What is this disease?
As is clear from the name, sweating is directly related to sweating disorders. Normally sweat leaves through the sweat glands and evaporates, removing from the body some harmful substances: decay products, slags, toxins.
But if sweating is increased, sweat glands do not have time to cope with their task and are clogged up. A sweat and the harmful substances contained in it, begin to affect the skin, causing it to irritate.
Most often there is a sweating in children, the treatment of it is very worried about the parents, because the baby experiences discomfort. But in adults, such a disease can also develop, but much less often. The disease is absolutely not contagious and not dangerous.
There are several types of sweats:
In the photo you can find a lot of bubbles filled with transparent liquid and located next to each other. This form is the easiest. Most often, this sweat occurs in a newborn or child of the first year of life.
It is characterized by rashes of red color( in the photo it looks like red spots), localized in particular on the folds. On the spot spots in the future may form sore sores.
This is the most complex form, which is most often caused by a sharp change in climate( for example, when traveling to hot countries).
We list the main causes of sweating:
- increased sweating in adults( hyperhidrosis);
- clothes, picked up not by weather( for example, some mothers literally wrap up their children);
- tight clothing;
- clothing made of synthetic non-breathable fabrics;
- increased physical activity;
- systematic body overheating.
The main and almost unique symptom of sweating is a rash on the body, which are clearly visible in the photo. Such a rash can look like numerous bubbles or redness. In severe cases, sores appear on the site of the rash, and then the crusts.
In addition, itching may occur, which causes severe discomfort, especially to children. If the child or adult begins to scratch the lesions, the risk of infection is increased. And in case of infection, abscesses may appear.
Localized rashes are most often in places with tender skin and in areas of the body that are prone to constant friction or under clothing.
Most often, sweat affects the armpits, neck, folds of the legs and arms, buttocks, back, crotch area, folds under the breasts in women, and also the areas between the fingers.
How to treat?
How is the treatment of sweating in adults and children treated?
Here are the main possible measures:
- First of all, you need to avoid overheating. Air a room more often, take aerial baths. Choose natural clothes from breathable fabrics and select it according to the weather or the temperature of the air in the room. Toddlers are not recommended to be bothered. In addition, try to use diapers less often.
- Also observe the rules of personal hygiene. Regularly take a shower( during hot time it is better to do this in the evening and in the morning).Baby, too, must necessarily bathe daily.
- You can use pharmacy or folk remedies. So, dry the bubbles will help a solution of potassium permanganate( you can wipe the affected areas or add to the bath), zinc paste, various talcum powder. Adults can use 1% solution of salicylic alcohol. Toddlers are best treated with folk remedies. The broths of chamomile, turns and oak bark are good.
- If infection occurs, and bacteria have penetrated the skin through the damaged vesicles, the doctor can prescribe antibiotics.
- If the sweating in an adult is due to hyperhidrosis, the specialist may prescribe reflexotherapy or physiotherapy. Also, there are all kinds of drugs that reduce sweating. In severe cases, surgical intervention is indicated, involving removal of nerve endings connected to sweat glands.
To prevent sweating, avoid overheating, wear suitable clothes from natural fabrics and observe personal hygiene rules. Let the skin be healthy and clean!
