Red Birthmark And Wound On The Baby’s Armpit 2.5 Months?
A good afternoon? I have a baby aged 2.5 months and under the armpits there is a red birthmark and it is injured. Is that dangerous? And where do you want to check and what specialist doctor? Thank you
From the information you have conveyed, there is no risk of a birthmark, in general there is no risk, however, it is necessary to confirm directly by your pediatrician to know the type of birthmark and the type of wound that accompanies it. Thus, by looking directly at the condition of the wound, the doctor can confirm the possible risks and the treatment plan that can be given.
By ensuring all these conditions, it is hoped that the wound in the affected area can immediately improve and reduce the risk of infection.
In the meantime, you can treat the wound with the antiseptic iodine and cover the wound with sterile gauze and a bandage over it until you see your doctor. If the bleeding doesn't stop, then you can visit the emergency room at the nearest hospital.
That is the information we can convey.
