A Small Hole Above The Waist That Has Existed Since Birth?
I want to ask the doctor for instructions, my child aged 5 months has a congenital abnormality, which is a small hole in the waist, right above the hips a little, this was only known at the age of two months, so far okay, but now the small hole is issued a little pus and body heat has been going on this one week. To what part of the doctor should I have my child checked? Please help, thank you
Hi Abu Rizal,
A small opening over the waist that has existed since birth can be:
Aplasia cutis congenita, a congenital oblivion is born where the kukita and the underlying tissue are not fully developed so the area is not covered. Focal dermal hypoplasia bullous Epidermolysis syndrome Please consult this matter further with your pediatrician, to find out more clearly the diagnosis and treatment needed.
If at this time the hole is pus releasing, then there may be an infection and requires special treatment.
Keep the area always sterile, clean Avoid rubbing against disposable diapers because they can cause irritation Keep the holes dry Dry Bring to see your pediatrician Hopefully you can help.
