The appearance of a reddish rash on the skin around the eyelids and cheeks can occur due to normal conditions, but it can also be due to certain diseases. Some of the possibilities that could trigger this complaint are:
Red nevi (red mole) A benign or malignant tumor, eg cherry angioma, hemangioma, melanoma milia (keratinization of the pilosebaceous glands) Skin infections, such as miliaria (prickly heat), folliculitis, baby acne Atopic dermatitis Irritant contact dermatitis or allergies Insect or animal bites other Blood clotting disorders, for example due to leukemia, hemophilia, ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) Other infections, such as dengue fever, scarlet fever, measles, chicken pox, etc. Can your child's current condition be confirmed by having your child checked? directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or skin specialist. Because, it is necessary to do a thorough clinical evaluation to evaluate the characteristics of the skin rash that appears as well as other accompanying complaints. In some cases, it may be that the doctor will perform additional examinations on your child, for example, blood tests, allergy tests, skin biopsy, and so on so that treatment can be done precisely.
In the meantime, you should not over-manipulate the rash that appears on your child's skin, including scratching, exfoliating, or giving careless treatment. Focus on keeping your child's skin clean and avoiding contact with irritating and allergenic substances. Give your child enough breast milk so that his immune system is well maintained and also minimizes the risk of allergies and inflammation of the skin.
Hope it helps ..
