Appears As A Raised Line On The Forehead Of A 6 Month Baby?
My child is only 6 months old, I want to ask in the middle. “My child’s forehead has a straight horizontal line like an embossed line, that’s why, should I be worried or what?
Hi Fitri .. Thank you for the question given.
Lines that appear on your child's forehead can occur due to several things, for example:
The result of repeated and long-term pressure
Scars / connective tissue lesions
Atopic dermatitis / eczema
To find out other possible causes for your child, it is necessary to do an examination directly by a doctor. Therefore, if the horizontal line on the forehead of your child persists, is getting wider, red, dry, and the child feels itchy, then you can have your child checked by a pediatrician. Meanwhile, what can be confirmed is:
Avoid touching or rubbing the forehead excessively
If the child uses a hat, avoid the hat that is too tight and presses on the forehead area
Keep the child's skin clean
Avoid using irritating powders or lotions
