Development Of Nose Hair For 8 Months Baby?
Good evening, I want to ask, if a baby is 8 months old, whether the hair on his nose has grown or not, the problem is my child, the hair on his nose is not visible yet. He said that if there is no hair on the nose, the dirt will get into the nose more easily.
Hello Putri, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Nasal hair has a function to filter dirt and dust that is carried in the air when a person is breathing. Hair on the nose has been there since the baby was born. However, nose hair in this baby is generally very fine so it is likely that you have difficulty seeing the hair on your baby's nose, and that does not mean your child's nose hair is not there at all.
If you are in doubt whether there is hair in your child's nose or not, you can check with the doctor so that the doctor can see more clearly. The absence of nasal hair can be caused by several things (usually not an acquired condition from birth), for example the habit of pulling out the nose hair or shaving the nose hair, frequent blowing the nose, for example due to allergies, alopecia universalis (a condition in which a person loses all the hair on his body ).
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
