Dark Spots On The Lips Of Babies Aged 40 Days Is The Danger?
my baby is 40 days old there is a black spot on the lower lip. Is that a sign of danger ??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Black spots on the baby's lips can be a natural condition or not. Often, these spots are part of a mole (in the medical world called nevus). This mole is formed due to the gathering of melanin-producing pigment cells (melanocytes) in a certain area of the skin, causing the area of the skin to look black. Spots that appear due to moles, are often not prominent, do not widen, and also do not cause other complaints, such as pain or itching. If the mole is correct, of course you do not need to worry, because this condition is not dangerous, and there are no special steps that need to be done.
In addition, black spots on your baby's lips may arise due to other causes, such as skin infections (for example folliculitis, warts), benign or malignant tumors (such as fibroma, melanoma), hyperkeratosis, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, lentigo, and so on.
You can check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that it can be ascertained, normal or not the nodule. If abnormal is suspected, your doctor may recommend your child to undergo further tests, such as a biopsy. At this time, you should not manipulate these spots carelessly, whether they are picking, squeezing, or giving careless handling without direct advice from your doctor. Make sure you always take care of your child's personal hygiene, including by diligently bathing it, as well as cleaning the oral cavity and lips after suckling and while bathing.
Hope this helps ...
