Causes And Ways To Deal With Blackened Lips?
I’m Yeni, 24 years old. And I have a 1.5 month old baby. But my child’s lips are bluish black on the top and bottom. Even though before it did not appear black. What is the cause and how is the treatment? thank you
Good morning Yeni, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Blackened baby's lips can be a condition that needs special treatment, called cyanosis. Cyanosis is a condition where oxygen carried in the blood vessels is not enough, even though we know how important oxygen is to life and the survival of tissues in the body.
There are various possible causes of cyanosis, including;
Congenital heart disease
Severe allergic response
Whatever it is, because there is potential that what your child is experiencing is an emergency, we suggest that you immediately clarify it by taking it to the nearest pediatrician. Because there isn't much handling you can do independently. Keep him away from pollution, dust and cigarette smoke, keep him warm, and if he shows symptoms that are quite alarming such as shortness of breath, appearing weak, his breathing looks fast and deep or something, don't hesitate to take him to the nearest hospital emergency room.
