Skin breakage usually heals slowly, easily leading to bacterial infection and exacerbating the condition. Older children have a certain degree of self-control. Parents should explain to them the serious consequences of scratching their skin and persuade them not to scratch their fingernails at will. Use palms or the back of the hand to gently rub the itch; for younger children, it is recommended that parents regularly trim their children's nails or wear gloves. If it is really hard to bear, parents can help their children properly touch their skin to reduce itching. You can also find some children interested in games or toys to pert their attention.
