Red Inflamed Skin With Swelling And Blue Lips In A 4 Month Old Baby?
Hello, my baby is 4 months old, the skin on his face is red like hives but the breath is not hot, the child is fussy, his lips are pale blue, is this an allergy or poisoning, because he sucked a wet tissue
Thanks for the question. Allergic reactions can be experienced by anyone from children to adults. Reactions that arise also vary widely from mild to life-threatening. Allergic reactions that arise can include a red rash that feels itching / hives, swollen eyes, swollen lips, stuffy throat, difficulty breathing, palpitations, stomach pain, vomiting, and fainting. Was your child exposed to something new before these symptoms appeared? Allergic reactions are usually triggered by exposure to something. Facial skin that looks red can appear if the baby cries loudly. Lips that look pure blue should be watched out for and need further examination. Blue lips are known as cyanosis. Cyanosis is caused by a lack of oxygen carried by the blood to an area of the body. Cyanosis found on the lips can be caused by cold or congenital heart disease. We recommend that you check your baby to a pediatrician for further examination. Doctors need to know the health condition of your child from birth and then examine your child. If necessary, the doctor will perform further examinations such as blood tests, X-rays, and echocardiography, to determine the cause. Further treatment will be given to your child in accordance with the health conditions experienced by your child. In the meantime, keep your child out of the cold; use blankets as needed.
Hope this information is useful.
