Karappan refers to a spectrum of skin disorders that commonly affect children. These conditions can include rashes, eczema, allergic reactions, infections, and other inflammatory skin conditions. Children have delicate and sensitive skin, making them more prone to these issues. Ayurveda recognizes that imbalances in doshas, improper diet, poor hygiene, and environmental factors can contribute to the development of skin disorders in children.
At our Ayurvedic hospital, we understand the unique challenges faced by children with skin disorders and offer gentle, natural, and safe treatment options to restore their skin health.
Common Skin Disorders in Children: Some of the common skin disorders seen in children include:
Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema): This chronic condition is characterized by itchy, red, and inflamed patches on the skin. Eczema can be triggered by allergens, irritants, and environmental factors.
Diaper Rash: Diaper rash is a common skin irritation that occurs in the diaper area due to prolonged contact with urine and feces, friction, and lack of proper hygiene.
Allergic Reactions: Children may develop allergic reactions to certain foods, medications, insect bites, or environmental allergens. These reactions can cause itching, rashes, hives, and swelling.
Prickly Heat: Prickly heat, also known as miliaria, is a common rash that occurs in hot and humid weather. It is caused by blocked sweat glands, leading to small, itchy, and red bumps on the skin.
Impetigo: Impetigo is a highly contagious bacterial skin infection characterized by red sores that rupture and form yellowish-brown crusts. It commonly occurs in children, especially in warm and humid conditions.
