Black Patches On The Lower Lip Of A 1 Month Old Baby?
Doctor, my child is now exactly 1 month and 4 days old. There is a black spot on my child’s lower lip but not too black. I didn’t pay much attention to when this spot appeared. Is this dangerous? thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Baby's lips that look black, can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Effects of breastfeeding and active breastfeeding infants Allergy to certain substances Lack of body fluids or dehydration Heart and lung disorders
The most dangerous of the above possibilities is the existence of a disruption in the heart and lungs which is called cyanosis. Because it may be difficult for ordinary people to distinguish this condition, our advice is that you should continue to take your child to the pediatrician for further examination of the condition of the lungs and heart. If it is declared normal, then if there are no symptoms in your baby, you do not need to worry too much about his condition first and wait until he reaches 6-7 months of age. If the black spots persist, have your child checked again for further examination.
For the time being, pay attention to the adequacy of fluids, gain weight, and if he appears crowded, coughing, or spreading blackish, especially when crying, do not panic and immediately take him to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
