Hello, good afternoon Fenny.
The complaints that your baby experiences in the form of red spots on the face can be caused by several disease conditions. Among them:
miliaria / prickly heat atopic dermatitis (eczema). This disease is caused by sensitive skin or allergies. This disease is characterized by a baby's skin becoming red, cracked, dry, and itchy. impetigo (bacterial infection) fungal infection (ringworm) Slapped Cheek Syndrome, which is a viral infection that causes fever and a bright red rash on both cheeks that can feel itchy. This disease does not need special treatment and will heal by itself in a few days, cow's milk allergy, etc.
We cannot conclude the diagnosis of your baby's condition based solely on the information you provide without seeing your baby's skin negligence directly. It should be noted that skin disease is a disease that is very difficult to diagnose without direct examination, because each skin disease has its own characteristics, which can only be distinguished by direct examination. Therefore, we recommend that you check your baby with a specialist in skin diseases, considering that this complaint has been experienced for 2 months and really makes you worried.
Here are things you can do at home as initial treatment, while waiting for the doctor's appointment:
continue to bathe the baby as usual using water that is not too extreme (not too hot). Use hypoallergenic baby soap to prevent allergies and irritation. Avoid using soaps that contain antiseptic substances because this can dry out the baby's face, make it easier for irritation, and itch easily. Change baby clothes whenever it feels damp or wet. Supervise your baby not to scratch his face, because scratching can cause skin blisters and facilitate secondary infection. Also cut the baby's fingernails if they are long so as not to injure the facial skin, avoid using baby creams or other baby body treatments around facial skin, especially baby body care that contains perfume / fragrance, antiseptic substances, and alcohol
Hope this helps.
