, having thought that this is a simple sweating, will begin to observe all the rules concerning hygiene, then this will not give any result, but, on the contrary, will aggravate the situation.
Or, in the case of sweating, they will think about allergies and begin self-treatment with antihistamine drugs, which will also do little good for the children's organism.
