Need some advice…Friend is coming to KL from Singapore for a week to bring her son to seek treatment somewhere in Setapak. He has some skin condition psoriasis. Cause covid so I feel its safer for them to stay at my place then stay in the hotel and grab bac and forth. Im a stay home mom and would like to help best that I can…ive just got some concern , ive read that the skin condition doesn’t infect others, not contagious but at the same time im worried as well…do I have to be concern on the towel and mattress? Can I like pass one of our towels and then when they leave just change and wash the sheets will that be sufficient? Im not comfortable asking her this, she might think that im not alright with it, im just abit worried also for my kids but Im okie with sorting it out like mayb can get those foldable thin mattress and shop towels but will it be necessary?

Hi. It must be a very hard time for your friend. I think you should prepare something extra safe for them and for you. The clean towel and suitable mattress or bedsheet will help to sooth and ease them. Or maybe using a one-time-use or disposable linen.

It's not contagious but u still can take prevention by regularly cleaning or sanitize surface using anti-bac spray or wash or wipe like dettol. maybe regularly vacuum too.

If you worried bout yr mattress get contaminated, use disposable bedsheet / put mattress cover under the bedsheet. u can also use dust-free / mite-free vacuum that suck up all nano germs and dead skin. u can google bout the vacuum. these are my ways of prevention bcs 1 of my kid once got skin problem so to protect others that's the best I could do.

I am using care service from coway. my mattress isn't their brand but they'll eventually attend. they did not clean the stain etc2 but they do deep cleaning to remove dust and suck away mites that mostly causing skin irritation and such problems. https://www.instagram.com/p/CccsPkJBl9Z/ take a look at this link.

that's totally true. I own 3 air filters from coway ( 1 at the hall, 2 in my kids rooms ). eventho I have my own dust/mite vacuum, I regularly call coway for their mattress care service eventho I don't use their mattress. you may wanna see this is how they deep cleaning the mattress.

Just regularly clean ur mattress.. dats basically where all the germs and mites stays. I've read comments above saying use anti-mite vacuum etc but I don't think so we could get rid most of it. u can get the mattress care service from coway even are not using their mattress. no matter what brand are using. let them take care of ur mattress. Im using other company services too but I prefer coway the most.

Rose, my opinion, u don't need that vacuum bcs we couldn't get our mattress realllyyy clean as it is. let coway do their job and help you save ur energy and cost effective too. take a look at how much they suck away the dust and dirt in the mattress. I know its in Chinese but just watch the video how they do it.

my thoughts are always on the mattress. sometimes changing linen is not helping bcs mites could go up thru linen. previously I changed my bedsheet almost every two days but that doesn't solve my daughter's eczema. I tried coway mattress care service, my daughter's eczema is started to slow down and almost gone now.
