Hi Mrs. Atiyulia,


Baby's skin is sensitive and thin skin, so it is vulnerable to external influences such as air, moisture, allergens, and germs. Scaly skin can be caused by:

Seborrheic dermatitis
Dry baby skin
Atopic dermatitis
Irritation or allergies, for example from soap
Food and drug allergies
Psoriasis


There are many other diseases. In newborns, susceptible to seborrheic dermatitis. It usually affects the scalp and oily areas of the body such as the back, upper chest, forehead, armpits and groin.


Mothers should not rub onions all over the baby's body because onions can cause heat and irritation. You should take your child to a pediatrician or dermatologist to make sure the cause is back. If you are allergic, you can ask what should be avoided.


To reduce symptoms and prevent them from getting worse, you should avoid using ointments without consulting your doctor first. Do not scratch/rub too hard the scaly area.


Regards,


dr. Mega
