Do not scratch
Try to prevent your child from scratching. Scratching only makes the itching worse. In addition, it can cause infections and scars. Therefore, keep your child’s nails clean and short. In case of a lot of itching, you can dab your child’s skin with vinegar water or lemon water. Or put some ice cubes in a washcloth and gently dab it over the blisters, this can temporarily relieve the itching.
Food and drink
Does your little one also have blisters in his or her mouth? Then it may be that the appetite decreases. Do not force food on your child, but make sure that your child gets enough fluids. A cool drink or a pop of water can provide relief.
Lubricating with zinc ointment , menthol gel or carbomer water gel reduces itching and ensures that the blisters dry out faster. You can simply buy zinc ointment and menthol gel at the drugstore. Carbomer water gel is available at pharmacies without a prescription.
An oatmeal bath can also help reduce itching. Fill a washcloth with oatmeal and tie it off with a rubber band. Run a bath and put the washcloth in the water. The water then turns milky white.
Dress your child in light and spacious clothing so that the skin can breathe. Clothing that is too tight can contaminate and infect the skin. Is your child still young? Then change the diaper regularly.
