Blackish Bumps And Dries On The Skin Of Infants Aged 4 Months?
Greetings, I want to ask, my baby is only 4 months old, has 1 small bump on his skin, then dries and turns black, after 2 weeks his black bumps are getting more and more piled up at certain points, for example in the hands of his many bumps. What are the causes and types of diseases? And how is the handling method?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The bumps which then dry up and turn black on the baby's skin may be caused by the following conditions:
Skin infections, for example due to chickenpox (varicella), impetigo, scabies (scabies), miliaria (prickly heat), folliculitis (hair root infection) Contact dermatitis, for example due to contact with soap, powder, or certain skin products Other Inflammation of the skin due to other factors, for example atopic dermatitis, drug eruption, etc. You need to see your baby directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist so that it is clear what triggers the complaint. Often, this condition is not dangerous. However, if you do not get the right treatment, it is feared that the complaint will spread or spread to other people around your baby. Early treatment can help your baby avoid more severe conditions.
In the meantime, first try the following steps:
Do not slough off or squeeze the bump on the baby's skin Do not give ointments or any care carelessly on the baby's skin Regularly bathe the baby in the morning and evening with special baby bathing products Wear baby clothes that are clean and made from soft materials Don't panic Feed your baby exclusive breastfeeding for durability his body is always awake Keep the environment around the baby so that it is always clean Hope it helps huh ..
