How To Deal With Baby Skin Red, Thickened And Watery?
Morning, I want a consultation. Initially, my baby’s skin seemed to have been exposed to water droplets, gradually became red, thickened and a little watery. What skin disease do you think? And how to treat it?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The baby's skin condition, as you mentioned, may indicate the following conditions, namely:
Miliaria or prickly heat, usually accompanied by itching with the baby scratching Diaper rash, usually in the area covered by the diaper Allergic reactions to food Infection of the Milia virus, which is sometimes referred to as baby acne
So, to know for sure, a direct examination by a dermatologist is needed, because skin disorders can often cause misunderstandings if they are not directly examined by an expert. Therefore, the best step you can take now is to have your child examined by a dermatologist. In general, a dermatologist only needs to ask you a few brief things such as temperature conditions at home, whether using an air conditioner or fan, the type of child's clothing before seeing it directly to make a diagnosis. The treatment that you will receive will be adjusted to the examination, but usually in the form of external medicine.
In the meantime, do not apply or sprinkle anything without a doctor's advice, keep your child clean and the environment in which they live, wear loose clothing, and keep them from sweating too often due to the hot ambient temperature. We wish your child a speedy recovery.
That's all, hope it helps.
