Red And Inflamed Bumps On Babies Aged 4 Months?
At night, my child was only 4 months old, suddenly arrived in the area around the head there was an inflamed red bump on the back of the head, forehead, and also the hand, even though I was not bitten by a mosquito, when I bathe it with a wipe, it’s okay, the symptoms were just discovered earlier. after a few hours, where did it come from? Is it from the water? The basin here has a lot of larvae, and the water does not always flow because it fills the tub only at times and the others are filled using buckets because it is for water stock.
Hello Amir, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Bentles in infants can be triggered by several things, such as allergies, hot weather, and insect bites. The bumps on baby's skin will usually disappear by themselves within a few hours or days. However, if this bump does not disappear, it may be a sign of some skin disease, such as:
-Furunkulosis is inflammation of the hair follicles and surrounding tissue in the form of red bumps that can contain pus and are accompanied by pain.
- Folliculitis is inflammation of the hair follicles caused by bacteria or fungi in the form of red bumps of red with hair in the middle that feels itchy or sore, and may contain pus or blood.
-Impetigoadalah skin infections caused by bacteria that cause blisters or red spots and from this wound will come out a yellow liquid, which can dry and crust.
- Boils are infections of the hair glands or oils caused by bacteria that cause red lumps and then contain pus.
The things you can do right now are:
- Apply calamine lotion to the itchy baby's skin
- Maintain cleanliness of the baby's skin, diligently bathing the baby with clean water
- Do not use damp baby clothes
- Dry the baby's skin with a clean towel
- Use thin and loose clothes
- Use mosquito nets if there are a lot of mosquitoes
- Maintaining the nutritional needs of the baby are fulfilled
If your baby's bump does not disappear, I suggest you to consult directly with a pediatrician or dermatologist for a thorough examination, so that treatment can be given according to your child's diagnosis.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully can help you.
