The main manifestation of the disease, regardless of the patient's age, is the formation of purulent elements on the skin surface, which have a characteristic rounded shape and a flaky surface. Depending on the size of the pathological focus, their number and the area of distribution, clinical forms of the disease are distinguished.
Violation of the integrity of the skin (for the penetration of infection, microtrauma or abrasion is enough).
Change in local immunity.
Violation of the activity of the body's immune system as a whole.
The microorganism can enter the child's body through the contact-household route - the infection is transmitted through dishes, clothes, during household contacts, through toys, as well as through dust, which contains streptococci. In the hot season, the infection can be transmitted by insects, which carry pathogens on their paws.
The appearance on the surface of the skin of small bubbles filled with a transparent but quickly cloudy liquid - most often on the face, back, limbs, and lower body.
Itchy skin (unbearable burning sensation often occurs).
Pigmentation of the skin at the site of the "old" foci of the disease.
General malaise - impaired well-being, lethargy, weakness, lack of appetite.
Streptoderma can be easily confused with urticaria, atopic dermatitis, pityriasis versicolor, pyoderma and eczema, so don't self-medicate. To get timely treatment, contact a specialist for a quick diagnosis of the disease.
Observe the rules of personal hygiene.
Eat foods high in vitamins.
Get hardened, lead a healthy lifestyle.
In case of skin damage, even minor, thoroughly rinse and treat the wound. Distribute the load evenly, avoid stressful situations.
Drugs for therapy
Streptoderma in children is treated quite well and quickly if done correctly. It is a common mistake for parents to stop treatment as soon as signs of improvement appear. The course of treatment prescribed by the doctor must be completed without fail.
