Skin Problems in Children
Children’s skin is thinner than adults’ skin, making it more sensitive to exterior stimulation. Children also tend to sweat more, allowing bacteria and viruses to spread and cause infectious diseases.

An inflammation to the part of the skin that comes in direct contact with a diaper, showing redness and rashes. Symptoms appear when the ammonia from urine and feces or the fiber from the diaper brush against the skin. It is important to maintain hygiene by washing the dirty areas properly.
Candida Skin Infection

It is similar to a diaper rash, but when condition gets bad, sores may appear or the skin may peel. Symptoms may get worse with over-the-counter drugs, so please consult a doctor as soon as possible.
Heat Rash / Multiple Sweat Gland Abscesses
A heat rash is caused when sweat cannot be secreted due to pores that are clogged with dirt or scurf. If the child scratches too much and if the cuts get infected with staphylococcus, an inflammation otherwise known as multiple sweat gland abscesses may occur. This is a suppurative inflammation, causing pain and sometimes a fever.
Inflammation caused when a heat rash or bug bite is scratched too much causing cuts in the skin which then get infected with staphylococcus aureus or streptococcus.
