Doc my sister’s new baby 6 days but experience such swelling as pimples on her body and festering like that, the cause and how to handle it

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question


The symptoms you mentioned above may be a condition of baby acne. Baby acne is a common condition which can appear on the baby's face and body area. Skin symptoms include small reddish or white nodules. In most cases baby acne does not require special treatment and can recover spontaneously.


Acne usually occurs at the age of 2-4 weeks where symptoms can persist for several weeks. The cause is not yet known exactly but it is possible due to the mother or baby's hormones themselves. Do not use any cream on these skin disorders because the baby's skin is still very sensitive. The act of providing topical treatment can actually exacerbate existing complaints.


Some things that can be done to alleviate the condition include:


1. Routinely clean your face with a towel and warm water
2. Avoid using creams or lotions on the face area
3. Don't use soap products and the like that contain detergents and fragrances
4. Don't squeeze baby zits
5. Be patient because most symptoms will spontaneously recover


That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
