Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of black spots in infants aged 4 months can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a general effect of lesions or inflammation (eg post-trauma, post-contact dermatitis, post-atopic dermatitis, post-psoriasis, post-insect bite) which causes skin lesions in the form of discoloration to black, irregular shape and located in the former place of occurrence lesions or inflammation, can last for several months or years
Atopic dermatitis, which is chronic and recurrent skin inflammation, is associated with a history of atopy (often runny nose and sneezing in the morning, asthma, often red eyes if exposed to dust / other triggers) in patients / families
Pityriasis versicolor, also called tinea versicolor or phlegm, causes fungal infections of Malassezia furfur in the upper layers of the skin, symptoms: white to black brown spots, fine scales, firm borders, irregular shapes, often located at the top of the chest, arms top, neck, face, to the scalp, it can be accompanied by itching
Pitiriasis alba, symptoms: oval-shaped white patches, indistinct borders, rough scaly, flat surface, the main location is the cheeks, arms and upper body, no itching, often occurs at age 3-16 years, associated with a history of atopy [ asthma, frequent sneezing and runny nose in the morning, often red eyes after exposure to allergenic substances] to the family / patient
If the complaint is felt to be so disturbing, we encourage you to have your baby examined directly by a doctor or dermatologist and can be evaluated and given the necessary treatment. The doctor will do anamnesis, physical examination, and support (if there are indications, for example: skin chop test for allergy testing). Your doctor may give you a medicine in the form of a cream / ointment to be applied to the skin that has symptoms.
As a suggestion, it is recommended that you avoid your baby from exposure to substances that can cause problems with the skin (including mosquito bites), bathe, change and wash children's clothes regularly, cleanse the baby's cheeks after breastfeeding, do not wear clothes that are too tight, and use softer (relatively non-irritating) soaps like baby soap.
