seborrheic dermatitis - jumpe bomoh
bringing her 2 months old baby boy
complaining of rashes all over the body, worse at the scalp
( something like the photo above , just worse )
then i asked her...
" how long ago it started? why didnt u come earlier ..."
any doctor could realized it is already a chronic case..
the mother replied " about a month ago... the rashes started about a month ago "
"then.. why u didnt bring ur child earlier when it was still in early stage??? " i puzzled ..
" I did.. i brought her to see this traditional medicine people ... diorang dah tiup2 kepala anak... dah baca tu ni.. dah letak daun ni daun tu.... " she answered...
" then? why dont u continue ur treatment with them... might as well... ur baby is full of bacteria n fungal... God knows what the bomoh is doing.. adding more infection.... seriously???? u waited a month? ur baby has been suffering... it is painful.. it is itchy , u cant even spend a few hours in 30 days to bring ur baby to a doctor? this is ridiculous "
I was saddened to see that baby in that very bad condition
there are still mothers out there who believed that bomoh is the first choice of treatment
in this case the baby is in sepsis ... need to be admitted
if she comes earlier, the baby only require topical cream and some oral antibiotic
now there are pus discharge all over body
the baby needs iv antibiotic , need to be warded....
come on guys... dont blame fate on this issue
clearly the parent is at fault
the government already provided free clinic n medication..
nak salahkan takdir lagi ke????
