Red Boils Like Boils On The Baby’s Body At 2 Months?
The mission wants to ask. So my sister has children. Now the child is still a baby, he is still 2 months old. Since that month, the baby has a lot of red spots, big spots like boils. Beginning at the forehead. Then the forehead was clean eh now in the neck back and front, and back of his body. So behind the body from the neck to the back of the waist. And in his hand there is also a little. Sometimes it even reaches the head. If my mother said the first name was flashy. Some are big and some are small. But bouncy like boils like that. Why is that? Suggestions for medicines and food if there are challenged for mothers who are breastfeeding yes. Thanks.
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of red spots resemble boils on the baby's body, such as on the forehead, neck, back, waist, hands, until the head there are many possible causes, for example:
Prickly heat (miliaria)
Chicken pox (varicella)
Folliculitis (inflammation of hair roots)
Others, for example neonatal acne, allergies, hand foot and mouth disease, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, impetigo, insect bites, seborrheic dermatitis, drug eruptions, scabies, tinea corporis, tinea versicolor, herpetiformis dermatitis, etc.
Such spots may require different treatments depending on the cause and severity. Therefore, you should not let the conditions continue. Check your nephew directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist so that the condition can be given the right solution. Some types of drugs, ointments, creams, or powder can be given by your doctor to your niece. Or, your doctor may also direct your niece to have her blood checked or an allergy test done so that you can detect the exact cause of her complaint.
At present, what can be done with the conditions are:
Give the baby more milk, do not carelessly feed or drink extra before the age of 6 months
There are no views or special food recommendations that a mother needs to consume to overcome her baby's complaints. Enough consumption of a balanced nutritional value of food and does not cause allergies so that it can produce a lot of milk and quality for the baby.
Bathe your niece with clean water, using special baby bathing products
Give the baby clothes that are clean, the material is soft, loose, and absorbs sweat
Maintain cleanliness and air circulation around the baby
Hope this helps ...
