Can Kalcinol Be Used For Baby Acne?
mlm. I’m newmom. my child is only 1 month. a little pimple on the face “can it be on ointment kalcinol?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Kalcinol is an ointment that contains antibiotics (Neomycin sulfate) and steroids (Flucinolone). This drug is classified as a strong drug that should not be used before checking with a doctor first (especially in infants), and you should also not be allowed to buy without a prescription from a doctor. This drug is given to treat inflammation caused by bacterial infections of the skin.
Baby acne can occur due to the influence of hormones from the mother in the womb. This condition is completely harmless, does not cause any symptoms that disturb the baby, and does not require any therapy because it will go away on its own in a few weeks to several months. The following are some things you can do:
Clean the baby's face every day with water and baby soap that is soft and fragrance free
Avoid using baby lotions that contain fragrances and contain lots of oil in them (baby oil should also not be used)
Avoid rubbing the baby's skin with a rough towel, just rub gently with your hands
Avoid squeezing baby zits
Avoid using products that contain active ingredients that are hard for baby's skin (the medicine you want to use includes)
If the baby's acne looks very much (to meet the face and body of the baby), the baby looks uncomfortable and constantly rubs his skin with his hands until it hurts, consult your baby to the pediatrician for further treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
