Overcoming Black And White Spots On Baby’s Face?
Tonight, Doctor. My child is 2 years and 3 months old. The skin on the feet and hands often arise bumps which may be due to mosquito bites, but the rest I also do not know where the origin of the bumps. The bumps were scratched which then became black marks, as a result the black marks were numerous and the scuffles were continually arising since the middle of last year. I like to apply Noroid cream, fading but always new. Then on his face, lately also arise white spots which are quite disturbing too. I use Mustela facial cream. Please enlighten me. Do I need to take it to a dermatologist?
The emergence of black spots on the skin after inflammation, irritation or injury is very likely caused by post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (post inflammation hyperpigmentation). While the condition of the appearance of white spots on the skin can be caused by imperfect wound healing, fungal infections (tinea versicolor) or skin disorders such as vitiligo.
Because you have done the treatment yourself and the complaint is still settled you should consult with a pediatrician and dermatologist to ascertain the cause of your child's complaints so that appropriate treatment is given.
If your child's condition is caused by both of the above, your doctor may consider using topical corticosteroid (topical) drugs, topical retinoids or laser procedures to treat your child's complaints.
The following recommendations for your child:
Avoid conditions that cause and aggravate complaints Use long-sleeved clothing or long pants to prevent mosquito bites Use clothing with soft cotton to prevent skin irritation The following article relates to your question:
