Using medicine

o   When it has papules or discharge pus, you can apply color liquid drugs which are light antiseptic such as: Milian, Eosin…

o   When the skin is dry, red and exfoliated, you can use creams with low concentration of corticosteroid such as Eumvat in short term (7 – 10 days)

o   When the skin is dry and there are many hair follicles, you can use salve containing corticosteroid or combine with eliminating follicle ingredient like salicylic acid.

o   Not recommended immunization for your baby, especially when smallpox vaccination can cause pustule diseases as chickenpox. At this time, children may have high fever, papules, blisters, etc…

o   Do not use high dose of antibiotics to treat eczema, unless in case of multiple infections but you must be careful as it is likely to cause anaphylaxis due to drugs.

Applying it for a long time may cause side effects such as fungal infection, skin atrophy, loss of skin color.
