Ass … I want to ask if milk hits the baby’s vagina will cause disease or not

1 Answer:

Hi Dea,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

ASI (breast milk) contains many components that are very good for maintaining the health of the baby, while supporting growth and development. However, contact between breast milk and skin, including pubic skin does not always mean good.


Baby's skin is generally still very sensitive. Therefore, improper treatment can cause inflammation of the skin. Contact between breast milk and baby's vaginal skin, if immediately cleaned properly should not be dangerous. However, if the milk is allowed to settle on the skin of the vagina without being balanced with good hygiene, then this condition can be an ideal gap for microorganisms that cause infections, often fungi or bacteria, to multiply and trigger inflammation. As for the symptoms of inflammation that can appear varied, ranging from vaginal skin that appears reddish, itchy, bruntusan, swollen, secreting abnormal abnormalities, sore, smelly, and so on.


You can observe, are there any symptoms of inflammation as mentioned above experienced by your baby after the skin of the vagina is exposed to breast milk? If not, chances are the condition that your baby is experiencing you don't need to worry about. You just take care so that similar incidents do not recur. In addition, improve the cleanliness of the vagina and intimate organs of the baby well, how to routinely bathe it, cleanse the genitals after defecation, ensure the diapers used are clean and dry, and always wear pants that are clean, dry, and loose for babies.


However, if there are signs of inflammation as we have mentioned above on your baby's pubic skin, you should check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be given the best treatment. Usually, mild conditions will improve simply by giving topical medication from a doctor, for example in the form of ointments or creams. Avoid giving drugs or other treatments carelessly to infants, except when prescribed directly by a doctor.


Hope this helps ...
