Causes Baby’s Itchy Facial Skin Accompanied By Spots And Peeling
good evening doctor. I have a 2 month old baby. it looks like itchy face, small spots continue to dry scaly. why is that? then how to handle it? any cure.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Itching accompanied by a rash on the baby's face can be caused by several possibilities, including:
atopic dermatitis or eczema
miliaria or prickly heat
To find out the best treatment for rashes on your baby's face, a direct examination should be done to clearly determine the cause. But given the corona virus pandemic now, it is not recommended to do a doctor's examination unless it is really forced (in an emergency). The following are some things you can try to do for a while:
Clean your child's face with soft baby soap every day (just once a day), choose baby soap that does not contain fragrance. Don't rub baby's face too hard.
Apply skin moisturizer after the baby is bathing on the baby's skin, if the rash feels dry, give moisturizer more often. Choose a skin moisturizer that does not contain fragrance
If the baby has a lot of saliva, clean it well using a clean towel or tissue, clean the face area well after the baby drinks milk
Set the temperature of the baby's bedroom, if you use air conditioning, you should also install a humidifier or air humidifier in the baby's bedroom
Don't squeeze a rash on the baby's face
In most cases, the rash on the baby's face will go away in a few weeks to several months. If the rash appears along with a fever, immediately take it to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
