Causes Of Baby’s Lips Are A Bit Red?
Afternoon, I want to ask how do you treat a 5-month-old baby and her lips look red, are they really hot or what?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In the medical world, there are actually no conditions that use the term internal heat as a standard term. This term is popular in Indonesia to describe discomfort in the throat, which can include painful swallowing, burning in the neck, or general weakness. So because heartburn is a subjective feeling from the person who feels it, because your child is only 5 months old and has not been able to communicate his condition well, it is difficult to determine it.
So our advice, you should pay attention to the following signs in your baby to determine if he needs to be taken to the doctor:
Baby has a fever or feels warm Baby has a cold sweat Baby is lazy to suckle or drink Looks weak and lacks energy Not as active as usual Diarrhea, vomiting, shortness of breath or cough Weight does not increase with age
Or in short is anything that you feel is abnormal happening to your baby. This includes the current condition. If you are still worried, don't hesitate to check with your child's doctor. Meanwhile continue to breastfeed your baby, and warm compresses if you have a fever, and avoid giving any medicine without doctor's advice. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
