But right now the skin on the stomach is rather dry. Is it dangerous? Because it is so long, this blan has white skin
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Regarding the use of eucalyptus oil in infants, indeed until now there is still much debate about the level of safety for infants. Some stated that it was okay as long as the baby did not cause a reaction on the skin, and there were those who said that it still could not and waited until the child was 10 years old. However, among the possible adverse effects claimed to be experienced by infants or toddlers who use eucalyptus oil are:
Problems with the central nervous system
Trigger irritation, redness, heat, burning
Indigestion like nausea
Of course, on the one hand, our society often gives eucalyptus oil to children under 10 years and so far rarely found problems, so it is precisely this that has caused debate between those who say may and may not. Everything back to you whether you want to continue giving it or not, but clearly you must know the danger sign. Dry skin itself can actually also be due to the soap it uses, the lack of consuming fluids and cold air, so it is most appropriate actually if you consult a dermatologist about this, so you can know specifically about the condition of your child now.
Meanwhile, it doesn't matter if you don't want to use eucalyptus oil, don't need to worry too much, and just take care of your child's health by giving him enough nutrition every day. So, hopefully answering your question.
