Baby’s Lips Are Often Dry And Peeling 2 Months Old?
I want to ask, my child’s lips are always dry and peeling endlessly. When it is dry when peeling it will peel, after that it will dry again and peel again. Is that normal?

For babies aged 0-2 months, your baby's main intake is generally breast milk, so it is necessary to evaluate the type of mother's food if your baby has comorbid complaints. The complaints of your baby's lips which often peel off may be related to an allergy to the protein that enters the body through breast milk. This can happen especially if in your family or your husband you have one family member with an allergy. So that the possibility of certain allergies can be experienced by your baby.
The possibility of allergies can cause irritation to your baby's lip area and the mouth cavity and digestive tract. Inflammation, redness or swelling in the lip area can also be a symptom that accompanies the skin which often exfoliates. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding, you should avoid consuming seafood first to be able to do a direct evaluation of your baby's complaint response. Or the possibility of consumption of certain foods that might increase the risk of allergies. However, all of this needs to be done with your child's doctor's supervision.
Apart from the possibility of allergies, several other medical conditions can also trigger complaints that are almost the same, such as:
2. dry air
3. excess vitamin A
4. Kawasaki disease
To help with the initial treatment, giving organic lip balm or a safe moisturizer is expected to help prevent repeated exfoliation, such as nipple cream, coconut oil, lanolin cream.
In addition, because this condition has begun to interfere and has not given signs of improvement and healing, then you should immediately consult with your pediatrician, the doctor will conduct an interview related to the course of this complaint. Physical examination and supporting examination will be carried out to help ascertain the cause. The results of the examination will be a reference for care and treatment for your child.
